Program Description

The Master of Science in Management and Engineering in Production Systems is a unique program conducted as a combination of two European high level universities well reputed in their specific fields. The German RWTH Aachen University holds one of the best faculties of mechanical engineering worldwide and conducts the program’s engineering part. The Dutch Maastricht School of Management (MSM) has a worldwide reputation for its programs in business and management teaching.

Degree Content

Engineering & Management at RWTH Aachen University, Germany

The program’s part which is derived from the M.Sc. program Production Systems Engineering provides in-depth knowledge and understanding of production technology, production systems and production-related processes. It particularly focuses on industrial R&D practice in the four areas of organisation, manufacturing technology, production machines and resources, and quality management. Research directly influences the curriculum, ensuring that students are exposed to the most up-to-date information and practices possible.

Management at Maastricht School of Management, Netherlands

Maastricht School of Management contributes the business-related component to this program. Students will be trained as a globally-oriented manager with solid knowledge of the core management processes and with understanding of the major social and environmental issues that set the scene for business processes in emerging economies. Throughout the program, students will be challenged to explore feasible innovations that balance business and development perspectives.

For Your Information

RWTH Aachen offers some of its courses of study in collaboration with other (private) institutions. They are not part of the courses of study under public law, and thus are not governed by legal guidelines, e.g. university placement allocation. Some have tuition fees and require a period of professional experience.

Information about prerequisites, application processes, the university placement allocation process, and academic content is available from the host institution, to which you are applying.
