M.Sc. Management and Engineering in Electrical Power Systems

Nationals of the European Union and "Bildungsinländer" can now apply until July 15, 2018. Apply here for the Winter Semester 2018/19! Find our step-by-step guide for your application at RWTH Aachen University here.

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'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.

Our engineering graduates...

  • work at companies such as Anvis, BASF, Continental, Fiat, Ford, Kautex, Liebherr, Rolls Royce, Toyota and Volkswagen
  • are very successful on the job market: half of our graduates find employment within a month of graduating and two thirds within three months
  • increase their salary by more than 50% (about 40 %)
