Engineering Mechanics is an important part of the design process for a large range of products. As requirements become more and more complex and challenging, the demand for engineers trained to deal with advanced mechanical problems is increasing. The objective of the programme is to encourage and enable students to learn advanced topics in Engineering Mechanics. The programme is well balanced between theoretical studies and practical applications and thus provides a platform for a successful career in industry or continuation towards a PhD.
