On 09.07.2010 the Technical University of Munich (TUM), the Universität der Bundeswehr München (UniBw M), the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in the form of its Oberpfaffenhofen Institutes and Bauhaus Luftfahrt e.V. (BHL) founded the association Munich Aerospace e. V. –Bavarian Research Network.

Against this background, the partners, science, industry, economy and politics in the field of aerospace technology in Europe are committed to promoting. One aim of this cooperation between the TUM and the UniBw M is to facilitate and promote continuity between the institutions at academic level and, in the field of teaching, to offer students an opportunity to attend the courses of the respective partner university which complement each other in many sub-areas. The declared aim of the cooperation is to give students of aerospace engineering the opportunity to integrate modules from the relevant Master's degree programmes of both universities into the respective study programme of their home university by means of mutual recognition and networking. Within the framework of the cooperation, students of the TUM in the degree programmes Aeronautics and Astronautics can introduce individual modules from a corresponding Master's programme at the UniBw M as supplementary subjects, and students of the UniBw M in the degree programme Aerospace Technology can introduce individual modules from a corresponding Master's programme at the TUM as optional subjects into their respective studies.

In order to facilitate the mutual student exchange, the teaching units / modules named in the individual faculties are marked as Munich Aerospace partner modules. Students who are interested in this exchange of teaching experience are recommended:

1. to consult Munich Aerospace's homepage, especially the section "Teaching" or "Courses" (www.munich-aerospace.de). There you will find the currently offered teaching units / modules as well as guidelines for the administrative procedure to be followed (unfortunately not completely avoidable) in a clear form. Students must register with the respective partner university. However, care was taken to make this procedure as student-friendly as possible.

2. to consult at the UniBw M (Dr. T. Andert, Institute of Space Technology & Space Applications - ISTA, tom.andert@unibw.de, Zi. 35/1403, Tel.: +49 89 6004-3598). (For students from the TUM contact person is Tuğba Akman, M.Sc., Tel.: +49 89 289-16056, E-Mail: tugba.akman@tum.de, Chair of Flight System Dynamics, Boltzmannstr. 15, 85748 Garching near Munich).

The Bavarian Research Network of Aerospace Technology wishes the students much pleasure and success in taking up this offer.

About Munich Aerospace

Pooling individual key aerospace competencies, a training centre was founded in 2010 dedicated to research, development and academic training: Munich Aerospace – Bavarian Research Network.

Through Munich Aerospace and its pooling of research, graduate programmes and teaching an alliance has been formed between the Technical University Munich (TUM), the Universität der Bundeswehr München (UniBw M), the German Aerospace Center and particularly its institutes located in Oberpfaffenhofen (DLR), as well as Bauhaus Luftfahrt e. V. (BHL). The primary goal of this alliance is to focus regional strengths and activate its synergies.

The goals of the Association are especially served by the concentration of the various types of scientific and technical expertise, the identification of common research goals and research priorities, defining Munich as an attractive European academic aerospace training centre in the process.

Munich Aerospace is particularly dedicated to the exchange of ideas between research, teaching, politics, and business.


The non-profit Association enjoys funding by the Free State of Bavaria.


Teaching Co-operation with Technical University of Munich

Munich Aerospace has helped considerably in removing teaching-related barriers between the Munich-based partner universities: aerospace students of the Technical University of Munich and the Universität der Bundeswehr München thus enjoy access to teaching events offered by the respective partner university for credit in their own master's degree programme.

For example, students at TUM may include individual modules from the corresponding UniBw M master's programm as additional subjects, and students at UniBw M may add individual modules from the corresponding TUM master's programme as elective courses.
