Engineering & Management at RWTH Aachen University
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.
