Swansea University

Erasmus Mundus Computational Mechanics

In the 1st year of the course, students will follow an agreed common set of core modules leading to common examinations in Swansea or Barcelona. In addition, an industrial placement will take place during this year, where students will have the opportunity to be exposed to the use of computational mechanics within an industrial context. For the 2nd year of the course, students will move to 1 of the other universities, depending upon preferred specialisations, to complete a series of taught modules and the research thesis. There will be a wide choice of specialisation areas (such as fluids, structures, aerospace, biomedical) by incorporating modules from the 4 Universities. This allows students to experience postgraduate education in more than one European institution.

Entry requirements

Normally a 1st or 2nd Class Honours degree in engineering, applied mathematics, physics or a similar relevant science discipline. English language requirement IELTS 6.5 (with a minimum of 5.5 in each component) or Swansea University recognised equivalent.
