Is CSE an advantage in engineering

Master's degree in Computational Science and Engineering

The Master’s program in Computational Science and Engineering imparts basic knowledge in the field of applied mathematics and computer science and enables a focus on at least two examination subjects as key areas from a cross-faculty catalog (in alphabetical order): Computational Building Science, Computational Chemistry and Material Science, Computational Electronics, Computational Fluid Dynamics and Acoustics, Computational Informatics, Computational Mathematics, Computational Mechatronics, Computational Solid Mechanics. Each of these elective modules is made up of (compulsory and) optional courses. This enables both an adjustment of the level of training and a flexible adaptation to the interests and strengths of the respective students.

Further information on the course

The steady progress in science and technology is increasingly dependent on computationally intensive computer simulations. Due to the need to carry out these computer simulations precisely and quickly, Computational Science and Engineering has emerged internationally as an independent and interdisciplinary research area. This combines in particular numerical mathematics and computer science with natural sciences and technology in order to create efficient computer simulations in a variety of applications in civil engineering, chemistry, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, materials science, mechatronics and physics using highly parallelized computer systems - from individual workstations to large ones Computing clusters and supercomputers - to enable.

The English-language master’s degree in Computational Science and Engineering provides the necessary interdisciplinary, scientific and excellent specialist skills.

The Master’s degree in Computational Science and Engineering is aimed at graduates of a natural science or technical bachelor’s degree. Applicants should have a strong interest in the development and implementation of computer simulations. This is based on an enthusiasm for the development of efficient program codes for applied mathematics as well as for the physical modeling of complex systems.

The Master’s degree in Computational Science and Engineering is generally suitable for graduates of a natural science or technical bachelor’s degree. The main requirement for admission is that courses totaling at least 30 ECTS in the fields of computer science and mathematics have been completed in the preliminary course.

Persons whose mother tongue is not English must prove their knowledge of the English language. For a successful course of study, knowledge of English according to reference level B2 (corresponds to the Austrian Matura level) of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages ​​is recommended. Some supplementary courses to achieve full equivalence of the completed degree are offered in German. Therefore, knowledge of German according to reference level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages ​​is recommended.

There are no formal restrictions on the order in which courses (LVAs) are to be completed, so in principle the semester planning is up to the students. Due to the constructive nature of the course, however, it is advisable to follow the recommendations for the semester, opens an external URL in a new window, opens an external URL in a new window.
