Computer Simulations for Science and Engineering at KTH, TU Berlin and TU Delft

The master’s programme in Computer Simulations for Science and Engineering is a two-year programme including compulsory mobility for the students. The programme is given jointly by KTH, Technical University of Berlin in Germany and Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. Students will enter one of the universities and continue in their second year at one of the other universities. As a general rule, students will be admitted to TU Berlin for the first year.

The programme includes three semesters of courses followed by a fourth research semester spent on a master’s degree project under the supervision of both universities attended. The students receive two degrees from both the first and second year universities.

Courses

Learning outcomes

Students in the master’s programme in Computer Simulations for Science and Engineering will become very familiar with the tools of CSE, which includes:

  • mathematical modelling techniques
  • simulation techniques (discretisations, algorithms, data structures, software in CSE)
  • analysis techniques (data mining, data management, visualisation)

The students will become experts in the generic tools as applied to one of the specialisations offered by the universities. Upon graduation, the students will have acquired

  • familiarity with selected scientific and engineering application areas and their mathematical models.
  • a knowledge base and skills ranging from formulation of a mathematical model to constructing software for high-performance computer architectures.
  • effective communication skills for interacting on written and oral presentations with the professional community as well as management and society at large..
  • a degree of independent and critical appraisal of the capability and limitations of, and results produced by, computational modelling.

Workshop

After the beginning of the second semester, students, scholars and teachers of all partner universities will meet for a joint workshop to advise students on their elective courses, including possible topics for their master’s thesis. The workshop will include joint research and cultural activities and provide contacts to research departments in academia and industry.

Joint workshop

Degree project

The master’s degree project comprises 30 ECTS credits, and is carried out in the second half of the second year of the programme. Students are supervised and examined by faculty staff from both the home and the host university. The project work may be performed in a research group at the institute or as a project in industry or a consultancy company.

Previous degree project topics

This is a two year programme (120 ECTS credits) given in English. Graduates are awarded the degree of Master of Science from KTH and an equivalent degree from the other attended university. The programme is given mainly at KTH Campus in Stockholm by the School of Engineering Sciences (at KTH).

Topics covered

Computational fluid dynamics, numerical linear algebra, high-performance computing, data assimilation, optimal control, control theory, numerical analysis, biocomputing, bioinformatics, machine learning.

 

Specific requirements for the master’s programme in Computer Simulations for Science and Engineering (COSSE)

A bachelor’s degree corresponding to 180 ECTS credits from an internationally recognised university. The applicant should have a solid background in mathematics, computer science and numerical analysis including the following course work: vector calculus, ordinary differential equations, stochastics and statistics. In addition, a basic understanding of partial differential equations and basic experience of a higher programming language is required.
