The master’s degree in Numerical Methods in Engineering provides multidisciplinary training in computational mechanics in view of the growing demand for accurate and reliable numerical simulations. It aims to produce specialists in the theory and applications of calculation methods for product and process design, in the widest possible sense. Graduates will immediately be able to apply the knowledge acquired in industry. Their solid scientific training will also enable them to pursue a doctoral degree.
The course addresses real educational needs in Europe and worldwide. Computational mechanics is set to become even more multidisciplinary than in the past, and it is expected that in the coming decade the demand for accurate and reliable numerical simulation of engineering systems will undergo explosive growth and have a major impact on our everyday lives. Graduates of this master's degree course will be experts in numerical methods in engineering. They will be professionals able to put into practice the acquired knowledge directly to industry and they will also have the necessary scientific background to apply for a PhD position successfully.
On finishing the master's degree, graduates will be able to:
Generic competencies are the skills that graduates acquire regardless of the specific course or field of study. The generic competencies established by the UPC are capacity for innovation and entrepreneurship, sustainability and social commitment, knowledge of a foreign language (preferably English), teamwork and proper use of information resources.Specific skills
