The MSc Computational Engineering benefits from the position of Swansea University at the forefront of international research in computational engineering.This course harnesses the expertise of academic staff to provide you with world class postgraduate training. You will gain a practical understanding of computer modelling, and how it plays a critical role in engineering, science and emerging areas of interdisciplinary research.

Over the course you will use mathematical modelling and computational methods to solve complex problems.

You will learn techniques that play an increasingly instrumental role in industry and understand how methodology can be applied to fields such as medicine and the life sciences.

Your studies will be based at the Zienkiewicz Centre for Computational Engineering, which has excellent computing facilities including a state-of-the-art multi-processor supercomputer, with virtual reality facilities and high-speed networking.

Our diverse international community of over 500 postgraduate students and 120 research staff at the College of Engineering will help to shape your work.

Academic requirements

GPA admission requirements GPA Your GPA, or Grade Point Average, is a number that indicates how well or how high you scored in your courses on average. Usually a GPA scales between 1.0 and 4.0, however different countries and universities can have different grading systems.
Upper Second Class

English requirements

IELTS admission requirements IELTS The International English Language Test System (IELTS) tests your English-language proficiency on a scale of 1 – 9. The score refers to the combined average score of 4 subjects (writing, listening, speaking, and reading).

Other requirements

General requirements

Candidates will need to supply a personal statement addressing the following 2 questions:

  •  Question 1: What can I bring to the industrial placement?
  •  Question 2: What do I hope to gain from the industrial experience?

Usually the entry requirements for the MSc Computer Modelling and Finite Elements in Engineering Mechanics with Industry course is a 2:1 honours degree (or above) in Engineering, Mathematics, or similar relevant science discipline. You will also need to have an overall mark of at least 55%, however performance in key modules will also be considered.
