Swansea University has been at the forefront of international research in the area of civil and computational engineering. Internationally renowned engineers at Swansea pioneered the development of numerical techniques, such as the finite element method, and associated computational procedures that have enabled the solution of many complex engineering problems.
Computer simulation is now an established discipline that has an important role to play in engineering, science and in newly emerging areas of interdisciplinary research.
The Zienkiewicz Centre for Computational Engineering at Swansea University has excellent computing facilities, including a state-of-the-art multi-processor super computer with virtual reality facilities and high-speed networking.
Research within Engineering at Swansea University is multidisciplinary in nature, incorporating our strengths in research areas across the Engineering disciplines.
Computational mechanics forms the basis for the majority of the MSc by Research projects within this engineering discipline.
