Engineers and scientists are now relying heavily on computational simulation techniques to develop new technologies and shape the world we live in. Ships, geothermal power plants, wind turbines and biomedical devices are a few examples of products where computer models are used to predict how new design ideas will behave in reality.
The course in Computational Engineering at Aalto University will give you the knowledge and skills necessary to understand, use and develop these computational tools, preparing you to make accurate predictions regarding complex physical problems.
Computational simulations now constitute an essential part of all technological industries. This means that you will be able to pursue a career in a wide range of fields including energy, construction, manufacturing, mechanical systems and more.
