- Master of Science Computational Mechanics of Materials and Structures (COMMAS)
COMMAS is about the development and implementation of numerical methods based on the principles of mechanics, mathematics and computer science. Students learn different practical and powerful approaches to model, understand and predict responses of complex materials and structures encountered almost all engineering disciplines.
The entire master's program can be studied in English and takes two years (four semesters) including a master thesis. COMMAS has been designed to be a very compact graduate program. It attracts also people who already have finished other studies to gain expertise in the promising field of Computational Mechanics of Materials and Structures.
A bachelor‘s degree in engineering or in a related field is required in addition to an international English language test. Applicants coming from certain countries are also applied to additional requirements.
Within the program we offer a wide range of courses. Therefore, students are usually asked to prepare a study plan and encouraged to get in touch with the advising professors (who are the members of COMMAS Study Commission and can support the students with their studies) to make sure that they can find out their interest areas and decide on the electives.
Graduates of this program can apply their knowledge in almost all engineering problems. Examples are simulation of automobile crash tests, prediction of failure load of materials, modeling biological tissues, development of functional materials to be used in robotics among others. COMMAS is a strongly research oriented program. Therefore the students are also ideally prepared for careers at universities, laboratories and research centers.
