Take your engineering skills to the next level

The M.Sc. MME-CAME is specifically designed to provide business management and technical skills to young engineering professionals. As an interdisciplinary Master's degree program, it combines sound knowledge of key engineering fundamentals such as the finite element method, numerical methods, simulation, mechanics and software engineering with solid knowledge of essential management processes in marketing, accounting, human resource and international business. Our Management and Engineering degree program will enable you to manage and adapt to business changes with innovative problem-solving skills and prepare you to move into advanced engineering positions as well as business leadership roles.

As an M.Sc. MME-CAME student, you will learn to

  • develop and apply computer-aided modeling and simulation techniques in advanced manufacturing processes
  • design and control increasingly digitally networked production systems
  • deploy methods of data analysis for life cycle predictions and assessments of materials
  • cultivate system-analytical thinking in quality management tasks
  • connect technological questions with a business perspective through financial, human resource and strategic management skills

The MME-CAME program is under the academic direction of the Institute of General Mechanics (IAM), one of the oldest institutes at RWTH Aachen University. Whereas RWTH School of Business and Economics at RWTH Aachen University contributes the management modules. This unique combination enables current research results from both institutions to be directly incorporated into the curriculum to familiarize you with the latest advancement in technology and industrial practices.

Your studies – your choice: Choose a study track

To equip you with the specialization you need for your individual career path, we offer two study tracks in the M.Sc. MME-CAME:

Modelling and Simulation Engineering (MSE)

In MSE you will specialize in the areas of

  • computer-aided modeling and simulation technology
  • computer-aided design
  • computer-aided production in mechanical engineering, design of manufacturing processes, life cycle prediction of materials, parts and components

Learn more about the MSE Track

Digital Engineering (DE)

In DE you will focus on

  • the technical application fields of networked production
  • manage and design an integrated production chain
  • concepts and application of IIoT, physical systems (digital twin), smart factory, smart production processes and smart business processes

Learn more about the DE Track

Get an idea of the program

You will complete four compulsory modules in engineering in the 1st semester and six compulsory modules in management during the 2nd and 3rd semester.  With the start of the 2nd semester, you will then focus on your specific study track and can deepen your knowledge through a wide range of electives.
