Program Description

The Master of Science in Management and Engineering in Computer Aided Mechanical Engineering" (MME-CAME) is an interdisciplinary program conducted by the RWTH Aachen University and the Dutch Maastricht School of Management (MSM). It comprises two semesters of lectures, exercises and practical courses in mechanical engineering at RWTH along with an eighteen-week management training at MSM during the third semester. To complete the Master's degree students have to achieve 48 ECTS of compulsory courses in engineering from which 5 ECTS make up a compulsory elective course. The management part consists of 45 ECTS of compulsory courses. A German Language course (2 ECTS) is also an integral part of the curriculum.
The master thesis (25 ECTS) is to be completed in the fourth semester and can be written either at the RWTH Aachen University or the Maastricht School of Management. After successful completion of the program, the M.Sc. degree from the RWTH Aachen University will be awarded.

Degree Content

Computer Aided Mechanical Engineering at RWTH Aachen:

The program's first year in engineering at the RWTH Aachen University is designed to broaden and increase the knowledge and practical use of computer-aided simulation techniques in mechanical engineering with a focus on the development and application of computer-aided methods and systems at all stages of product development. It provides in-depth knowledge and understanding of finite element methods, numerical methods, simulation, mechanics, software engineering, and production management. Current research directly influences the curriculum and ensures that students are exposed to the most up-to-date information and practices.

Business and Economics at Maastricht School of Management:

The Maastricht School of Management contributes the business-related component to this program. Students will be trained as a globally-oriented managers 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. Research-based knowledge is combined with a broad interdisciplinary view of management in courses that take an explicitly strategic and integrative view of the management function. Throughout the program, students will be challenged to explore feasible innovations that balance business and development perspectives.

Prerequisites

A prerequisite for starting this course of studies is a first university degree with which the necessary background education can be proven as determined in the examination regulations. The examination board determines whether the applicant fulfills the entrance requirements.

Career Prospects

The Master course of study is an interdisciplinary industrial engineering program providing, on the one hand, in-depth knowledge and understanding of finite element methods, numerical methods, simulation, mechanics and software engineering, on the other hand, solid knowledge of the core management processes and an understanding of the major social and environmental issues that set the scene for international business operations in emerging economies.

Graduates trained to understand both the art of management and complex engineering processes are increasingly sought after in today's industrial world. Be it in traditional manufacturing companies or in consulting firms, in financial institutions or in the food industry, in logistics companies or health care establishments – industrial engineers have the choice and enjoy the flexibility of working in many different professional areas. Not all industrial engineers spend their entire professional life working in interdisciplinary activities, but with the M.Sc. MME-CAME program you will gain the skill set and competencies to work at the interface of technology and business administration.

In being awarded the RWTH Aachen University Master's Degree, graduates are also qualified doctoral studies.

Examination Regulations

Exam regulations regulate academic goals, the course of study layout, and exam procedures. The appendix to the regulations contains the description of the modules, from which the course of study is composed.

Faculty

The Master course of study is offered by RWTH's Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in cooperation with the RWTH School of Business and Economics. The third semester takes place at the Maastricht School of Management in the Netherlands.

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.
