Testimonials

The UNED FEA Master program powered with MSC Software’s simulation products is a well-structured online program with a great team of staff that is always available to support students’ needs. I have had great success learning Patran and MSC Nastran. The Professors are very helpful and responded to my questions in a timely manner. I am enjoying this program greatly."
Hao Lam, Vacco Industries
If you have completed your degree, or you are already working and would like to specialize in CAE simulation this program is first rate. This Master's in FEM has been a very important step in my career, opening the door to a position where I can apply my knowledge to solve any type of structural analysis."
David Casado Valdés Engineer, ABB Schweiz AG, Switzerland
The teachers are completely involved in helping us succeed. I'm very satisfied with the results of the time spent in studying the Master's, and I believe this opens up some great opportunities for my career in the future."

Background

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 objetive is to prepare the engineer in the use of Finite Element Method (FEM) and CAE Simulation for practical professional application.

More than 2,500 postgraduates have participated in this Master course since 1993 - demonstrating that course has obtained world wide prestige and recognition over the years.

Committed to excellence in teaching, research and innovation, the FEA Masters Program 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-Leading Master's Degree course and achieve your full potential.

Course Content

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

  1. Expert Module: provides the 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 Concrete Advanced analysis, Composite structures.
  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 of texts and practical exercises.
  5. Practical learning is accomplished by using Patran / MSC Nastran, MSC APEX, CivilFEM powered by Marc and CFD++ software (under educational license).
  6. The course uses the following tools: On-line virtual classrooms, technical forums, e-mail, and on-line support material.

Degrees

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 and CAE Simulation.
(Expert Module)

Specialist in Theoretical and Practical Application of Finite Element Method and CAE Simulation.
(Expert Module and one Specialized Module)

Master's in Theoretical and Practical Application of Finite Element Method and CAE Simulation.
(Expert Module, three Specialized Modules and the Master’s Final Project)

Diplomas are issued by UNED University of Spain. To access the postgraduate course, a bachelor's degree in engineering is required

Route
