Computational Engineering

Master of Science

Computational Engineering, M.Sc.

Description

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.

Special Features TU Darmstadt offers a Double Degree Programme at a partner university for this course.

While the Bachelor of Science focuses mainly on the fundamentals of the field, the Master of Science builds directly on this foundation by providing students with more depth and breadth scientifically and more insight into the field. In contrast to the Bachelor degree programme, the Master of Science enables and requires students to adopt their own major focus and to work towards their own independent academic, scientific research profile.

For these reasons it is recommended that students complete a Master of Science degree.

Upon successful completion of a Master of Science degree, there is the opportunity to begin working towards a Ph.D. either at the TU Darmstadt or at another national or international university: Ph.D. at TU Darmstadt

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).
