Computer aided design and manufacturing, mechanical systems, offshore and civil engineering structures, and renewable energy technology have been benefited from the research and development on Solid and Fluid Mechanics, Materials Science, Structural Integrity, Steel Structures, Finite Elements etc. The advances on above engineering fields have improved the performance, cost-effectiveness and safety of Engineering Structures. Advanced alloys, concrete, composites, and polymers with the aid of computational mechanics, applied mathematics, microscopy, and experimental investigation provide today significant tools for engineering design and product development.
The MSc programme in Engineering Structures and Materials will provide students with an expertise and advanced knowledge, skills and general competence in Mechanical and Structural Engineering and Materials Science through the following four specializations:
- Mechanical systems
- Renewable energy
- Civil engineering structures
- Offshore structures
The above specializations have a sound international profile with students from all over the world. Graduated students have a comprehensive background in engineering science and technology and will be able to apply this knowledge within the area of their specialization. After the completion of the course package they can: (a) provide consulting, (b) work in industries or projects, (c) be managers or researchers, (d) design technological products, and (e) perform field measurements.
