Pioneering solutions to complex engineering problems
We've joined the EU "Master Class" to win EU funding for two prestigious international postgraduate programmes: Erasmus Mundus MSc in Computational Mechanics (MCM) Erasmus Mundus PhD in Computational Mechanics (SEED).
The Civil and Computational Engineering Centre is acknowledged internationally as the leading UK centre for computational engineering research. Many numerical techniques currently in use in commercial simulation software have originated from Swansea University.
PhD Computational Mechanics (Erasmus Mundus)
Our pioneering of the Finite Element Method is recognised as one of the top 100 discoveries and developments in UK universities to have changed the world.
The Finite Element Method developed at Swansea University by Professor Olek Zienkiewicz in 1967 has enabled us to take a lead in computational modelling techniques that allow engineers to design ever more challenged structures and processes, with the minimal use of expensive experimental testing.
"I decided to study at the College of Engineering because it got good reviews from my Master’s Thesis supervisor at KTH, Stockholm, Sweden and Bachelors Thesis supervisor at IIT-Roorkee, India.
Studying at the College of Engineering provided me with a very high level of technical education and significant international exposure. As a result of this, after finishing my PhD I had several job offers and I took the one that suited me best.
Currently I am working as an Associate Research Reservoir Engineer at the Shell International Exploration and Production Research Centre in the Netherlands."
