Computational Mechanics of Materials and Structures is concerned with the simulation of advanced engineering problems using modelling techniques, computer implementation, experimental verification and case study investigation. This Master of Science Programme provides the basis of high tech engineering design for a broad spectrum of applications.
This dramatically expanding area of science induces a large number of research activities and is accompanied by strong international cooperations.
Graduates of this unique Master Programme will be qualified to find employment in a wide range of professions, e.g. as research and development engineer or technical advising manager in industry, at laboratories or universities.
The entire Master Programme can be studied in English and takes one and a half years (three semesters) including a one-semester thesis. COMMAS has been designed to be a very compact graduate programme. It attracts also people who already have finished other studies to gain expertise in the promising field of Computational Mechanics of Materials and Structures.
The Master of Science Programme has a duration of three semesters. During the first semester, all students take the same modules and courses and concentrate on the basics of mechanics, statics and dynamics, numerical methods, discretization methods and software engineering.
All courses not only provide an extensive introduction but also a deep knowledge of the most important areas in the field of Computational Mechanics of Materials and Structures.
During the second semester, topics can be chosen from a large variety of courses. In order to establish an international interaction further advanced topics are given in the summer school by internationally recognized experts.
The third semester is dedicated to the thesis. It is embedded into current scientific activities of the participating research groups.
The technical/ scientific requirements for international students are:
a school certificate authorizing the holder to enter a university or an authorization regarded as equivalent by the Board of Examination of COMMAS and
a Bachelor Degree in Engineering or Natural Science or a related field, or
a "Diplom" degree (U, FH, BA), or
a "Vordiplom" and examinations in additional core courses.
have to take the GRE test.
Non-native speakers of English
TOEFL score of at least 213 points in the computer-based test as proof of sufficient knowledge of the English language. The IELTS (Overall Band Scale 6.5) or the APIEL test (3.0 Points) are considered to be equivalent.
