Program Description

MSc Advanced Dynamics of Discrete and Continuum Systems

Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University

Objective of the Programme

The program is designed for training highly professional scientists and engineers with the theoretical background and practical experience in theoretical mechanics, computational mechanics, IT, mathematical modelling and simulations, and distributed computing.

Key Advantages

The graduates will have an opportunity to get a challenging and well-paid job at research institutes, centres and labs. They will be able to find employment at R&D and engineering departments of oil and gas, car-making, power and engineering, aerospace and other companies.

The combination of theoretical courses in mechanics and mathematics with the practical experience in the field, workshops and training sessions in IT, simulations and distributed computing. Our graduates develop theoretical and practical competences enabling them to participate in research and development in the field of mathematical modelling and simulations and distributed computing.

Discrete and continuum methodsallow to use a wide range of applications including mechanical, physical, biological, social, and economic systems involving the dynamic processes.

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

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

Teaching Methods

World famous professors are invited as guest lecturers. Special resourses of SPbSPU supercomputing center and a digital fabrication laboratory FabLabSPbSPU will be available for students. The students can have an internship at research centers and companies in St. Petersburg.
