The course of study enables graduates to gain further qualified practice of profession. The qualification includes technical knowledge in electrical engineering and especially interdisciplinary competencies as well as independent scientific work. Graduates of the course are qualified for different positions in industry such as in the areas of power generation, power transmission and distribution, project management and also research and development. The course of study places a basis for future leading positions in industry. By the combination of technical knowledge with means of management and sustainability, graduates highly improve their career chances in professional life.
With the completion of the course of study, graduates are qualified explicitly by the university interface of research and teaching for an advanced scientific career, e.g. by doctoral studies. Also other interdisciplinary positions in the areas of consulting or engineering offices are suitable options.
The programme comprises two semesters of lectures, exercises and practical courses in electrical power systems engineering at the RWTH Aachen University, along with an eighteen-week management training at the Maastricht School of Management. During the eighteen weeks of management training, students are trained in small-groups to solve problems related to global transformation and sustainable competitiveness, organization development. All these courses are held at the Maastricht School of Management in Maastricht in the Netherlands. The final master thesis is an independent, pre-defined scientific project to be completed in a fixed period of six months. The master thesis is generally concluded by an oral presentation.
