Programme Details

The RWTH International Academy will offer this new master programme for the winter semester 2016/17. The website will be updated frequently.

Graduate Profile

The Master of Science in "Management and Engineering in Computer Aided Mechanical Engineering " (MME-CAME) is an interdisciplinary industrial engineering programme 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 with the expertise to understand both the art of management and complex engineering processes are increasingly sought after in today's industrial world. They are the bridge between management goals and operational performance. Industrial engineers are employed in a wide-range of fields: 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 programme you will have gained the skill set and the competencies to do so if you choose to: work at the interface of technology and business administration.

For graduates looking into a future in academia, the M.Sc. MME-CAME also qualifies graduates for PhD studies and a further career path at universities.

Programme Overview

The  “Master of Science in Management and Engineering in Computer Aided Mechanical Engineering" (MME-CAME)  is an interdisciplinary programme conducted by two European universities, well-reputed in their specific fields. The German RWTH Aachen University has one of the best faculties of mechanical engineering worldwide and conducts the programme's engineering part. The Dutch Maastricht School of Management has a worldwide reputation for its programmes in business and management teaching.

The programme 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 the Maastricht School of Management (MSM) in the Netherlands:

  • The mechanical engineering part focuses 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.

  • During the management training at MSM, students are trained in small-groups to solve problems related to global transformation and sustainable competitiveness, organization development, and international project management. In addition, the RWTH School of Business and Economics contributes three management modules during the first year in Aachen.

The final master thesis 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 the Maastricht School of Management. The master thesis is generally concluded by an oral presentation.

To achieve the Master of Science in "Management and Engineering in Computer Aided Mechanical Engineering " students have to achieve 48 ECTS of compulsory courses in engineering from which 5 ECTS make up a compulsory elective course that can be chosen from Multibody Dynamics, Welding and Joining Technologies, Manufacturing Technology II or Factory Planning. The management part consists of 45 ECTS of compulsory courses.

In addition to the course work, students must also complete the following as part of their programme:

  • A complementary German course
  • A master thesis.

Please refer to the CAMPUS system of the RWTH Aachen University to find detailed descriptions for the modules of the study programme and a weekly schedule.

The CAMPUS system will be updated reguarly.
