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.
