What will I learn?

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 Computational Engineering major 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.

Throughout your studies, you will develop your skills in applied mathematics and become familiar with the most common theories in physics, mechanics and engineering. You will learn to use some of the most popular engineering software packages, and develop your programming skills by implementing algorithms to solve design problems.

You will also have the opportunity to apply your knowledge to tackle real-world engineering problems in multidisciplinary projects. These projects will bring you closer to professional engineering practice and allow you to develop your abilities to work as a team, manage projects, and communicate your results effectively.

After completing your studies, you will have a strong background in mathematics, engineering and computing. You will not only be familiar with existing computational methods, but also possess the knowledge necessary to follow future developments in this rapidly evolving discipline. The program will give you the foundations to become a computational expert ready to tackle advanced engineering problems in a variety of fields.

Computational Engineering is one of the majors in the Aalto University Bachelor's Programme in Science and Technology available in English.
