The Master of Science in Mechanics of Materials and Structures (MMS) is an official Master’s degree of the European Higher Education Area. The master MMS is aimed at students who wish to develop their knowledge and skills regarding the mechanical behaviour of materials and structures.
The MMS Masters provides the student with the necessary skills to atake up leading roles in analysis, design, research, and development of structures with applicability in a variety of sectors (aerospace, building, race sport, marine, sports goods, civil, mechanical or wind turbine engineering). The MMS master’s classes are performed by teachers with high international recognition in scientific research and technology transfer to the industry.
The objective of this master’s programme is to link current knowledge of theories of the behaviour of materials with the most innovative techniques in structural engineering. The proposed syllabus places special emphasis on computational techniques, materials mechanics, advanced structural design and experimental techniques.
