Engineering & Management at RWTH Aachen University
The scientific leadership of the M.Sc. Management and Engineering in Computer Aided Mechanical Engineering lies with the Institute of General Mechanics (IAM) of RWTH Aachen University. Today, the Institute of General Mechanics has a permanent staff of 41, including 18 research associates and scientific assistants as well as 22 employees and apprentices in the administrative division, laboratories, construction office, and electrical and mechanical workshops. In addition, approximately 80 student assistants are engaged to help with teaching and research.
In August 2013, Bernd Markert was appointed full professor at RWTH Aachen University and Director of the Institute of General Mechanics in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. His present research focuses on the theory and numerics of general coupled problems, computational and experimental biomechanics and structural mechanics, as well as extended continuum methods, such as phase-field models.
The research at IAM pursues the idea of a holistic approach by combining the expertise in Theoretical, Numerical and Experimental Mechanics in the sense of "Everything from a single source.“ As the name of the institute suggests, the addressed research topics are manifold ranging from modeling super-alloy turbine blades over lifetime assessment of high-speed train components to simulating and experimental testing of degenerated human knee joints using bioreactors and a micro-CT scanner.
The RWTH School of Business and Economics also contributes three management modules during the first two semesters. "Entrepreneurial Strategy" and "Innovation Management" are taught by highly reputed professors from the School of Business and Economics. The courses of this AACSB Accreditation awarded faculty are conducted by Professor Brettel and Professor Piller. Prof. Dr. rer. pol. Brettel is Professor for Business Administration and Entrepreneurship at RWTH Aachen University and has extensive practical experience as a consultant, both for his start-up firms and for established companies like Porsche AG and Deutsche Post AG. Prof. Dr. rer. pol. Piller is head of the Technology and Innovation Management Group at RWTH Aachen University. He has worked at the MIT Sloan School of Management and furthermore as a consultant and delivered executive workshops for many international companies, including several DAX30 and Fortune 500 corporations.
