Applied Computational Mechanics at the People’s Education Society University (PESU)

PES University (PESU) is a private university situated in Bengaluru, the Silicon Valley of India. It was established in 1972 and it is focused on four main educational areas: Engineering, Medicine, Management and Life Sciences.

The institutions offer both foundation courses in these areas, as well as specialization with a Bachelors/ Master/ PhD degree. The aim of the university's education is to provide “education for the real world”, that helps the students to adapt to an intellectually and technologically changing environment. In cooperation with the simulation specialist CADFEM, the PES University offers a new type of Master's program. This program is offered in parallel to the job and designed for trained engineers, B-Tech graduates and scientists, who are either already working with numerical simulation or plan to begin shortly. Special management issues and intensive training courses in Simulations for freshers (ANSYS ATC), complete this excellent, career-integrated educational advancement opportunity.

Program Overview

Beginning in fall 2017, the Master’s Program in Applied Computational Mechanics will be offered at the PESU in Bengaluru. It is the first part time Master’s program in India which serves both B-Tech freshers and working professionals at the same time. For working professionals, the insight and questions garnered from their practical application of FEM support the learning process at the universities. The newly acquired knowledge will benefit their careers, allowing participants to quickly produce results or establish new methods for their companies. Therefore, students and employers both benefit from the first day of class on!

  • Possible Degrees
    • Master’s (M.Eng.) with 90 credit points
    • Module studies with certificate
  • Program starts in September 2017
  • Comprehensive combination of modules as needed
  • Experienced professors from university and industry
  • The language of instruction is English

As the program has been running since 2005 in Germany, students may choose the option for studying one or more modules in Germany at Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt and Landshut UAS at the third semester at the earliest. For those modules that are successfully completed at a German University you will be awarded with a university certificate.

Participant Group

The ideal candidates are university graduates, who have already collected professional experience in engineering or science, and who are interested in a professional or managerial career in the field of product development with a focus on simulation. The program is also open for professionals who have been contemplating a diploma, bachelor's, master's or even a doctoral degree.

Students who are coming directly from University will get extra courses in simulation in the first semester. All students are free to choose their own program like the whole master program or only module studies.

Module Course Offerings

Computational Mechanics

  • Mathematics and Computational Methods
  • Solid Mechanics
  • Finite Element Method
  • Geometrically Nonlinear and Contact Analysis
  • Materials and Material Models
  • Computational Dynamics
  • Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics*
  • Optimization and Robust Design*
  • Multibody Systems*

*Elective Modules

Credits that you earned from modules taken at esocaet Studies programs abroad will be taken into account.

Additional Themes

Training on Structural Mechanics using ANSYS will be provided for freshers and working professionals who do not have the simulation experience as part of the Master’s program.

Master's Program for Engineers with Simulation Experience

The career-integrated program is a module-concept and contains 90 credits total. Successful graduates will earn their Master of Engineering degree (M.Eng.) from PES university, which enables them to apply for their doctoral degree thereafter.

Sequence of Study

Master's curriculum

If you have at least 1 year of professional experience in simulation field before starting the program, up to 15 credits will be issued from your working experience during the first and second semester. Additionally, at least nine specialized modules must be completed from the module listing, including seven compulsory modules. The elective courses can be selected from the module catalogue of the master program or from a range of cooperating higher education institutions, so long as they are equivalent. Starting from third semester onwards you will have the possibility to take part at a module at any other university out of the esocaet consortia. We are happy to provide personalized advising concerning the possibility to earn credit through individual modules and from cooperating universities.

The master thesis generally involves the scientific processing of a task for the your company. The final program component takes place through a master’s thesis defense at the university.  

Time Period

The study is divided into in-person and self-study phases. The classroom includes lectures, seminar-like classes and practical exercises. Overall, you need to plan for about 110 days of in-person attendance within three-years, as well as eight to ten hours per week for independent study. The classroom teaching takes place at PES university, usually on Friday and Saturday. Thus, the program is specifically tailored to the needs of those who are working, and it can also be completed with longer travel distances.

Study Fees

Fees: 600,000 IND Rupees
Payment: before entering university

We have compiled information regarding student finances.

Master's Program for Engineers without Simulation Experience & Freshers

The career-integrated program is a module-concept and contains 90 credits total. Successful graduates will earn their Master of Engineering degree (M.Eng.), which enables them to apply for their doctoral degree thereafter.

Sequence of Study

Master's curriculum with ATC

Engineers without experience in simulation based engineering as well as freshers have the chance to gain simulation knowledge, explained on practice-oriented examples in the ANSYS Training Seminar (ATC) taught by CADFEM Engineering during the first semester. Additionally, at least nine specialized modules must be completed from the module listing, including seven compulsory modules, over five semesters. The elective courses can be selected from the module catalogue of the master program or from a range of cooperating higher education institutions, so long as they are equivalent. Starting from third semester onwards you have the possibility to take part at a module at any other university out of the esocaet consortia. We are happy to provide personalized advising concerning the possibility to earn credit through individual modules and from cooperating universities.
