Computer Modelling and Finite Elements in Engineering Mechanics
Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study at Swansea University - winner of the 'Postgraduate' category at the WhatUni? Student Choice Awards 2017. Using mathematical modelling as the basis, computational methods provide procedures which, with the aid of the computer, allow complex problems to be solved. The techniques play an ever-increasing role in industry and there is further emphasis to apply the methodology to other important areas such as medicine and the life sciences.
Usually the entry requirements for the MSc Computer Modelling and Finite Elements in Engineering Mechanics course is a first or second class honours degree in Engineering, Mathematics or similar relevant science discipline. You will also need to have an overall mark of at least 55%, however performance in key modules will also be considered.
We welcome applications by prospective students from around the world and look for evidence of previous study that is equivalent to the entry requirements stated above. The Postgraduate Admissions Office are happy to advise you on whether your qualifications are suitable for entry to the course you would like to study.
