Computer-assisted modeling, analysis, and simulation of physical and technical systems in engineering is called Computational Engineering. In the recent past, computer simulation has taken root – besides the classical methods of theory and experiment – as the third way of gathering scientific knowledge.

The Computational Engineering (CE) programme at the TU Darmstadt is interdisciplinary in its approach. It represents the cooperation of the departments and study fields of Mathematics, Mechanics, Civil Engineering and Geodesy, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, and Computer Science.

In the first four semesters, the students first acquire the fundamentals of Mathematics, Computer Science, and Engineering involved in this field of study. In view of the concluding year of study, meaning semesters five and six, the students choose one of the following five majors in the course of their fourth semester:

  • Applied Mathematics and Mechanics
  • Civil Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • Electrical Engineering and Information Technology

In line with the respective major, it is mandatory that the students attend a preparatory fundamental course in their fourth semester. The contents of the internship to be completed in the area of focus and the concluding Bachelor’s Thesis are dependent on the chosen major, as well.
