This section is intended to provide interested applicants and enrolled master students with important information about the course structure.
Suggested Curriculum 2020
Track: Modelling and Simulation Engineering
Track: Digital Engineering
The mechanical engineering part focuses on the development and application of computer-aided methods and systems at all stages of product development. It provides in-depth knowledge and understanding of finite element methods, numerical methods, simulation, mechanics, software engineering, and production management.
During the management training, students are trained to solve problems related to global transformation and sustainable competitiveness, organization development, and international project management. In order to strengthen the foundation of students' management knowledge, the RWTH School of Business and Economics contributes three management modules during the first year of studies.
The final master's thesis is an independent, pre-defined scientific project to be completed in a fixed period of six months. The master's thesis is generally concluded by an oral presentation.
To achieve the Master of Science in Management and Engineering in Computer Aided Mechanical Engineering, students have to complete the following course credits:
- Compulsory Courses - Engineering (38 ECTS)
- Elective Courses - Engineering (10 ECTS)
- Compulsory Courses - Management (45 ECTS)
- German Language Course (2 ECTS)
- Master Thesis and Master Defence Colloquium (25 ECTS)
The M.Sc. MME-CAME is an interdisciplinary industrial engineering program, providing, on the one hand, in-depth knowledge and understanding of finite element methods, numerical methods, simulation, mechanics and software engineering, and on the other hand, solid knowledge of the core management processes and an understanding of the major social and environmental issues that set the scene for international business operations in emerging economies. Current research directly influences the curriculum, ensuring that students are constantly exposed to the most up-to-date information and practices.
Industrial engineers are employed in a wide range of fields: whether in traditional manufacturing companies or in consulting firms, in financial institutions or in the food industry, in logistics companies or health care establishments – their flexibility enables industrial engineers to choose from a large variety of different professional areas to work in.
Graduates of this master's degree program will have gained the skill set and competences to work at the interface of technology and business administration. In today's industrial world, they will build the bridge between management goals and operational performance. For graduates looking into a future in academia, the M.Sc. MME-CAME also qualifies for PhD studies and a further career path at universities. The Master of Science degree certificate is awarded by RWTH Aachen University.
