Location: University of Duisburg-Essen in the Heart of the Ruhr Region, one of the most prosper areas in Germany


The use of computer-assisted strategies regarding the solution of practice-oriented problems has increased in the last decades rapidly. Computational solutions have entered such diverse areas as building sciences, mechanical engineering, automotive industry, medicine (bio-mechanics) or biology. The fundamental concept which enables this development based on the interdisciplinary combination of the fields: 

Experiment – Modeling – Simulation. 

The program „Computational Mechanics“ forms a cross-linking between engineering fields by combining experiences in theoretical concepts, numeric treatments and experimental reality.
