Steinbeis Certification Course Aircraft Propulsion Technology and qualifikation as a “Propulsion Systems Engineer” (SHB)

The certification course “Aircraft Propulsion Technology” offered by the German Aerospace Academy (ASA) and the Steinbeis University Berlin aims to qualify participants as a “Propulsion Systems Engineer” and enhance the innovative caparity of industries.

Specialists from the aerospace industry and research institutionen, with extensive expertise and experience in the field of Aircraft Propulsion will share their detailed knowledge of the performance of aero engines. The main focus is on the integration of gas turbine theory and its industrial application in gas turbine development, while simultaneously adhering to operational and regulatory requirements. Building on the basics of the aircraft gas turbine technology, both steady state and transient performance of aero engines will be covered in detail, as well as the areas of controls, test, performance analysis and production. An expansive range of current and future aerospace propulsion technology and its application will be presented.

The participants will join the instructors for 8 seminar days, taking place at the German Aerospace Academy ASA in Stuttgart-Böblingen. Furthermore, each participant will work on a knowledge transfer project and present this in a workshop.

TARGET AUDIENCE
Target groups are graduate engineers and advanced engineers, but also professionals and managers who are interested in gaining or in further developing their knowledge in the field of Gas Turbine Performance. Thus, the course is equally suitablefor both specialists as well as for newcomers in this domain.

93100-blau-transparent-eCERTIFICATE AND TITLE
The contents of the course are examined in a 2 hours written test. The grading will be based on the written test and on the transfer project with its presentation and defence. Upon successful completion the participant is awarded the title „Propulsion Systems Engineer (SHB)“ by the Steinbeis University Berlin. In addition 10 ECTS credit points are assigned.

Booking of individual seminar days, or the full seminar, are also possible for participants who do not seek certification. The participant will receive a confirmation of the German Aerospace Academy signed by the ASA Director.

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION
For certification, at least a Bachelor degree in engineering or in an equivalent discipline and a minimum of 3 years experience in system development is required, in the areas of aviation and machine engineering, or an equivalent field. Booking the seminar is also possible for participants who do not seek certification

WIN-WIN-SITUATION

Benefits for the participant
The participant will have access to extensive knowledge of the performance and operation of the gas turbine as a complex system, and learn of various entry-paths into technology development in the aircraft propulsion field, the turbomachinery industry, and in general, high-end engineering sectors. A certificate from the Steinbeis University offers:

  •   in addition to the individual Systems Engineer obtainment, a unique qualification with entry possibilites in a future-oriented, high-tech industry.
  •   an improvement, through certification, of professional and career opportunities.
  •   proof, through certification, of a higher than average commitment to improvement.
  •   a unique certification.

Benefits for the company
A combination of extensive engineering know-how, theory and practical experience in gas turbine systems provides almost an ideal learning environment for the company’s system engineers, tasked with the development of turbo aircraft engines.

KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER PROJECT
To adapt the content of the certification course to a specific task in Aircraft Propulsion Technology, the participant will work on a knowledge transfer paper. It will connect the content of different modules, providing practice for the participants in the interdisciplinary work of aircraft propulsion. The topic will be handed out during the seminar. The results of the Transferpaper will be presentet on a workshop and expounded to the whole group so that the participants will learn from each other.

WORKSHOP
As part of the certification course, a workshop will take place to present and discuss the transfer paper. The results and their solution(s) are expounded to the whole group so that the participants will learn from each other.
