About

The Computer Simulations for Science and Engineering programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology focuses on the multidisciplinary field of Computational Science and Engineering, an enabling technology for scientific discovery and engineering design. 

Overview

The master's programme in Computer Simulations for Science and Engineering (COSSE) is a programme within the multidisciplinary field of Computational Science and Engineering (CSE), which is an enabling technology for scientific discovery and engineering design. CSE involves mathematical modelling, numerical analysis, computer science, high-performance computing and visualisation. The remarkable development of large-scale computing in recent decades has turned CSE into the “third pillar” of science, complementing theory and experiment.

The Computer Simulations for Science and Engineering programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology is a two-year programme including compulsory mobility for the students. It is given jointly by KTH, the Technical University of Berlin in Germany and Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. Students will enter one of the universities and continue in their second year at one of the other universities. As a general rule, students will be admitted to TU Berlin for the first year.

The programme includes three semesters of courses followed by a fourth research semester spent on a master’s degree project under the supervision of both universities attended. The students receive two degrees from both the first and second year universities.

​​​​Career

As to career opportunities, a degree from the master's programme in Computer Simulations for Science and Engineering opens several opportunities:

  • to join the international research community by continuing PhD studies in the CSE and science/engineering fields where simulation and high-performance computing is applied: fluid dynamics, electromagnetics, molecular physics, quantum chemistry, material science, chemical engineering, structural mechanics, biocomputing, and many more.
  • to gain employment in “end-user” high-tech industry and “provider companies”, using and developing tools for advanced computer simulation in the pharmaceutical, automotive, materials, aeronautics, power generation, microelectronics, etc. industries.
  • to start new innovative companies which are based on CSE expertise.

The programme is highly research-oriented. So far, roughly two thirds of the graduates have continued with a PhD position at the consortium partners KTH, TU Berlin, and TU Delft as well as other leading international universities, for example, MIT (USA), Oxford University (UK), Purdue University (USA), Uppsala University (Sweden), ETH (Switzerland), Karolinska Institute (Sweden), University Melbourne (Australia), INRIA (France), Simon Fraser University (Canada), UPC Barcelona (Spain), NTU Singapore, and many others.
