Main Question or Discussion Point

i am physics bachelors student from Indonesia, and now i have 5 semesters passed. i choose electronics and instrumentation physics here, and focus in microcontroler, and controlling system. i have read many question before, and read the answer, but maybe i have a little question here. which university will match if i want to study aerospace ? i have a plan to get study at the Germany, and my focus maybe in airplane controlling system.
sorry if there any mistakes on my words, my english isn't good enough.
Thanks Before

I really cannot say much about German universities (although I know that there are many fine ones), but in general, I think you should plan to take some undergraduate courses in mechanics, structures, thermodynamics, and a few other areas. There is more to these courses in an engineering curriculum than you would get in a typical physics curriculum.

so, maybe i must take another graduate to get into aerospace, yeah i think you right about that, because here, in physics i just learn about basic thing in electronics and microcontroler. but, is it possible if i get in aerospace directly from physics? or the word "courses" from your reply mean a short courses about engineering ?

The word courses, as I used it, refers to full semester (or quarter) courses offered by the university.

I would guess that you will be needing at least two full years of full time undergraduate engineering courses to do what you propose.
