Learn how to problem-solve and optimise product design within a broad spectrum of different engineering applications. This master’s programme will give you an internationally competitive education in modelling, computational and experimental techniques in applied mechanics.
This programme will train you to solve solid, structural and fluid mechanics problems in a broad spectrum of different application areas. You will gain core competences, preparing you to become a key player for both large and small enterprises, and you will gain the skills required to work with the mechanical design of sustainable and competitive products — all while considering aspects like reliability, robustness, weight, and energy efficiency.
The importance of the programme is evidenced by the role that simulation tools play in engineering practice today. New developments in computing and algorithms will continue to increase the accuracy and potential of simulations as a part of design processes, and their importance to the field will only grow.
Alongside normal educational elements such as lectures and project work, you will also benefit greatly from the interconnections and active collaborations we offer with industry partners. Guest lectures, study visits and collaborative tasks with these organisations form important parts of this course, and most students carry out their master thesis project in connection with an industry partner — though they can also be carried out with research groups at Chalmers, or internationally.
Upon completion of the programme, you will have the skills to critically evaluate results from simulations and experiments, analyse and isolate errors and risks in complex engineering problems, and use simplified assumptions to validate results from complex models.
You will study solid mechanics, fluid and structural dynamics as fundamental areas on this programme. A wide range of elective courses will also allow you to look at topics such as mathematical modelling in mechanics, simulation techniques like the finite element method (FEM) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and experimental techniques in mechanics.
