Erasmus Mundus master's degree in Computational Mechanics

The Erasmus Mundus master's degree 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 goal is to provide them with the skills needed for modelling, formulating, analysing and implementing simulation tools for advanced engineering problems, as well as skills for understanding these approaches in the broader context of engineering science. An entrepreneurial component complements these skills, providing students with tools for setting up successful businesses and enhancing their own employability.

This master’s degree has received the International Master’s Programme distinction (2013 call) awarded by the Government of Catalonia’s Agency for the Management of University and Research Grants (AGAUR).

This master’s degree is organised by an international consortium of five leading universities in cooperation with the International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE): Swansea University (UK), Ecole Centrale Nantes (France), Universität Stuttgart (Germany), Tsinghua University (China) and the UPC.
