MSc Computational Mechanics

Course Overview

The International MSc in Computational Mechanics is a 2-year programme for students seeking to acquire the necessary skills for the modelling, formulation, analysis, and implementation of simulation tools for advanced engineering problems, as well as skills for understanding these approaches in the broader context of business and innovation.

This MSc exploits the complementary expertise of Swansea University and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in Barcelona, Spain. Students have the option to undertake the first year of the MSc in Swansea and the second year in Barcelona, or vice versa.

The entire programme is taught in English. 
As part of the course, students starting at Swansea will take a compulsory course of Spanish for beginners to enhance their experience during the second year in Barcelona.

After the first year, students will undertake a summer placement in industry before moving to the second institution. This is a unique opportunity to put into practice the skills learnt during the first year of the MSc as well as to enhance their employability. In fact, 20% of the students in the programme are employed after graduation by the company where they undertook the placement.

Graduates will obtain a double diploma from both Swansea University and UPC.

The International MSc in Computational Mechanics is one of the three Computational MSc courses offered by Swansea University. See the full list of programmes: Computational MSc courses
