About

The Master's Degree Program Continuum Mechanics - Fundamentals and Applications Continuum Mechanics - Fundamentals and Applications offered by Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU) Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU) is aimed to prepare masters, who are able to formulate and solve a wide range of problems arising in various fields of continuum mechanics – both of mechanics of solids and fluids, with focus on interdisciplinarity, in strong connection with engineering applications in hi-tech and advanced manufacturing technologies – in the spirit of the STEM Education concept aimed at obtaining 21st century skills in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Key Points

  • Deep learning of basic subjects of continuum mechanics supplemented by development of mathematical background.
  • Interdisciplinarity, which is a current trend in mechanics, and the program topics include phase transformations, mechanochemistry, biological systems etc.
  • The graduates will obtain the skills and develop critical thinking which are necessary to do both fundamental and applied research, using theoretical and computational mechanics of solids, gas and fluids in one pack, and, thus, beneficial for prospective international career in research institutes, centers and laboratories or employment at R&D and engineering departments of oil and gas, car-making, power and engineering and etc.
  • Mentoring and scientific guidance from prominent professors of the Institute of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics of St. Petersburg Polytechnic University and recognized scientists from the Institute for Problems in Mechanical Engineering of Russian Academy of Science and invited professors from top world universities.
  • Broad international contacts, which we are eager to share with our students for their future career;
  • Cross-cultural studies and extracurricular activities at SPbPU.
  • Unique opportunities for international academic mobility: a semester abroad at one of SPbPU partner universities.

Career opportunities

Our graduates will obtain the skills and develop critical thinking which are necessary to do both fundamental and applied research, using theoretical and computational mechanics of solids, gas and fluids in one pack, and, thus, beneficial for prospective international academic career or career in R&D departments of the aerospace, automotive, mechanical engineering power industries.
