Computer simulations have become an indispensable part of everyday work in development, construction, operation and research. The bachelor's degree "Computational Engineering and Design" enables you to understand and help shape this exciting, interdisciplinary subject area.

Thanks to the coordinated lectures, exercises and projects, you will master the following areas in addition to the classic engineering and programming basics:

  • Simulation of components in terms of load-bearing capacity and deformation
  • Simulation of flows and fluid-structure interactions
  • Simulation of procedural processes
  • Simulation of dynamic systems
  • Visualization and evaluation of simulation results
  • Numerical methods
  • Project management

In addition to using industry-relevant simulation programs, you will learn to understand the theory behind them and to implement your own ideas in software. You can delve deeper into selected areas within the framework of elective subjects.

The CAVE, a virtual space, opens up completely new possibilities in teaching and research. Be there live when the liquid flows through a turbine.

Secure your professional future in the long term by taking an engineering degree with a focus on simulation, because digitalization in technology also means that computer simulation is becoming increasingly important.

Development cycles and costs in mechanical engineering and process engineering have already been significantly reduced in the last two decades through the increased use of computer simulations. As digitization progresses, we are facing another upheaval. The virtual world (simulation) and the real world are growing ever closer together. Help shape this upheaval!

As an expert in computer simulations, you are in demand today and in the future - in industrial companies, engineering service providers and of course in research institutions or as a founder of a start-up. The Beuth University supports you in all matters relating to the start-up: from financing to marketing.

In Berlin you will find an ideal location for innovative business ideas. Alternatively, you can attend an in-depth master’s degree, for example to work at an international research institute.

During your studies you can get in touch with future employers - in the context of the practical phase, for projects, excursions and the final thesis. The early practical phase in the 4th semester enables you not only to try out what you have learned at an early stage, but also to establish a long-term relationship with a future employer.
