About

The Computational Mechanics is organised between Swansea University and Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Barcelona, Spain) in cooperation with the International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE, Spain).

Overview

By taking the Computational Mechanics programme from Swansea University you will receive deep multidisciplinary training in the application of the finite element method, as well as state-of-the-art numerical and computational techniques to solve and simulate challenging problems.

Your general knowledge of computational mechanics theory will be developed alongside an appreciation of computational simulation in industry and academia.

Training is also provided in the development of new software for the improved simulation of current engineering problems.

You will follow a common set of core modules in your first year alongside a transversal language module, leading to examinations in the first university chosen (Swansea or Barcelona).

An industrial placement taken during year one exposes you to the use of computational mechanics within an industrial context.

In the second year you move to the second university, depending upon your preferred specialisation, completing a series of modules and the research thesis. A variety of specialisation areas are available including fluids, structures, waves, etc with multiple applications in civil, mechanical, aerospace and biomedical engineering.

Student insurance

Make sure to cover your health, travel, and stay while studying abroad. Even global coverages can miss important items, so make sure your student insurance ticks all the following:

  • Additional medical costs (i.e. dental)
  • Repatriation, if something happens to you or your family
  • Liability
  • Home contents and baggage
  • Accidents
  • Legal aid

We partnered with Aon to provide you with the best affordable student insurance, for a carefree experience away from home.
