Program Description

Profound skills in computer-aided methods are of growing importance for every engineer in all fields of professional activity. Therefore, the M.Sc. Computer Aided Conception and Production in Mechanical Engineering (M.Sc. CAME) addresses specifically the purposes of the practicing mechanical engineer.

Within one program students can choose between two specialization tracks to fit their personal interest best: "Conception of Machines" or "Production of Machines". Both tracks are built upon common core courses and a range of electives that allows students to specialize in their field of research in more depth. In addition, an industrial internship and a research project work (mini thesis) are an integral part of each study track.

The master thesis concludes the four-semester study program to be awarded the M.Sc. degree from the RWTH Aachen University.

 

Degree Content

The M.Sc. CAME offers two study tracks from which students choose one to follow during their studies. The option “Conception of Machines" prepares students to develop and apply modern computer-aided methods focused on the construction and dimensioning of structures and systems according to functional requirements. The core compulsory courses for this area of specialization include the fundamentals of structural mechanics, computational analysis, and computer-aided design. The option "Production of Machines", prepares students to develop and use computer-aided systems in modern industrial production, which includes manufacturing technology, production systems, and production management. Both tracks consist of lectures and practice elements such as exercises and laboratory sessions during which students will be exposed to the most advanced techniques in the field.

 

Prerequisites

A prerequisite for starting this course of studies is a first university degree with which the necessary background education can be proven as determined in the examination regulations. The examination board determines whether the applicant fulfills the entrance requirements.

 

Career Prospects

Graduates of the M.Sc. Computer Aided Conception and Production in Mechanical Engineering will be qualified to work in a multitude of professional areas in the industry, in research institutes or as engineering consultants: with their broad knowledge in manufacturing, automation, design, production, and management, CAE specialists are well equipped to perform interdisciplinary work and are ready to take leading positions in the industry.

In being awarded the RWTH Aachen University Master's Degree, graduates are also qualified for doctoral studies.

 

Examination Regulations

Subject Specific Exam Regulations regulate academic goals, the course of study layout, and exam procedures. The appendix to the regulations contains the description of the modules, from which the course of study is composed.

 

Faculty

The Master course of studies is offered by the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.

 

For Your Information

RWTH Aachen offers some of its courses of study in collaboration with other (private) institutions. They are not part of the courses of study under public law, and thus are not governed by legal guidelines, e.g. university placement allocation.  Some have tuition fees and require a period of professional experience.

Information about prerequisites, application processes, the university placement allocation process, and academic content is available from the host institution, to which you are applying.
