Erasmus Mundus Computational Mechanics

Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study at Swansea University - 'Welsh University of the Year 2017' (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017). This is a two-year postgraduate programme run by an international consortium of five world leading Universities, namely Swansea University, Universitat Polite`cnica de Catalunya (Spain), E´cole Centrale de Nantes (France), University of Stuttgart (Germany) and Tsinghua University (China) in cooperation with the International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE, Spain). You will have a choice of specialisation (i.e. fluids, structures, aerospace, biomedical) by incorporating modules from the five Universities, and will gain a general knowledge of the theory of computational mechanics, including the strengths and weaknesses of the approach. You will also be able to undertake a computational simulation in an industrial context, and be provided with training in the development of new software for the improved simulation of current engineering problems. The Erasmus Mundus course is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM).

Course modules

Modules typically include: numerical methods for partial differential equations; finite element computational analysis; continuum mechanics; computational fluid dynamics; fluid-structure interaction; advanced fluid mechanics; dynamics and transient analysis; computational plasticity; nonlinear continuum mechanics; entrepreneurship for engineers; reservoir modelling and simulation; communication skills in a foreign language (French/German/Spanish).
