Months of entry
Using mathematical modelling as the basis, computational methods provide procedures which, with the aid of the computer, allow complex problems to be solved. The techniques play an ever-increasing role in industry and there is further emphasis to apply the methodology to other important areas such as medicine and the life sciences.
The Zienkiewicz Centre for Computational Engineering, within which this course is run, has excellent computing facilities, including a state-of-the-art multi-processor super computer with virtual reality facilities and high-speed networking.
This course is suitable for those who are interested in gaining a solid understanding of computer modelling, specialising in either structures or fluids, and taking the skills gained through this course to develop their career in industry or research.
Modules on the course can vary each year but you could expect to study:
- Finite Element and Computational Analysis
- Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations
- Solid Mechanics
- Advanced Fluid Mechanics
- Dynamics and Transient Analysis
- Communication Skills for Research Engineers
- MRes Research Project
