MISSION AEROSPACE ENGINEERING: Our Research and Innovations

From novel aircraft and transport systems to communication and satellite technology to observing and mapping our planet with unprecedented precision: Aerospace and geodesy have jointly started their "mission earth", taking the mobility on and above the earth into new dimensions and thus radically changing our everyday life.

The Department of Aerospace and Geodesy (LRG) was founded in 2018 as the 15th department of the Technical University of Munich. With its currently 22 professorships and chairs, the department is already playing in the Champions League of research: In the Shanghai Subject Ranking , it ranks 8th in geodesy/remote sensing and 16th in aerospace worldwide – making the LRG the undisputed number one in Germany. Through professional reinforcements as well as extensive investments at the new locations in Taufkirchen/Ottobrunn and Oberpfaffenhofen, this position will be further strengthened in the years to come and will make the LRG the largest department of its kind in Europe.
