Aerospace is an engine of technological change that is itself undergoing a far-reaching transformation through digital technologies. The new online course “Digitalisation in Aeronautics and Space” offers insights into this process and how it is impacting the working world of engineers. With lecturers from several research institutions and leading companies, this free Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is intended for professionals, students and anyone with an interest in technology.
How is artificial intelligence being used in satellite research? How is automation affecting production processes in aeronautics? How are robotics and digitalization changing corporate workflows in the industry? To answer these and other questions on the technological transformation in the aerospace sector, the research network Munich Aerospace and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have created an English-language online course. The MOOC is available free of charge starting today on the Coursera learning platform.Researchers from TUM, Universität der Bundeswehr München (UniBwM), the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and Bauhaus Luftfahrt as well as speakers from such companies as Airbus and the analysis and testing service provider IABG, explain the effects of digitalization on production, maintenance and certification in the aerospace sector. In a welcoming address, the Bavarian State Minister for Digital Affairs, Judith Gerlach, explains the role of aerospace research for the Bavarian digitalization strategy.
