Student Research Projects
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
Since the requirements and the necessary prerequisites for working on current student research projects at LTF are very different, we try to adapt the topics accordingly to interested students or distribute them in a targeted manner. If you are interested in carrying out a student research project in our field, please send an email to email@example.com 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, ...).
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.
Furthermore, you will find a small selection of current topics below, if currently available.

Student Research Projects in Cooperation with the University of the German Armed Forces (Ludwig-Bölkow-Campus)
The Chair of Turbomachinery and Flight Propulsion maintains close contact with the Department of Aeronautical Engineering of the Federal Armed Forces in Munich and with the Department of Jet Propulsion in Neubiberg. Within the framework of this cooperation, mainly constructive/experimental topics are offered at the Ludwig Bölkow Campus in Ottobrunn for student research projects and HiWi activities, which can also be carried out by TUM students in consultation with the chair:
- Link to current work at the Professorship for Aero Engines (Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Andreas Hupfer)
- Link to current work at the Institute for Jet Propulsion (Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Reinhard Niehuis)
Contact: Dr.-Ing. W. Erhard
