MSc Advanced Dynamics of Discrete and continuum Systems

Objective of the programme

The programme is conducted with the participation of key professors of SPBSPU`s Institute of Mathe-matics and Mechanics and leading European technical universities. The underlying concept of MSc program “Advanced Dynamics of Discrete and continuum System” is a balanced combination of the funda-mental and practical backgrounds, using methods of mechanics for the description of dynamic processes in different areas such as mechanics, physics, biology, sociology, economy and etc. All lectures and examinations are conducted in English.

To prepare the highly skilled scientists and engineers with a deep theoretical background and practical experience in theoretical mechanics, computational mechanics, IT, mathematical modelling and simulations, and distributed computing. Also this MSc program improves a leadership, analytical, cross-cultural and organizational qualities. Upon graduation participants will have acquired the knowledge and skills needed for a future successful career in top positions in international engineering and research companies

Key advantages

1. The graduated students have a chance to get an interesting and a well-paid job at the research in-stitutes, centres and labs. Also they can work at R&D and engineering departments of oil and gas, automotive, power and engineering, aerospace and other companies.

2. Balanced combination of the theoretical courses in mechanics and mathematics with the practical exercises, workshops and training sessions in IT, simulations and distributed computing.

3. Unique opportunities for international mobility. Possible semester abroad at academic partners of SPbSPU. Double degree options with European universities.

4. The programme offers a unique opportunity for joint study of Russian students with students from other countries, the opportunity to participate together in academic and extracurricular activities of SPbSPU.

5. Support of students individual research project and technical ideas
