Training and Mentoring

The qualification concept relies on topic-specific training, the development of professional skills, and international mentoring. These components support doctoral candidates in enhancing their abilities to reflect on goals, values, and methods in scientific work and publishing results in international forums. The primary objective of the study program is to enable doctoral candidates to deliver interdisciplinary and internationally recognized research contributions within the scope of the theme and the research training group (RTG). Additionally, they are expected to acquire qualities that distinguish them in the national and international academic and non-academic job markets.

The curriculum is tailored specifically to the research training group and provides in-depth, interdisciplinary knowledge at the interface of various engineering disciplines. Subjects covered include flight mechanics, safety research, operations research, uncertainty quantification, structural mechanics, telecommunications, computer science, photogrammetry and geodata management, meteorology, economics, and infrastructure planning.


Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) will realize the once considered science fiction vision of "flying cars" in the coming years with the market readiness of air taxis. This concept serves as a technology demonstrator for locally emission-free mobility in the third dimension, particularly in areas with high population density, traffic congestion, or complex topography. Advances in electric propulsion and energy storage technologies, including electricity and hydrogen, enable the efficient implementation of AAM. The growing interest in AAM in recent years is noticeable, but societal acceptance ultimately depends on a secure integration into an intelligent air and ground-based structure. This requires the convergence of scientific expertise in areas such as engineering, materials research, simulation, and traffic experiments.
