Swansea University's Civil & Computational Engineering Centre has been at the forefront of international research in the area of computational engineering for the last 30 years. Engineers at Swansea have pioneered the development of numerical techniques, such as the finite element method, and associated computational procedures that have enabled the solution of many complex engineering problems. Originally, the activities in this field were led by the academic staff of the Civil Engineering Department, which has consistently achieved the highest rating in all the Research Assessment Exercises (RAE) carried out to date. The Centre offers a new 18 month MSc in Computational Mechanics in collaboration with other leading European research centres at CIMNE-Universitat Politecnica Catalunya (Barcelona, Spain), Stuttgart University (Germany) and Ecole Central de Nantes (France). The course 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. Students will acquire 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 engineering science. 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. The aim of this course is to provide a multidisciplinary in-depth training in the application of the finite element method and related numerical and computational techniques to the solution of problems in engineering analysis and design and simulation of current engineering problems. It will provide students with a wide choice of specialisation areas by incorporating modules from the four Universities and, in this way, allowing them to experience postgraduate education in more than one European institution. Students following this course will take their first semester in either Swansea or Barcelona, where they will follow an agreed common set of core modules leading to common examinations. Students will move to one of the other Universities, depending upon their preferred specialisation, to complete their second semester of taught modules and their research thesis. SCHOLARSHIPS FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS: Erasmus Mundus Scholarships are available to highly-qualified non-European students with outstanding academic records. These scholarships are awarded by the European Commission. Scholarships will be awarded for the two years of the masters. In each of these years, the student will receive a total of 21.000 Euro (totalling 42.000 Euro over the two years). Tuition fees are 8.000 Euro per year and will be deducted from the scholarship.
