Our Computational Engineering specialisation will provide you with a thorough grounding in the fundamental numerical and computational techniques used in fluids and structures engineering packages, in combination with the use of engineering modelling based on physical principles.

This specialisation will also provide an understanding of parallel computer hardware and parallel programming including domain decomposition and message passing.

It will enable you to develop and use engineering packages with an understanding of convergence, accuracy, efficiency and validation, as well as offer the opportunity to undertake a major project in a specialist area of computational engineering. 

Graduate opportunities

As a graduate of our Computational Engineering specialisation, you will have developed skills that are applicable to engineering analysis, design, manufacturing and optimisation across a very wide range of industries.  

You may pursue a career in the development of new engineering software packages or become involved in other industry sectors requiring engineering analysis.
