DLR is the national aeronautics and space research centre of the Federal Republic of Germany. Its extensive research and development work in aeronautics, space, energy, transport and security is integrated into national and international cooperative ventures. In addition to its own research, as Germany’s space agency, DLR has been given responsibility by the federal government for the planning and implementation of the German space programme. DLR is also the umbrella organisation for the nation’s largest project execution organisation.
DLR has approximately 7400 employees at 16 locations in Germany: Cologne (headquarters), Augsburg, Berlin, Bonn, Braunschweig, Bremen, Goettingen, Hamburg, Juelich, Lampoldshausen, Neustrelitz, Oberpfaffenhofen, Stade, Stuttgart, Trauen, and Weilheim. DLR also has offices in Brussels, Paris, Tokyo and Washington D.C.
The shortage of qualified talent in the aerospace industry is a burning issue. In 2014, this is once again where the ILA CareerCenter makes its mark.
In Germany alone there are thousands of unfilled positions for scientists, engineers and skilled workers within the aerospace industry. In addition, the general labor market can barely supply the demand for business specialists, flight crews and career changers. At the ILA CareerCenter, however, you will reach both qualified personnel and newcomers.
With an attractive offer of events and services, the ILA CareerCenter has developed into one of the largest aerospace job fairs.

Aero-thermodynamics of space vehicle re-entry, safety of nuclear reactors, noise and pollution reduction, design of aircraft engines and renewable energy systems define to a large extent the research performed at the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics (VKI). These and many other topics gather young engineers and scientists from all over the world at the VKI to study, improve their skills and perform their research. Located in Sint-Genesius-Rode, near Brussels, this non-profit international educational and scientific organization is specialized in fluid dynamics (anything which flows) in the areas of Aeronautics and Aerospace, Environmental and Applied Fluid Dynamics, and Turbomachinery and Propulsion. The von Karman Institute prides itself in providing “advancedtraining in research through research”.
The VKI provides a research master in fluid dynamics (at master-after-master level) and a short training programme. The call for applications for the research master and short training programme is opened.
