Overview

Overview

The goal of this course of study of the RWTH Aachen Faculty of Mechanical Engineering is the broad training of mechanical engineers, who may be employed in all technical fields in the industry in research and development as well as in production and distribution.

The Master programs are scientific, research-oriented degree programs, aligned towards basic principles and methods. They enable students to be successful professionally successful over their entire career, because they are not restricted to learning current material, but also learn theoretical underlying fundamental concepts and methods, that last longer than current trends.

Building on the foundation of the automotive engineering specialization with the Bachelor in Transport Engineering, a Master course of study in Automotive Engineering and Transport is offered at RWTH Aachen, in order to further expand and advance engineering skills in the areas of mobility and transport. The high degree of networking between machines and facilities for the transportation of people and goods requires collaboration between automotive engineering (road and rail vehicles), energy industry, and electrical engineering. The transshipment of humans and goods to individual vehicles makes up the content of materials handling technology for the increasingly growing interconnection of transport carriers. Against this backdrop, students are offered a comprehensive, inter- and multidisciplinary education, that allows them to confidently work within this network later their later career.

Programme Structure

 

The three semester long course of study is broken down into two pieces. During the two semester examination period, students should complete all mandatory and elective modules. In the final and third semester, students independently work on a defined research topic and finish their Master thesis.

The necessary subject knowledge is taught in the following specializations:

  • Road Vehicle Engineering
  • Rail Vehicle Engineering
  • Material Handling Technology

Entry Requirement

 

  • First university degree, required qualifications according to the examination regulations
  • Proficiency in German

Career Prospects

After successfully completing the Master's program, it is possible for students to apply for doctoral studies at one of the chairs in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. A profession in any technical field and almost any branch and sector of industry both domestically and abroad is possible. Futhermore, graduates are able to successfully work in integrative and interdisciplinary topic areas.
