Course Description

Computational engineering allows the analysis of problems that would otherwise be almost impossible by traditional experimentation due to cost or safety. Virtual prototyping can provide modelling, analysis, simulation, optimization and thus a safer and more cost effective alternative to investigate new engineering solutions. This course offers a firm grounding in modern computational engineering, with a strong emphasis in electromagnetics. Students will gain multidisciplinary in-depth training in the application of electromagnetics and related numerical and computational techniques which will prepare them for either a career in industry or research. Students will develop: the ability to understand and apply the theory, method and practice of computational engineering specialist skills and knowledge in electromagnetics the ability to select and apply appropriate computer-based methods for modelling and analysing problems in electromagnetics the ability to plan and undertake an individual project interpersonal, communication and professional skills the ability to communicate ideas effectively in written reports and oral presentation The courses consist of 120 credits of taught modules along with a 60 credits major individual research project undertaken over the summer term. Current Faculty Activity The George Green Institute for Electromagnetics originated and developed the transmission line modelling (TLM) method of numerical simulation and is today one of the international centres of expertise in this area. The Institute is the Preferred Academic Capability Partner for BAE Systems in the area of Multi-scale and Material Modelling in Electromagnetics. The Institute has an international standing in simulation for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and on the study of fast transients for protection and fault location.
