Open Doors. March 29, 5:00 pm (GMT +3, Moscow time)
about the program
Mechanics is at the heart of many technological processes in the energy sector, manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, defense, transportation, and others sectors. Computational modeling plays a key role in the development of state-of-the art technologies in these areas. The program offers a modern curriculum that prepares students in the modeling of mechanics of fluids and solids, analysis of multiphase and reacting flows, and computational science and engineering. Graduates will become leaders in research and development of modern computational tools required by high-tech industries.
