Objectives of the Master's program

The objectives of the Master's program are teaching engineers the basic and specialized theory of the Finite Element Method (F.E.M.) using commercial grade Computer Aided Engineering technologies and the immediate transfer of this skill set to professional practical application on the job.

In short, the program's five main objectives are listed below


Solid foundation of FEM

The Basic Modules provide a solid foundation of FEM that can be further developed with various Specialized Modules.


Use of commercial software

Develop hands-on experience of commercial grade software including PATRAN / MSC NASTRAN, MSC APEX and CivilFEM powered by Marc (depending on which modules you take).


Practice examples

Practice examples that provide a real useful experience in the workplace.


Robust study material

Different texts and proposed exercises provide for a robust study material.


Modular & Adaptable Program

A combination of mandatory and optional modules so that students can adapt the training to their personal interests. To this end, the program offers three different levels awarding five different degrees: Expert, Specialist and Master's.
