Description

The Master of Science in Computational Mechanics is designed for students who wish to develop their knowledge and competency in the field of computational mechanics with applications in solids, fluids and interdisciplinary fields. The programme also includes a component of entrepreneurship and innovation. The goal is to provide the students with the skills for the modelling, formulation, analysis and implementation of simulation tools for advanced engineering problems, as well as skills for understanding these approaches in the broader context of business and innovation. Students will benefit from a leading group of academics and an exciting international environment. Students may take the Master's as a professional terminal degree, or in preparation for a Ph.D. degree.

What I would highlight: I've been awarded the SNF grant by the Swiss National Science Foundation to pursue his Doctoral Studies at ETH Zurich, often rated as the best technological university in continental Europe (with 21 Nobel Prize winners in it’s alumni, Albert Einstein being the most prominent of them). I've worked with several respectable researchers who are employed with ETH Zurich, Paul Scherrer Institut, Stanford University and University of Stuttgart during his Doctoral and Master’s research.

SELECT - Environomical Pathways for Sustainable Energy Systems

What I would highlight: I am an islander from Jamaica. I am quite interested in sustainability, not only on an environmental point of view but also in terms of the business aspects such economic, social and environmental impacts involved in establishing companies. Aside from this I enjoy the dynamic experience of meeting different people and travelling which SELECT has definitely given me the opportunity to do. For the most part my expectations were met; however, there were some courses which were a bit basic and quite general. Additionally, I would have preferred if there were more courses that we could have done with other students who were studying similar courses instead of having a few of the tailored courses at KTH.

SAMHC - Advanced Masters in Structural Analysis of Monuments and Historical Constructions

5.0 01/09/2012
What I would highlight: When I graduated (one year ago), I felt I still had a lot of things to learn and see, and that if I could find a way to go abroad and continue my studies, it was the right moment to do it. The chance given to me by this master is priceless: I'm living in an incredible city, Barcelona, learning so many new things from very professional teachers and from my classmates coming from all around the world. The topic of the master has always attracted me and finally I feel I am building for myself a solid technical base that I was still lacking as an architect. At the same time, the encounter with people from other countries that have so different ways of life and ideas is opening up my mind and allowing me to see things in a different and new way.

MERIT - Master of Science in Research on Information and Communication Technologies

Diego Masone
5.0 01/09/2010
What I would highlight: I wanted to develop my interests in the research field, and that is something one can only do when studying abroad with a scholarship. I could visit some cities of Italy and see a lot of beautiful places. I was also able to visit other countries of the European Union, like England, France, Spain and Belgium. These trips really opened my mind and made me think a lot.

What I would highlight: I received a full scholarship to participate in a 2 year, Erasmus Mundus Master of Science in Flood Risk Management. During the course I studied in four universities across Europe specialising in several different areas of flooding such as hydro-science and engineering, hydroinformatics, coastal engineering, spatial planning and the socio-economic risks involved with flood disasters.

Course programme

The scheme consists of two parts: Part I (first and second semesters) provides basic background in computational mechanics as well as a practical training component. Part II (third and fourth semesters) includes a series of specialised modules into a particular field of computational mechanics and a research/dissertation component.

The first semester is taught simultaneously in UPC/CIMNE and Swansea University. Students study commonly agreed core modules, totaling 20 ECTS, which are examined under common regulatory procedures. In addition, students study 10 ECTS in transversal modules, namely a course in “communication skills in a foreign language” and a course in “entrepreneurship for engineers”. Students must accumulate 30 ECTS by passing each module at 50 or above to progress.

Students continue in UPC/CIMNE or Swansea University for their second semester, where they must accumulate new 30 ECTS. Students study 15 ECTS in elective modules in computational mechanics to deepen the knowledge acquired during the first semester. Students must also accumulate 15 ECTS in a “practical training” module which they will develop within an industrially oriented environment. Students must accumulate 30 ECTS by passing each module at 50 or above to progressThe third and fourth semesters are taught at a second designated institution from within the Consortium (from a choice of UPC/CIMNE, SU, US and ECN). Students must accumulate 60 ECTS (25 ECTS of which should be in specialised subject areas) and 5 ECTS will be in the form of a transversal module. The final 30 ECTS consists of a Masters dissertation thesis into a cutting-edge research topic within computational mechanics.
