The Institute of Jet Propulsion and Turbomachinery (IST) provides various teaching and study courses both for the Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and for the two Master’s degree programmes in "Energy Technology" and "Aeronautical Engineering and Astronautics" at the RWTH Aachen.

The teaching and study courses offered by the IST provide the student with a deeper understanding of the design, thermodynamic calculation and operating behaviour of turbomachines, steam and gas turbines, jet and rocket engines, as well as gas turbine engines for land-based vehicles.

Frequently, challenging experimental as well as numerical subjects for project, bachelor and master theses arise straight from the research activities at the IST.

Detailed information on the teaching and study courses can be found here. The descriptions are in German, since these courses are held only in the German language. We apologize for any inconvenience.
