Course content

The Erasmus Mundus MSc Computational Mechanics course is a two-year postgraduate programme run by an international consortium of four leading European Universities, namely Swansea University, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Spain), École Centrale de Nantes (France) and University of Stuttgart (Germany) in cooperation with the International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE, Spain).

Swansea University has gained a significant international profile as one of the key international centres for research and training in computational mechanics and engineering. As a student on the Master's course in Erasmus Mundus Computational Mechanics, you will be provided with in-depth, multidisciplinary training in the application of the finite element method and related state-of-the-art numerical and computational techniques to the solution and simulation of highly challenging problems in engineering analysis and design.The Erasmus Mundus course is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM).

Modules on the Erasmus Mundus MSc Computational Mechanics course can vary each year but you could expect to study the following core modules (together with elective modules):

Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations
Finite Element Method
Continuum Mechanics
Computational Solid Mechanics
Finite Element in Fluids
Computational Structural Mechanics and Dynamics
Computational Wave Propagation
Extended Finite Element Method and Level Set Techniques
Multi-Scale Structural Analysis
Materials Modelling for Numerical Simulations
Numerical Techniques for Partial Differential Equations in Fluids
Research Project Plan
MSc Thesis
Practical Training
