Robotic technology and cyber-physical systems can be applied in many different ways, such as industrial machines, automobiles, (micro)-electric industries, as well as aerospace and air transport industries. The design of robotic systems deals with various preception principles that enable the systems to recognize and analyze their environment, adapt to it and take appropriate actions to accomplish the given tasks. M.Sc. Robotic Systems Engineering (M.Sc. RoboSys) is tailored for robotic specialists and provides an outstanding education in the fields of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer sciences.

You can also be a part of our group of highly motivated students who are widely engaged in extracurricular activities. Our Carologistics student team, for example, is the current world champion in the RoboCup Logistics League (RCLL) for the fourth time in a row.
M.Sc. RoboSys comprises three semesters of lectures, exercises and practical courses in mechanical engineering at RWTH Aachen University. In the fourth semester, you will choose either the industrial track, in which you will pursue an internship in industry or the academic track to carry out a research project. You also have to finish your Master's thesis in this final semester.
By awarding the RWTH Aachen Master's Degree, the program gives its graduates a degree that is recognized worldwide and qualifies you for doctoral studies.
Graduates with the skills to understand both the art of management and complex engineering processes are increasingly sought after in today's industrial world. The Master of Science in Management and Engineering in Production Systems is a unique program conducted as a cooperation between two European high level universities well-reputed in their specific fields. The German RWTH Aachen University holds one of the best faculties of mechanical engineering in the world and conducts the program’s engineering part. The Dutch Maastricht School of Management (MSM) has a worldwide reputation for its programs in business and management teaching.

The programme Master of Science in Management and Engineering in Production Systems combines the wide range of applied science, engineering and management disciplines represented in production systems.
The use of digitally networked systems is increasing in every industry. The developments currently unfolding under the buzzword "Industry 4.0" are essentially based on the comprehensive digital representation of every step in the industrial production value chain. From the planning phase through to the design/draft and production process to monitoring products over their service-life, virtual product and process models are networked with each other to expedite development processes, raise product quality, and optimise production. That is why these developments require well-trained specialists at the interface of computer science and engineering. This course of study, which was jointly developed by participants from the professorships of Engineering and Computer Science and Media at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, is designed to provide you flexible and interdisciplinary training to meet the challenges you’ll face in the professional world of tomorrow. The Digital Engineering Master's programme places a high premium on introducing you to current research issues that are jointly defined and supervised by industry partners at an early state. The Digital Bauhaus Lab is a state-of-the-art university research facility offering optimal conditions for success.
The consecutive Digital Engineering Master's programme combines academically specialised expertise from the Civil Engineering and Computer Science and Media disciplines. The coursework is centred on a practical transfer of methodical interrelations between engineering and computer science for complete digitalisation of design, manufacturing, and application processes. In this international Master's programme you will use a range of modelling concepts as a basis for experimentation with complex processes in computer-aided modelling, simulation and visualisation of engineering problems. In addition, you will deepen your knowledge of information-theory methods of data generation and data handling. The aim is the representation, interpretation, evaluation, and optimisation of interdisciplinary processes in construction, mechanical engineering and other industrial fields.
This prepares graduates of the English-language Digital Engineering Master's programme in a targeted way for work in the field of virtual product and process modelling and optimisation. They are active in a diverse range of fields such as technical administration, model management, engineering analysis and consulting, technical data analysis, as well as software and product development for digital networking in industry.
The Master's programme in Digital Engineering comprises 120 ECTS and is completed after four semesters of study. In the first two semesters, all students receive foundational courses in order to prepare them to participate in more advanced courses. You will be offered both compulsory and elective courses covering the two core areas of computer science and engineering. Depending on your previous knowledge, we will develop your individual module plan with an emphasis on either engineering or computer science.
From the third semester onward, you will deepen your technical knowledge in the three areas of modelling, simulation and validation, and visualization and data science. In each of these areas, you will have the opportunity to choose elective courses that allow you to create your own specialisation. The curriculum is complemented by a research project with partners from the professional community, as well as elective modules in the Media and Civil Engineering faculties or the Language Centre of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. During the fourth semester, you will write and defend your Master's thesis. In the process, you will receive support from professors and external industry partners, who will support you in the context of consultations.
The English-taught program Master of Science in Production Systems Engineering builds upon its students' existing qualifications and extends their knowledge in the fields of materials, manufacturing processes, process and product engineering, manufacturing system design, manufacturing competitiveness, and management. Skills, such as leading and working in project teams and effective communication, will be strengthened. Thanks to extensive laboratory experience, graduates are enabled to perform fundamental or applied research, to identify vital work steps, and to communicate the results of their research. The master's degree awarded by the RWTH Aachen University is globally recognised and qualifies graduates for consecutive PhD studies.
