Do you want to work at the interface of technology, business and entrepreneurship?
The M.Sc. in Management and Engineering in Computer Aided Mechanical Engineering is a two-year full-time industrial engineering program that provides you, on the one hand, with in-depth knowledge and understanding of finite element methods, numerical methods, simulation, mechanics, software engineering and production management, and on the other hand with business, management, leadership and entrepreneurial skills.
As graduates with the expertise to understand both the art of management and complex engineering processes are highly sought after in today’s industrial world, this master course caters to that demand. It will give you the choice and the flexibility to work in two increasingly interlinked fields of today’s professional activity: at the interface of technology and business.
Industrial engineers are employed in a wide-range of fields: in traditional manufacturing companies or in consulting firms, in financial institutions or in the food industry, in logistics companies or health care establishments. With the benefit of a qualification in management your will have the added choice and flexibility of working in even more different sectors and professional capacities.
This master program also qualifies to continue a university career, including doctoral studies.
Why should you choose the M.Sc. in Management and Engineering in Computer Aided Mechanical Engineering?
1. Increase your career options
Graduates with the expertise to understand both the art of management and complex engineering processes are highly sought after in today’s industrial and technological world. This program caters to that demand by giving you the flexibility to work in two increasingly interlinked fields of today’s professional activities: engineering and business administration. As a graduate of the program you will be able to combine management goals and operational performance.
2. Experience world-class engineering education
The scientific leadership of the M.Sc. in Management and Engineering in Computer Aided Mechanical Engineering lies with the Institute of General Mechanics (IAM) of the RWTH Aachen University. Current research directly influences the curriculum and ensures that you are exposed to the most up-to-date information and practices.
3.Develop your global leadership skills
On the management side, Maastricht School of Management’s six decades of international experience in global management education will enrich your skills as a globally-oriented manager. You will become a master in core management processes and of the major social and environmental issues that set the scene for business processes in emerging economies. You will also be challenged to explore feasible innovations that balance business and development perspectives – taking account of both social and environmental sustainability. Maastricht School of Management has a worldwide reputation for its programs in business and management teaching.
4. Learn from diversity
You will share your study experience with fellow participants from all over the world. Not only will they represent various cultural backgrounds, but they will also come from different business sectors, study backgrounds and different personal networks. Not only will this help you to develop your multi-cultural leadership skills, but it will also build your global network.
5. Study in two unique historical cities
You will live and study in the heart of Europe. Aachen and Maastricht are unique cities with their own histories, languages and cultures – yet only 30 km apart. Both cities provide the surroundings for a memorable student life.
The study program will be jointly offered by the RWTH Aachen University and the Maastricht School of Management (MSM). Upon successful completion you receive a Master of Science degree from RWTH Aachen University. The M.Sc. in Management and Engineering programs are accredited by ASIIN.
The program comprises two semesters of lectures, exercises and practical courses in mechanical engineering at the RWTH Aachen University along with an eighteen-week management training at Maastricht School of Management. The RWTH School of Business and Economics also contributes three management modules during the first two semesters. The final Master Thesis in the fourth semester is an independent, pre-defined scientific project to be completed in a fixed period of six months and can be written either at the RWTH Aachen University or at Maastricht School of Management. The Master Thesis is generally concluded by an oral presentation (Master’s Defense Colloquium).
The scientific leadership of the M.Sc. in Management and Engineering in Computer Aided Mechanical Engineering lies with the Institute of General Mechanics (IAM) of the RWTH Aachen University.
(Please note that minor changes to the curriculum may still occur)
To achieve the Master of Science in “Management and Engineering in Computer Aided Mechanical Engineering ” students have to complete 48 ECTS in engineering and 45 ECTS in business and management. They conclude their studies with the Master Thesis and Master’s Defense Colloquium, which are worth 25 ECTS in total.
In addition to the course work, students must also complete a German language course (2ECTS) at the beginning of their studies in September.
Please refer to the CAMPUS system of the RWTH Aachen University to find detailed descriptions of the modules and a weekly schedule: www.campus.rwth-aachen.de.
Admission to the MME-CAME program takes place on a competitive basis. Candidates must fulfill the following requirements:
- Academic first degree:a Bachelor of Engineering or Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering or a related discipline, such as Automotive, Aerospace or Energy Engineering, Manufacturing, Structural, Industrial or Production Engineering, awarded by an internationally recognized university-level institution.
- Basic knowledge in business administration. Students with no previous knowledge in management have to participate in a preparatory online course conducted by the School of Business and Economics at the RWTH Aachen University prior to the start of the program (July-September).
