Computational Engineering

... looks into questions such as ...

  • Why are numerical mathematics and computer-aided simulations as well as precise understanding of materials necessary in order to fly into space?
  • Which role do computer-aided simulations play in the development and optimisation of cars, airplanes and machined tools that are utilised in the fields of medicine, environmental protection, building design and alternative energy generation?
  • How do computer-aided simulations help me to save time and money in the fields listed above?
  • How do I gain the necessary understanding of mathematical, engineering and computer-related basic principles in an efficient manner?
  • What does the Finite Element Method describe and which role does it play in the field of engineering simulations?
  • How do I build up a foundation for an internationally successful engineering career whilst studying in a highly-qualified, English-language and multi-cultural environment?
