The development of new and powerful computational systems, in conjunction with amazing progress in computational methods and means has led to the realistic modeling and effective simulation of natural phenomena and engineering processes and systems, aiming at the solution of challenging scientific and technical problems. Moreover, it has broadened the horizons of scientific research.
The overall aim of the Program is to provide postgraduate training which will prepare the student for either industrial employment or further research. The NTUA Schools provide advanced study and research in Fluid Mechanics and Structural Mechanics, two pillars of engineering science. These two topics are linked by the demand of industry for reliable analysis of fluid flow and complex structures, but are relevant either separately or combined in many areas of interdisciplinary research and applications.
