Aufgrund der schnellen Entwicklungen in der Aviation wird ein angewandtes wissenschaftliches Studium auch für Piloten, Wartungsingenieure und technisches Personal immer interessanter. Die Bewerber müssen bereits ein Bachelorstudium aus dem Bereich der Aviation absolviert haben, um in unseren Masterstudiengang Aeronautical Management aufgenommen werden zu können. Das Masterstudium bereitet die Studierenden auf leitende Positionen in der Luftfahrtsindustrie, in Luftverkehrsgesellschaften und Luftfahrtbehörden vor. Die Dozenten sind sowohl Universitätsprofessoren, als auch Lehrende mit praktischer Erfahrung aus den verschiedenen Geschäftsfeldern der Aviation.

Der Unterricht findet komplett in englischer Sprache statt. Studienbeginn ist jeweils im Oktober zum Wintersemester. Bewerben Sie sich online hier

Program - Master in Aeronautical Management

The master program Aeronautical Management provides an interdisciplinary insight into the aviation systems, i. e. airlines, maintenance facilities and legislational authorities. Applicants have to be graduates of bachelor study programs in aviation systems. It will prepare candidates for positions in leadership within airline industry, air transport and governmental institutions.

Due to the demanding time frame high academic standards and a very diligent work schedule are required. Great importance will be attached to improve the students in analytical skills. In both semesters, research skills and methods will support the ability of the students to tackle a problem in a scientific way and to master the art of researching, writing and presenting research papers. The first semester provides students with an interdisciplinary approach to key factors of aviation management. It will consist of 5 modules, which will be divided into lectures and seminars.

Lectures provide essentials of International Law and Airlaw, Air Transport Business Administration, Management Systems, Risk Management in Airline Operation, and Simulation of Logistic Aviation Systems.

The second semester includes following modules: Human Factors in Leadership, Modelling and Simulation.

Additionally the second semester includes the preparation of the master thesis. For the master thesis, candidates are expected to use their theoretical understanding to deal with an appropriate interdisciplinary topic. Three modules of the second semester are for the preparation of the master thesis. Candidates may propose a theme or project of their own choice.

Ideas and goals 

The master program Aeronautical Management provides an interdisciplinary insight into the aviation systems, i. e. airlines, maintenance facilities and legislational authorities. Applicants have to be graduates of bachelor study programs in aviation systems. The master program is designed to enhance their competencies by the following modules:

Air Transport Business Administration, Risk Management in Airline Operation, International Law and Airlaw, Simulation of Logistic Aviation Systems, Modelling and Simulation, Management Systems, Human Factors in Leadership

The master program will prepare candidates for positions in leadership within the airline industry, air transport and governmental institutions. The instructors staff will be composed of university professors and lecturers with practical airline business experience. Emphasis is laid on an interdisciplinary approach in teaching and learning, group work, and seminars. The program is offered entirely in English. Throughout the academic year, international students can choose from a variety of German language courses. In addition, Hochschule Bremen offers a variety of international summer courses for those, who would like to acquire a basic knowledge of the German language before the beginning of the program.

Degree

After successful completion of the courses and the thesis, students will be awarded the internationally recognised academic degree Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) in Aeronautical Management.

Partner Universities

This program cooperates with several universities world-wide: Universidad Tecnica Federico Santa Maria(UTFSM), Valparaiso, Chile; Academia Ciencias Aeronauticas (ACA), Santiago, Chile; Arizona State University (ASU), Mesa, Arizona, USA; Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, USA

Course Content - Master in Aeronautical Management

In International Law/Airlaw we deal with the interpretation and application of national, supranational and international law (basics and methods) with regard to aviation and airlaw.

Air Transport Business Administration deals with global air transport businesses and markets and international logistics. Additionally, students participate in practical trainings to prepare them to make an own economical decisions.

Human Factors in Leadership aims to impart knowledge and methods in order to enable  independent orientation in dynamic systems with variable regulations. Students will develop interdisciplinary problem solving strategies and will be able to adapt these in the field of engineering and aeronautical management.

Management Systems will enable students to operate in a leading position under consideration of the actual challenge of the market.

Risk Management in Airline Operation introduces general principles of risk management and has a particular focus on the main risk areas in aviation. Topics like the human factor and the man-machine-interface are included.

Simulation of Logistic Aviation System is based on the principles of aviation management and covers the understanding and application of the interdependency between the various parties in aviation industry. Our students will understand the role and connectivity of aircraft producers, airlines, air traffic systems, airports and legal authorities.

Modelling and Simulation consists of a theoretical and a practical component: the introduction to simulation and simulators is basis for further trainings. In the practical part the students are required to build an aircraft simulation model.

Target Group - Master in Aeronautical Management

The program provides up to 15 places for applicants. Applications are welcome from world-wide. The program is especially open for pilots/engineers with an academic degree in aviation systems engineering and management, or with an acceptable degree in related areas like aircraft engineering, maintenance, or air traffic administration plus a practical experience.

The program is offered to obtain competences for careers in the international aviation industry. The master program will prepare candidates for positions in leadership within airline industry, air transport and governmental institutions.

Instructors will not only be university professors but also lecturers with practical airline business experience. Emphasis is laid on an interdisciplinary approach in teaching and learning, group work and seminars. The program is offered entirely in English.
