On the basis of the competence profile acquired, graduates of the LRT bachelor's programme have a wide range of applications both in the development and operation of complex technical systems:

  • In the free economy, both in the national and international aerospace industry, but also in other branches of industry such as automotive or rail vehicle construction, shipbuilding or general mechanical engineering;
  • In scientific areas at universities, universities of applied sciences or other research institutions (e.g. the German Aerospace Center, DLR, or the institutes of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, FhG);
  • In the administration, in federal and state authorities as well as in the European Union such as the Federal Aviation Authority (LBA), Federal Office for Aircraft Accident Investigation (BFU), Federal Ministries of Transport and Defence.


In the scientific field, graduates find a broad field of activity at universities, universities of applied sciences and research institutions (e.g. German Aerospace Center DLR, Institutes of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft FhG).

Graduates of the aerospace industry can also be employed outside the actual aerospace industry, for example in the branches of industry such as automotive and rail vehicle construction, ship technology and general mechanical engineering; companies from wind energy and medical technology can also be considered. Software, system and consulting companies also offer suitable jobs.
