Program description

Computer Aided Conception and Production in Mechanical Engineering at RWTH 

At RWTH Aachen University, students will be exposed to the most advanced techniques in the field of mechanical engineering, presented by internationally known specialists, in an environment focusing on your intellectual, professional and personal advancement.

Profound skills in computer-aided methods are of growing importance for every engineer in all fields of professional activity. The MSc in Computer Aided Conception and Production in Mechanical Engineering (CAME) at the RWTH Aachen University addresses specifically the purposes of the practicing mechanical engineer.

Students may choose between two specializations - one design-oriented and one production-oriented - to fit your personal interest best. Students choose to pursue either the "Conception of Machines" or the "Production of Machines" specialization. Both specializations consist of lectures and practice elements, such as exercises and laboratory sessions, during which students are exposed to the most advanced techniques in the field.

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 Master of Science degree from the RWTH Aachen University.

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.
In awarding the RWTH Aachen University Master's Degree, the program gives its graduates a degree that is recognized world-wide and qualifies for further PhD studies.

Career opportunities

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.

Careers will be found in traditional manufacturing companies, such as in the mobility and energy sector, in logistics and distribution firms, in construction or financial institutions, in food, health care or medical establishments. 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.
