Course Introduction

The MSc in Computational Engineering provides all these skills. You would join with good knowledge in at least one of these three areas, you would deepen that understanding and you would gain the required knowledge in the other areas. You will be able to choose study modules that align with your background, your choice of specialisation area and your project topic. This programme will teach you advanced skills in computational modelling of structures and fluids. You will be introduced to programming and numerical algorithms, a particular strength of the course is its broad teaching of numerical optimisation, a topic of significant industrial interest. You will choose specialisation modules in one of Aerospace, Mechanical, Chemical or Energy engineering. A unique feature compared to other UK MSc programmes is the year-long project which counts for 50% of the course. Your project can use our high-performance computing clusters, where possible the topic will be defined in conjunction with an industrial co-supervisor.

The methods of assessment are coursework and formal examinations, which take place in May. Many courses will include continuous assessment so that some or all of the work you do during the course counts towards the final mark. A major part of the MSc is your research project which counts for 50% of this MSc. It is an individual project starting in Semester A, is conducted under close supervision throughout the year, and submitted in August. Embedded in the project module are taught components such as critical thinking, project management and report writing.
