The Institute for Jet Propulsion and Turbomachinery is active in numerous research areas. In addition to classical turbomachinery, energy conversion systems such as low-sound, hybrid electric aerospace propulsion systems are researched and developed.
More than 30 PhD students are working on various topics in the fields of zero-emission aviation, noiseless propulsors, axial and centrifugal compressors, flow measurement technology, CFD methods, and space propulsion.
The competences of the institute in the mentioned areas are extended in various research projects. In addition to the coding and application of simulation tools, experimental research is also part of the institute's activities.
