You will receive deep multidisciplinary training in the application of the finite element method, as well as state-of-the-art numerical and computational techniques to solve and simulate challenging problems.
Your general knowledge of computational mechanics theory will be developed alongside an appreciation of computational simulation in industry.
Training is also provided in the development of new software for the improved simulation of current engineering problems.
