Find our step-by-step guide for your application at RWTH Aachen University here.The English-taught program Master of Science in Production Systems Engineering builds upon its students' existing qualifications and extends their knowledge in the fields of materials, manufacturing processes, process and product engineering, manufacturing system design, manufacturing competitiveness, and management. Skills, such as leading and working in project teams and effective communication, will be strengthened. Thanks to extensive laboratory experience, graduates are enabled to perform fundamental or applied research, to identify vital work steps, and to communicate the results of their research. The master's degree awarded by the RWTH Aachen University is globally recognised and qualifies graduates for consecutive PhD studies.

The Engineering part of the programme will be conducted by the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the RWTH Aachen University. This faculty sees its foremost mission in training highly qualified and responsible engineers in the broad field of Mechanical Engineering, including Production Systems Engineering, for future leading positions in industry and society. Students will be trained by highly reputed professors to acquire further expertise and in-depth knowledge in the production sector.
The scientific leadership for the master's programme in Production Systems Engineering lies with the WZL – Laboratory for Machine Tools of RWTH Aachen University. For many decades now, the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering has enjoyed a worldwide reputation for successful and progressive research and innovation in the area of production engineering. Performed in eight different work areas, research activities do not only relate to fundamental theories and findings but also to the application of findings in an industrial context. Furthermore, practical solutions are developed to rationalise production.
The Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering is led by four professors: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christian Brecher, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Fritz Klocke, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Robert Schmitt and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Günther Schuh. The WZL is also part of the Cluster of Excellence- Integrative Production Technology for High-Wage Countries. In this Cluster of Excellence, more than 20 institutes for material and production technology cooperate at the RWTH Aachen University in conducting research on the fundamentals of a sustainable production strategy. The cluster's aim is to assure production in high-wage countries whilst also taking the dynamic framework of a world affected by globalisation into account.
