The COMMAS Summer School contains advanced state of the art topics on continuum mechanics, numerical methods, and engineering materials to be seen as enhancement of the courses from the first and second semester. These topics are given in the summer school by internationally recognized experts.

 

The students possess a good understanding of current developments in computational mechanics, both in research and industrial application, through the direct interaction with internationally recognized researchers in this field. Through the exposure to the high-level course material, the students are able to make active use of the relevant literature in computational mechanics, which benefits them in their Master's Thesis works as well as their later professional life.

Please note that the affiliations of the speakers correspond to the invited year which might have changed now.
