Master of Science; tuition language: German
The interdisciplinary degree programme Master of Science in Computational Engineering (CE) deals with the modelling and simulation of technical and physical systems. Courses in mathematics, mechanics, civil engineering and geodesy, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and information technology, and computer science in the field of computational engineering sciences will also be included in the programme. A comprehensive selection of elective courses in each area as well as a specialisation in a specific applied subject allow the incorporation of individual student interests. A mentoring system supports each student during this process. It is also possible to spend a semester abroad studying or working towards the Master’s thesis.

Computational Engineers are employed in areas dealing with the development and investigation of complex technical and natural science systems. Graduates in this area are very much in demand in industry, as well as in research positions at universities or research institutes. The interdisciplinary nature of the programme gives graduates a wide range of potential career options. Some of these options include; the automotive industry (e.g. in crash behaviour simulations or aggregate development), in process technology (e.g. in issues of environmental sustainability or energy consumption of production facilities), in electrical engineering (e.g. in design of electronic equipment or in issues of electromagnetic compatibility), in civil engineering (e.g. strength calculation or fire safety issues) or in computer science (e.g. development of brain-computer interfaces, modelling of learning processes and automatic modelling of intelligence in robotics).
