Graduates skilled to understand both the art of management and complex engineering processes are increasingly sought after in today's industrial world. The Master of Science in Management and Engineering in Production Systems is a unique programme conducted as a combination of two European high level universities well reputed in their specific fields.

The course of study “Master of Science Management and Engineering in Electrical Power Systems" (MME-EPS)  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 main objective of the course is to offer methodological and problem orientated education which is related to research as well as to practice. Therefore, advanced knowledge in engineering, science and economics is transferred in this course. In particular, the course modules are focusing on high voltage engineering, electrical machines and battery storage systems used to automatize and manage complex power systems as well as to solve faults and stability problems in power systems. Students will be exposed to such topics as the physical problems of energy storage and power electronics and using computational engineering tools to automatize and manage complex power systems.

The programme Master of Science in Production Systems Engineering builds upon the existing qualifications of the students and facilitates a deepening of the knowledge in the fields of materials, manufacturing processes, process and product engineering, manufacturing system design, manufacturing competitiveness and management. Skills such as leading and functioning within project teams and being able to communicate effectively will be strengthened.

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.

Germany is worldwide the primary location in researching and developing new technologies in mechanical engineering industries and textile production. Germany is also one of the biggest producers of technical textiles.
The RWTH Textile Engineering department (ITA) has been honoured frequently for their innovations and leading position in textile engineering (e.g. Techtextil Innovation Award 2015). The M.Sc. in Textile Engineering at the RWTH Aachen University offers an interdisciplinary curriculum drawing on diverse science and engineering principles.
The programme provides knowledge on the latest development in textile technology in a wide range of subjects covering high-performance fibres, 3D-textiles and new processes and machines to manufacture textile products. In June 2015, the programme has - in addition to the accreditation by ASIIN e.V. - also been accredited by the Textile Institute.

+++ New Programme +++ Expected Start in the Winter Semester 2016/17 +++

The RWTH International Academy works closely together with the International Office of the RWTH Aachen University, the Language Center of the RWTH Aachen University and various institutes of the RWTH Aachen University to offer a perfect mix of technical study and cultural experience. Six technical courses and one German language course offer international students the opportunity to take part in excellent science and research at RWTH Aachen University.

The last intakes for these programmes has been in 2011. Students still enrolled, can contact Ms Teppler for further guidance. The RWTH International Academy wishes all students good luck for their graduation and will be glad to provide support, if necessary.

M.Sc. Combustion Engines - discontinued programme - official ending is SS 2014
