The program's main objective is to offer methodological and problem-oriented education, related to research as well as practice. The program will cover advanced topics in the areas of engineering, science, and economics. The course modules particularly focus on high voltage engineering, electrical machines and battery storage systems used to automatize and manage complex power systems. You will be exposed to topics such as the physical problems of energy storage and power electronics. You will also learn to solve faults and stability problems in power systems, as well as use computational engineering tools to automatize and manage complex power systems.

Study at Two European Top Universities!

The course of study Master of Science Management and Engineering in Electrical Power Systems (MME-EPS) is an interdisciplinary program run by two European universities, both well-reputed in their specific fields. RWTH Aachen University's Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology runs the engineering part of the program, whilst the Dutch Maastricht School of Management covers the business and management part.
