TUM Asia's Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering (MSc in AE) is a programme that caters to highly qualified engineers to meet the ever-increasing demand from a growing aerospace sector in Singapore, Europe, and the world.


Germany is known as the Land of Ideas and the term “German Engineering” is associated with quality, excellence and technical greatness. Combine that with the context of Asia – China and India already making up one-third of the world’s consumer population – and the widespread embrace of technology among Asian consumers, our degree programmes offer students a competitive edge in understanding market trends.

Conferred by Technical University of Munich (Germany), with coursework conducted in Singapore at TUM's branch campus, TUM Asia. The course is conducted in English.


24 months full-time research and application-focused programme, inclusive of internship experience and Master Thesis writing.

  • The student has to complete 19 modules in 3 semesters (7 Core Modules, 9 Elective Modules, 2 Cross Discipline Modules, 1 Business & Technical English Module)
  • 45 Contact hours for every Core & Elective Module
  • 10 Contact hours for every Cross-Discipline Module


Because our TUM professors work with leading companies in the industry, they engage their students by combining theoretical knowledge with their real-life experiences. We fly in our TUM professors from Germany to teach on an exclusive teaching basis, ensuring no compromise on quality. Students gain insights from the European and Asian industry, allowing them to take these knowledge to new heights when they eventually go out to the industry or research sector.


You are able to complete your Internship and Thesis in Munich, Singapore or anywhere in the world, with any company or research institution.

Our globalised classroom also provides a good test-bed for the workplace. The ability to work with people from different cultures is now an essential skill for the workplace and there is no better place to start than in our classroom.
