Objectives of the Master's program

The objectives of the Master's program are teaching engineers the basic and specialized theory of the Finite Element Method (F.E.M.) using commercial grade Computer Aided Engineering technologies and the immediate transfer of this skillset to professional practical application on the job.

In short, the program's five main objectives are listed below


Solid foundation of FEM

The Expert Module provides a solid foundation of FEM that can be further developed with various Specialized Modules.


Use of commercial software

Develop hands-on experience of commercial grade software including ANSYS Mechanical, CivilFEM for ANSYS (Mechanical APDL), ANSYS CFX, ANSYS SpaceClaim, ANSYS Maxwell and ANSYS ACP (depending on which modules you take).


Practice examples

Practice examples that provide a real useful experience in the workplace.


Robust study material

Different texts and proposed exercises provide for a robust study material.


Modular & Adaptable Program

A combination of mandatory and optional modules so that students can adapt the training to their personal interests. To this end, the program offers three different levels awarding three different degrees: Expert, Specialist and Master's
