General Information about Computational Mechanics
Computational mechanics is a constantly growing field with impact on both science and industry in all areas of engineering. It is concerned with solving mechanical problems on the basis of numerical approximation methods, involving discretization of the underlying equations in both space and time.
Nowadays, related skills are indispensable in civil and mechanical engineering, for the design of automobiles and spacecrafts, for developments in biomechanics and micro-electro-mechanical systems. Virtually all technical disciplines make use of the fast progress in this area.
Computational mechanics brings together highly sophisticated methods of theoretical, applied and structural mechanics, as well as computer science, software engineering and applied mathematics. Being familiar with the scientific background of this fascinating field opens the door to employment in virtually all fields of engineering.
The curriculum of the course encompasses, among others,
* continuum mechanics, structural mechanics and theory of stability
* structural and fluid dynamics
* applied mathematics and functional analysis Image
* computer science, programming and software engineering
* linear and non-linear finite element methods
* structural and multidisciplinary optimization
* modelling and simulation
* networking, distributed and parallel computing
Computational modeling and simulation of physical processes as supplement to experimental methods are about to become an everyday tool, available at relatively low cost. The Master of Science in Computational Mechanics is your drivers license for up-to-date tools of modern engineers
