Program description

Computational Materials Science, Master's Program (Two-year)

Computational Materials Science is a two-year master’s program that prepares students for research studies within computational-based sciences and technology. The courses offered give the students a broad perspective on material behaviors under different conditions, with a special focus on computational modelling of material mechanisms on different length scales. In addition, the program covers relevant techniques associated with synchrotron light and neutron radiation used for experimental small-scale characterizations of materials. Students develop the ability to use research methods to address materials science-related issues and test their skills through the degree project during the program's second year. The degree project will typically be associated with either an ongoing research project or a relevant industry-related project.

A graduate from the program will have skills requested by the industry to work as an engineer and/or product developer. Material testing is a vital but highly expensive and time-consuming part of product development. Consequently, there is a demand for people with advanced knowledge of how to use computational techniques to construct virtual testing and materials characterization environments. With its unique and strong focus on modelling and simulation, the Computational Materials Science master’s program gives students in-demand skillsets that are becoming increasingly relevant for the job market.
