Program Description

MSc in Continuum Mechanics: Fundamentals and Applications

Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University

The Master's Degree Program Continuum Mechanics: Fundamentals and Applications is aimed to prepare masters, who are able to formulate and solve a wide range of problems arising in various fields of continuum mechanics – both of mechanics of solids and fluids, with focus on interdisciplinary, in strong connection with engineering applications in hi-tech and advanced manufacturing technologies – in the spirit of the STEM Education concept aimed at obtaining 21st century skills in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Program profile. Major areas of expertise:

  • Fundamental Mechanics: Mechanics and Thermodynamics of Continua, Elasticity, Plasticity, Fracture Mechanics and Micromechanics of Heterogeneous Media, Мicromechanics of Strength and Plasticity, Dynamics of thin-walled structures, Waves in Continua, Fluid Mechanics, Multiphase Flows, Turbulence Modeling, Research and Developments of Mechatronic Systems, Micromechanics of heterogeneous media -42 ECTS;
