Computational Methods in Engineering

© FBG/C.Bierwagen

The study programme on computational engineering started at Leibniz University Hannover in 2001, motivated from the broad research activities in that field. We recognized the need for specific training in that field to educate young professionals who are competent to perform sophisticated modelling tasks and judge the results from those computations.


WHAT IS COMPUTATIONAL METHODS IN ENGINEERING?

Nowadays, powerful commercial codes are available in almost every discipline and in industrial usage. Young professionals must be trained for related modeling techniques and judgement of computational results. In addition, the development of new sophisticated computational methods is currently under research. This will enable much more detailed modeling of processes in engineering which would consider multiple length-scales, multi-physic interactions, huge structures and systems, and long term predictions considering random effects and similar parameters.

WHAT DO I LEARN DURING THE STUDIES?

Graduates will be proficient in methods dealing with mathematics and information technology, as well as engineering modelling of simulation methods widely used in the industry. They will be self aware of the social, economical, and ecological significance and risks of the analysis they make. They will understand the current state of art in science and, on this basis, will develop the ability to analyse specific problems according to scientific methods. Economical practice and transdisciplinary team work will be covered of course. Students learn to apply and deepen their previously acquired theoretical knowledge in engineering tasks on complex problems in practice.
