M.Sc. Computer Aided Conception and Production in Mechanical Engineering

Profound skills in computer-aided methods are of growing importance for every engineer in all fields of professional activity. Many leading institutions of higher education all around the world take this into account in the design of their curricula and the teaching methods they apply.

Is this Programme Right for Me?


The M.Sc. Computer Aided Conception and Production in Mechanical Engineering (CAME) at the RWTH Aachen University addresses specifically the purposes of the practicing mechanical engineer. Within one programme you can choose between two specializations – one design-oriented and one production-oriented – to fit your personal interest best. Thus, students can chart a customized learning programme according to your educational background and professional plans.

The CAME programme offers two study tracks: Conception of Machines or Production of Machines. Students decide at the beginning of their studies, which track they will follow. Both specializations consist of lectures and practice elements such as exercises and laboratory sessions during which students will be exposed to the most advanced techniques in the field. Our students are taught by internationally known and academically accredited specialists from the respective disciplines or faculties in an environment that focuses on facilitating your intellectual, professional and personal advancement. Both tracks are built upon common core courses and a range of electives that allows students to specialize in their field of research in more depth. In addition, an industrial internship and a research project work (mini thesis) are an integral part of each study track. The Master Thesis concludes the four-semester study programme to be awarded the M.Sc. degree from the RWTH Aachen University.

Programme Overview


M.Sc. CAME Students have to complete the following course elements as part of their master's degree programme:

  • Compulsory courses (lectures, exercises, laboratory courses)
  • Elective courses (lectures, exercises, laboratory courses)
