M.Sc. COMMAS (COmputational Mechanics of MAterials and Structures)

University of Stuttgart | Stuttgart, Germany
Computational Mechanics of Materials and Structures is concerned with the simulation of advanced engineering problems using modelling, computer implementation, experimental verification and case study investigation. This Master of Science program provides the basis of hightech engineering designed for a broad spectrum of applications.

Description of COMMAS (COmputational Mechanics of MAterials and Structures)


One of the unique characteristics of this degree program is close interdisciplinary cooperation between the faculties of Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and the Engineering Cybernetics as well as local laboratories and industry. The program is especially designed for students who are interested in the theoretical and numerical modelling of materials and structures. The scientific field of Computational Mechanics of Materials and Structures is characterized by a comprehensive treatment and interaction of mechanical problems and numerical methods. The underlying concept is a coupling of theoretical modelling, numerical implementation, experimental verification and computer simulation. This dramatically expanding area of science induces a large number of research activities and is accompanied by strong international cooperations. The entire COMMAS program can be studied in English.
