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.
The program consists of two semesters of lectures, exercises, and practical courses in Electrical Power Systems Engineering at RWTH Aachen University in combination with an eighteen-week Management training program at Maastricht School of Management. During this Management program, you are trained in small groups to solve problems related to global transformation, sustainable competitivity and organization development. All of these courses are taught at Maastricht School of Management in Maastricht in the Netherlands. The final Master's thesis is an independent project and must be completed within a fixed period of six months. The Master's thesis is generally concluded with a defense in the form of an oral presentation.
M.Sc. MME-EPS is a joint program, run by both RWTH Aachen in Germany and Maastricht School of Management in the Netherlands.
The engineering part of the program will be run by RWTH Aachen's Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology. This faculty sees its foremost mission in training highly qualified and responsible engineers in the broad field of Electrical Engineering, Information Technology and Computer Engineering for future leading positions in industry and society. The faculty has an excellent reputation for its teaching and research in these areas; nationally as well as internationally. The Faculty's excellence also stems from the close links between teaching and research in its courses. Thanks to this concept, there is an ideal balance between a fundamental scientific approach and important industrial applications. In addition, the Faculty benefits from close cooperations within RWTH Aachen University, the Jülich-Aachen-Research Alliance (JARA), as well as associated institutes and external research partners.
Highly acclaimed professors from the School of Business and Economics will run the training course in Strategy and Innovation Management. The courses of this AACSB-accredited faculty will be taught by Professor Brettel and Professor Piller. Prof. Dr. rer. pol. Brettel is a Professor of Business Administration and Entrepreneurship at RWTH Aachen and has extensive practical experience as a consultant, both for his start-up businesses 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. He has worked at MIT Sloan School of Management and as a consultant. Prof. Dr. rer. pol. Piller has also run executive workshops for many international companies, including several DAX30 and Fortune 500 corporations.
Maastricht School of Management covers the business-related component of this program. You will be trained up as a globally-oriented manager with solid knowledge of the core management processes and with understanding of the major social and environmental issues that set the scene for business processes in emerging economies. Throughout the program, you will be challenged to explore feasible innovations that balance business and development perspectives.
"Located in the heart of Europe, within easy access of Amsterdam, Brussels, Cologne, Frankfurt, London and Paris, Maastricht School of Management (MSM) is one of the oldest and most international business schools in the Netherlands. Located in Europe, but an established global player, we know how much good management matters for success. We know how important it is to make internationally accredited management education accessible. Our programs are offered around the world, from Cairo to Lima to Nanjing, and elsewhere. Forging the established with the new and the north with the south, our distinct approach to business equips our students and clients to flourish in a world where rapid change and the importance of knowledge are the only two givens. We believe our graduates learn more about themselves, as they learn about the world at MSM. Ultimately this is what will give them and their organizations the edge in life and business."
