International MSc programme Computer Simulation in Science


Since 2006 Wuppertal is successfully running an international M.Sc. programme entitled Computer Simulation in Science (CSiS)  that focuses on the development, implementation and application of computer-oriented simulation techniques and methods to modern research problems in natural sciences and engineering. All courses of this M.Sc. programme are taught in English language.

The MSc programme lasts for 4 semesters (2 years) and has a total of 120 ECTS credits. Students who successfully complete the programme will be awarded the degree of Master of Science (M.Sc.).

Besides compulsory courses in Computer Simulation, Computer Science and Numerical Methods, students will take elective courses in one of the following specializations of their choice:

  • Atmospheric Physics
  • Computational Electromagnetics
  • Computational Fluid Mechanics
  • Experimental Particle Physics
  • Financial Mathematics
  • Materials Science
  • Theoretical Chemistry
  • Theoretical Particle Physics

Hereby the ECMI node Wuppertal, the chair of Applied Mathematics and Numerical Analysis, offers the compulsory courses on the numerical methods for ODEs and PDEs and the elective courses of computational finance.

Preliminary knowledge at Bachelor’s level in the chosen specialization as well as knowledge of at least one programming language is required.
