Lecture Aircraft Design

I teach Aircraft Design in two lectures:
  1. The main lecture Aircraft Design (4 SWS) is part of the Bachelor Degree with emphasis on "Design and Lightweight Structures".
  2. An introduction to Aircraft Design (1.5 SWS) is part of the lecture "Aircraft Projects" in the Bachelor Degree with emphasis on "Cabin and Cabin Systems".
This page serves both lectures. However it is the main lecture that is depicted.
