The special Master’s track Fluid and Solid Mechanics learns you to describe, analyze and optimize the static and dynamic mechanical behavior of products, processes and systems.
The mechanics of fluids and solids plays a vital role in the competitive engineering of advanced products, processes and systems. The principles and balance equations derived from fluid and solid mechanics yield a description of the behavior of these materials within the products, processes and systems concerned. Subsequently, this can provide the basis for analysis, optimization and, as a result, design.
Fluid and Solid Mechanics form a fundamental core of engineering sciences such as Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mathematics and Physics. The advent of modern computers has created totally new challenges and perspectives for this discipline.
Fluid and Solid Mechanics is formally a track of the Mechanical Engineering Master’s degree program. The department has a close working relationship with many high-tech companies in the region. This track links up seamlessly to the PhD programs of the nationwide research schools JM Burgerscentrum (fluid mechanics) and Engineering Mechanics (solid mechanics). The very broad spectrum of applications means that graduates of this special Master’s track will be able to find careers in a wide variety of institutes and industries.
Fluid and Solid Mechanics Curriculum
The first year of the Fluid and Solid Mechanics program starts with 15 elective courses that deepen or broaden your knowledge. You can find a description of the elective courses on the website. At the end of the first year the internship takes place by one of the participating research groups.
The second year comprises of the individual space and the graduation project. The individual space can be an extensive literature survey, additional elective courses, a combination of both or an individual or team project.

The track covers aspects of fluid and solid mechanics, modeling, analytical, numerical and experimental methods, and optimization. The applications range from systems at nano, micro and millimeter scale through large-scale industrial processes to environmental issues. Graduates will be able to play a significant role in design and project teams working on a broad range of industrial applications.
Fluid and Solid Mechanics Specializations
There are four specializations within the Fluid and Solid Mechanics course. At the start of the program you choose one of these specializations:
Computational Science and Engineering: in this track, you will learn to develop new numerical algorithms, such as advanced discretisation schemes and solution routines, for multi-scale and multi-physics problems.
Dynamics and Control: in this specialization you will study the application of advanced materials in dynamcis problems. An example would be tire mechanics design.
Heat and Flow: you will study the design and analysis of complex, mulit-physics and multi-phase fluid problems. Applications can be found in alternative energy sources and combustion techniques.
Mechanics and Materials: you will studt the design and analysis of complex, engineering materials such as composite materials and advanced steels.
