About the Computational Sciences in Engineering (CSE)

Computational sciences and engineering have become an indispensable part of almost all scientific research and technological development at universities and laboratories as well as in research and development offices in the private sector.

The breathtaking progress in computing has dramatically changed the way engineers, mathematicians, and computer scientists work. The technological improvement of hard- and software and the genesis of computer-based methods have opened up new possibilities and horizons for the natural sciences and engineering.

In many areas computer simulations have complemented or even replaced experiments, which has led to a so far unknown quality of scientific and practical work.
A graduate who has successfully completed his studies in Computational Sciences in Engineering has the ability to develop mathematical models of physical processes arising in various engineering sciences and to solve the model equations with appropriate numerical methods.

He (she) has gained specialized knowledge in the fields of natural and engineering sciences (general physics, thermodynamics, solid and fluid dynamics), mathematics and computer science (linear algebra, differential equations, variational calculus, scientific computing) and scientific computing for engineering problems (numerical methods, weighted residuals, finite difference/volume/element technology for linear and nonlinear problems, high performance and parallel computing).

He (she) is able to apply this knowledge for the development of new approaches and enhancement of existing techniques, respectively.
He (she) has the ability to work in increasingly interdisciplinary project teams the members of which, at this stage, are often located at different places, partly in different continents, and communicate using modern media. In this working environment, he (she) is able to plan and handle sub-projects and to present his (her) results successfully.

The Master programme of the Technische Universitaet Braunschweig is research oriented and characterized by its distinctive scientific orientation. Moreover, it is characterized by the concentration in terms of the contents on the basis of an extensive offer of possibilities for consolidation that are strongly oriented to the current fields of research of the involved faculties and their institutes.

The graduates have a profound knowledge on several fields of a specific engineering science and scientific computing. Furthermore, key qualifications have been acquired.
The successful completion of the Master programme Computational Sciences in Engineering enables the graduates to find appropriate solutions for problems in the area of Computational Sciences in Engineering and to work in leading positions in the engineering industry and in the administration as well as to do research work independently.

Especially, the Master programme enables to perform research work independently within the scope of a doctoral thesis in the fields of Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Information Technology, Mathematics or Computer Science.
Graduates of the Master programme are able to solve problems using their specialized knowledge. Furthermore, their interdisciplinary knowledge enables them to occupy positions in project management.
