Pre-course Mathematics for Aerospace

For students of the Bachelor of Aerospace program

You start with the Bachelor of Aerospace program at TUM. Then the "Pre-course Mathematics (LRG)" might be the ideal preparation. The course is given in English. This course is not mandatory for your studies. However, it is highly recommended. 



The pre-course mathematics for the Bachelor of Aerospace program takes place from October 4 until October 13, 2022. A typical day of the pre-course looks as follows:

  • 08:00 - 11:30: lecture (including a break)
  • 11:30 - 13:00: lunch break
  • 13:00 - 17:00: exercise (including individual breaks)


The pre-course is planned to take place on site at the campus in Garching. Further information will be published on Moodle (see below).


If you want to participate in the pre-course, please register via the campus management system TUMonline. Log in there with your login data and then click on "Go to course registration". Registration for the pre-course is possible until 30.09.2022.

Note on registration: You can only register in TUMonline - even after admission, acceptance of a study place and payment of the semester fees - once the Admissions Office has checked all relevant documents and set them to "ok". A letter symbol in your applicant account means that documents have been received by the Admission Office but have not yet been checked. In this case, please wait until a green tick appears as the icon.

Documents for the pre-course on Moodle

With the registration for the pre-course you also have access to the Moodle course of the pre-course. There you will find all teaching materials and further info about the pre-course. Please note that we do not send any material via email.


In the Pre-course Mathematics (LRG) we repeat essential topics from school mathematics. In addition, we address fundamental topics and concepts in engineering mathematics that you will encounter in the first semesters of your studies. Note that the latter are not assumed as prior knowledge. However, these will give you a first insight into your studies. The focal points are

  • Fundamental Concepts and Notation
  • Elementary Operations on the Real Line
  • Trigonometry
  • Vectors
  • Lines and Planes
  • Matrices
  • Analysis of Real-valued Functions
  • Complex Numbers
