ETSII/UNED and Ingeciber began their partnership in 1993 by unifying their wide experience using numerical analysis methods in different research areas and professional engineering applications.

The objective was, and still is, to prepare specialists in the use of Finite Element Method (FEM) and CAE Simulation for practical professional application.

Specialists in FEM (university professors and Ingeciber expert engineers) have designed elaborated a study programme that finally has became the International Master in Theoretical & Practical Application of Finite Element Method and CAE Simulation.

More than 2,500 postgraduates have participated in this Master's since then, which clearly demonstrates that the course has obtained wide prestige and recognition over the years.

Committed to excellence in teaching, research and innovation, the Partnership is actively engaged with industry, governments and universities across the world in tackling some of the major challenges of today and tomorrow.

We hope that you will consider undertaking our World class Master's Degree course and achieve your full potential.

Course Content

The multi-dimensional curriculum is aimed not just at acquiring knowledge but at developing critical thinking and analytical ability and facilitating research at every stage of the course.

  1. Expert Module: provides key understanding of the FEM, in order to have a solid foundation to further develop at more advanced levels.
  2. Specialized Modules: provide a huge range of possibilities for in-depth analysis of different areas through theoretical and practical knowledge: Dynamic, Non-Linear, Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics, Steel Structures and Advanced Concrete analysis.
  3. The course offers three different degree options (Expert, Specialist and Master's) to pursue your training through core and elective subjects.
  4. A wide range or texts and practical exercises (English language) provide complete studying material.
  5. Practical learning is acomplished by using Patran/Nastran, CivilFEM with Marc and CFD++ software (under educational license).
  6. The course uses the following tools: On-line virtual classrooms, video conferences, technical forums, e-mail, on-line aditional support material, etc...
  7. Local collaborators will be available to give tutorials in different countries.

The Following awards will be granted on successful completion of the different Master's levels:

Expert in theoretical and practical application of finite element method.
(The students must take Expert Module)

Specialist in theoretical and practical application of finite element method and simulation.
(The students must take the Expert Module and one Specialized Module)

Master's in theory and practical application of finite element method and simulation.

Diplomas are issued by UNED university of Spain. To access this postgraduate course at least a EHEA bachelor's degree (grado EEES) is required.

Academic Route

Participants who choose Mechanical Branch in the Expert Module, will use MSC PATRAN / NASTRAN software in Dynamic, Non-Linear and Heat Transfer specialized modules and CFD++ software in Fluid Mechaniscs specialized module.

Participants who choose Construction Branch in the Expert module, will use CivilFEM with Marc in Dynamic, Non-Linear, Steel Structure and Concrete Advanced specialized modules.
