Student Research Projects/Theses
Interested in a student research project or working as a student assistant at the Chair of Turbomachinery and Flight Propulsion?
We are looking for interested students of aeronautics, astronautics and other fields of study to support us in current research work. We offer various theoretical, experimental and constructive student research projects in a wide range of fields related to gas turbines and propulsion systems for aircraft, helicopters and rockets. Much of this work is done in close cooperation with renowned industrial partners and thus also provides insights into the "industrial working world".
Current Theses at the Chair of Turbomachinery and Flight Propulsion
If you are interested in conducting a student research project in our field, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a list of your previous studies (performance record), any special knowledge (programming/software knowledge, ...) and preferences (in the field of aerospace propulsion, an experimental/constructive or theoretical project, ...). As the requirements and prerequisites for current study projects at LTF vary significantly, we endeavor to tailor topics to suit interested students or distribute them selectively.
If you are interested in the field of space propulsion, please visit the website of the chair of space propulsion to find out about possible student research projects.
Additionally, below is a small selection of current available topics.
