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.


Master of Science program provides the basis of hightech engineering designed for a broad spectrum of applications. 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.


The quality of this study programme is tested in an accreditation process.Further information on study programmes with the quality seal of the Accreditation Council and central database.

Students seeking a scholarship should inquire and apply first at a local or international funding agency in their home country, e.g. the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Scholarships offered by the DAAD are normally awarded to students with a first degree. Application deadline is usually one year prior to the expected begin of studies and needs to be done in your home country. Check for information and application forms at the DAAD or the German consulate in your home country.

StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
