    FlexFuture is looking for student support


    The department and DLR are developing and designing a highly flexible aircraft in a joint research project. Student support is needed for the project. Possible opportunities include working as a student assistant, writing a thesis and/or doing an internship at DLR. Details can be found in this presentation. For further questions please contact:

    Lecture announcements winter term 2020/21

    The following modules will take place as online courses, even in the current situation.

    The module Experimental Flight Mechanics I will not take place this semester and will probably be postponed to the summer semester together with Experimental Flight Mechanics II and offered as a one-semester module.
