DescriptionYou will find the answers to many questions in the field of solid-state and fluid mechanics, known by the collective title of applied mechanics. Such questions include: How do you design the blades of a wind turbine? How do you calculate the lifetime of a computer chip or a fuel cell? What surface coatings are suitable for tools, and what should you use for hip-joint implants? How do you analyse the dynamics of a racing car? How do you configure the sail of a boat as efficiently as possible? These examples demonstrate that applied mechanics is a subject with great scope for interdisciplinary collaboration. Working with the conventional machinery industry is one option, but there are also opportunities for collaborating with manufacturers of composites and materials, the electronics industry, the construction industry and in fields such as biomechanics and biomaterials. Mechanics is also a basic engineering research discipline that is on the move internationally and is represented at most universities all over the world. This makes a career as a researcher in this field yet another option.
As a graduate from this programme, you will be capable of understanding and applying advanced calculation methodologies, such as the finite element method (FEM) and multidisciplinary simulation tools. The emphasis of the degree programme is on providing an opportunity to apply theory to practical issues and on providing the expertise necessary to go on to a PhD. The content includes elements such as fluid dynamics (CFD), structural dynamics and modal analysis, and fracture mechanics and fatigue. The basis for these competencies includes continuum mechanics, elasticity theory and plasticity theory.
Career opportunitiesGraduates typically find jobs within R&D departments in industrial companies, but with the backup provided by a graduate engineering degree, you can also pursue a career as a researcher at a university in Denmark or abroad.
