Description of course of studies

Computational Mechanics is a combination of mechanics, mathematics and computer science. The respective methods are applied to all areas of engineering and sciences which follow the rules of mechanics. The English term “Computational Mechanics” is internationally used and reflects the global cooperation in this field. Mechanics - concerned with the behaviour of physical bodies when subjected to forces or displacements, and the subsequent effect of the bodies on their environment- is a very old science. Newton’s Laws still form the basis for all methods in this field. For centuries the limited calculating capacity was decisive for the development. After the invention of the computer all the barriers dropped down. Nowadays highly sophisticated methods permit complex simulations of complicated structures and constructional elements. In this context the Finite Element Method has proved to be a universal technique.

The tendency is clear: the further rapid development of computers and the therewith connected technologies makes the practical computation of scientific phenomena possible which haven’t been ascertainable yet. In the future an engineer, being familiar with Computational Mechanics, is demanded to have a consolidate knowledge in mechanics, mathematics and computer sciences more than today. A strong background in Computational Mechanics opens up a successful career in many fields of engineering. The interdisciplinary education conveys the ability to find innovative, creative and efficient solutions for the individual case and in consideration of the given time frame and budget. The methods used in the field of Computational Mechanics are the future-oriented techniques a modern engineer needs.

Typical applications are for example, in
  • Civil Engineering: new materials, nonlinear and dynamical structural behaviour, interaction between building and environment, structural optimization and form finding, estimation of fatigue strength, transient behaviour, flow-simulations, coupling of CAD and computing, information and internet technology.
  • Mechanical and Automotive Engineering: 3-D-structural analysis, nonlinear dynamics, optimization, multibody dynamics, crash, acoustics, airbags.
  • Aerospace Engineering: fluid-structure-interaction, structural optimization, supersonic flight, high temperature exposure in the aerospace, active dampers, stratosphere balloons.
  • Biomechanics and Medical Engineering: material models (e.g. bones, tissues), prostheses, implants, artificial blood vessels.

The Master of Science program “Computational Mechanics, come.TUM” is embedded into the “Bavarian Graduate School of Computational Engineering, BGCE” which in turn is part of the Elite Network of Bavaria . BGCE is a joint venture of three related international master programs at TU München and University Erlangen-Nürnberg: Computational Mechanics (come.TUM), Computational Science and Engineering (CSE), both at TUM, and Computational Engineering (CE), at Erlangen-Nürnberg. Highly qualified students have the possibility to become member of BGCE and to share courses from the participating programs with the additional benefit to be rewarded by the academic degree of a Master of Science with Honours. The BGCE course offer is expanded by a new, project specific and research oriented education component and the use of the synergies between the different programs.
