TU Darmstadt: Computational Engineering
Computational Engineering is now regarded as an equal and indispensable partner, along with theory and experiment, in the advance of scientific knowledge and engineering practice. Numerical simulation enables the study of complex engineering systems and natural phenomena that would be too expensive or dangerous, or even impossible, to study by direct experimentation. Computational Engineering (CE) describes this rapidly growing multidisciplinary area with connections to engineering sciences, applied mathematics and computer science.
The mission of the Computational Engineering initiative in research and education at the Technische Universität Darmstadt is:
- to educate a new generation of young scientists and engineers as the potential future leaders in the field of Computational Engineering,
- to meet and master the challenges of ever higher levels of detail and complexity in upcoming and future modeling and simulation problems in the engineering sciences through strong, multi-disciplinary and cooperative research efforts,
- to stimulate new interdepartmental research projects in Computational Engineering ranging from basic to applied research,
- to serve the research needs of national and international companies and industries through consulting and applied research projects.
