Further activities

A regular exchange between researchers, especially from other UTCs, and representatives from industry is a matter of course. The UTC Annaul Review Meeting is held annually, at which the current projects are presented to a larger circle. This allows people who are not involved in the individual projects to get an overview and identify cross-thematic links.

The research work is closely linked to other activities in the area of regional development and teaching.
For example, initiated by an innovation forum on aircraft engine technology funded by the BMBF, the "Network Initiative on Engine Technology" was founded, which is headed by the BTU. Research institutions, engine manufacturers and SMEs work together in this network to promote the development of the Brandenburg/Berlin region as Aviation Region III.

In 2003, the study program Aeroengine Technology, which is unique in Germany, was established, in which a significant part of the application-oriented courses are taught by external experts with the substantial participation of Rolls-Royce and non-university research institutions. Currently, students have the opportunity to choose the major in Aircraft Propulsion within the master's degree program in mechanical engineering.

The interaction of research - teaching - regional development in this form is a unique selling point and the BTU is thus also strategically well positioned in this area.
