The principle idea behind this part of the programme is twofold. First, depending on the background of the student, an individually tuned Homologation Programme has to be followed so that all students are able to attend successfully the courses of the Core Programme. Secondly, a student should have an opportunity to make a choice based on his/her talents and interests in this engineering oriented programme.
Orientation towards Industry
As the programme aims at students who are considering a career in industry, there is ample opportunity to select a coherent package of engineering subjects as a minor in engineering to get a proper feeling for the engineering sciences and to make him/her fit for working in a multidisciplinary team. Provided there is no interference with the latter, there may be some depth in a single engineering subject. Minors in engineering may be selected from Fluid Dynamics, Electro-Magnetics, Solid Mechanics, Biomedical Engineering, Material Sciences, etc. In each of these subjects there will be a coherent choice of topics, often related to more than one specific engineering subject.
Example: minor in fluid dynamics:
Physical Transport Phenomena: Fluid dynamics plays an important role in both daily life and high tech applications. This course will involve topics like Navier Stokes, Euler and Bernoulli equations. Turbulence and boundary layers.
Numerical Methods for Heat Exchange and Flow: Application of the finite element method to engineering problems dealing with heat exchange (parabolic equations) or flow (Navier Stokes equations)
Computational Fluid Dynamics: Although most of this minor is related to CFD, this course will in particular address the flow equations for high Reynolds numbers. It will also discuss the weaknesses and the strong points of computational engineering for this class of problems.
Note: all minors in engineering require in addition some knowledge of computer science and include a course on Parallel Computing and on Computer Graphics.
Moreover students may deepen their mathematical knowledge, like in Multi-Scale Analysis, Measure and Integration Theory, Advanced Partial Differential Equations, etc.
Since not all students will have the same entrance level (for requirements see below, please fill out the lists of subjects as extensively as possible), they may be asked to prepare some assignments before arrival. These will be considered as part of the individual programme and credited accordingly. To make sure the M.Sc. students are well prepared for studying and for life in the Netherlands, it is recommended that they contact the course manage- ment in time so that a suitable acquaintance programme can be organised, in particular related with living in the Netherlands. The students are supposed to arrive before early in August so that proper arrangements can be made before the actual course starts in the last week of August. University staff and student mentors take care of a scheduled process of arrival, getting together, getting settled and getting around (airport pick-up, housing, medical insurance, language facilities, exploration of the university and of Eindhoven, use of library and computer facilities, etc.).
