Course Summary

This MRes programme consists of two streams: students may choose to specialise in either structures or fluids. The taught modules provide a good grounding in computer modelling and in the finite element method, in particular. 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.

Using mathematical modelling as the basis, computational methods provide procedures which, with the aid of the computer, allow complex problems to be solved. The techniques play an ever-increasing role in industry and there is further emphasis to apply the methodology to other important areas such as medicine and the life sciences.

This course is suitable for those who are interested in gaining a solid understanding of computer modelling, specialising in either structures or fluids, and taking the skills gained through this course to develop their career in industry or research. The MRes Computer Modelling in Engineering course is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM).

Entry requirements

Students need first or upper second class honours degree in Engineering, Mathematics or a similar relevant science discipline. We welcome applications by prospective students from around the world and look for evidence of previous study that is equivalent to the entry requirements stated above. Applicants to this programme would normally be expected to meet the minimum entry requirements indicated above. The College/School reserves the right to ask for higher academic grades and qualifications. Admissions decisions take into account not only prior academic qualifications, but also factors including the standard of the research synopsis/proposal submitted by the applicant, their performance at interview (if required), intensity of competition for limited places and relevant professional experience (where appropriate).

University information

Located on the stunning Swansea Bay coastline, this Welsh university provides easy access to the city centre, as well as to the beaches of the spectacular Gower Peninsula. Swansea has recently been named University of the Year by students at the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2019, where it was also runner-up in the Postgraduate category. It’s also recognised as a UK top 30 research institution (Research Excellence Framework 2014). The...more
