The focus is in mechanical engineering problems, but the graduates also achieves a very good platform for work in other engineering disciplines. The Applied Mechanics programme is delivered by Chalmers University of Technology.
An important philosophy for the programme is to integrate modelling, algorithmic formulation, numerical implementation and validation of simulation results with experimental results, such as results from wind tunnel testing, experimental modal analysis (EMA) and material testing. A systematic view on education, research and innovation is empasised through collaboration with the industry.
A wide range of work opportunities can be listed both for students that follow any of the three specialized tracks and for those who wish to choose an individual profile.
Typically, employment opportunities can be found in research and development within industrial companies and research institutes or consulting firms. Other examples of careers are technical advisor in the private or public sector, and teaching in science and engineering at different levels.
The Applied Mechanics programme at the Chalmers University of Technology also provides a good foundation for continued studies towards a Ph.D. in applied mechanics and related areas.
- Mechanics of fluids
- Mechanics of solids
- Structural dynamics - model validation
- Fatigue and fracture
A suitable background for the Master students in Applied Mechanics is a Bachelors degree with Major in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Automation and Mechatronics Engineering, Chemical Engineering with Physics, Civil Engineering and Engineering Physics.
