What job prospects are available to me after graduation?

Graduates can work in various industrial sectors. With their knowledge in material theory and modelling, simulation technology and numerical methods, our graduates are particularly suitable for professions in the following areas:

  • simulation technology
  • modelling of complex boundaries such as crash test simulations in the automotive industry
  • design of finite elements and complex discretization
  • coupled problems in design concepts for lifecycle-modeling in application areas of electric mobility.

COMMAS is a strongly research oriented program. The students are therefore ideally prepared for a university career at faculties of mechanical engineering and civil engineering.


The quality of this degree program has been certified.
