The TU/e Graduate School offers a Master’s program ‘Science and Technology of Nuclear Fusion’. In this program students can follow a variety of specialized cross-disciplinary computational courses important for Fusion research:
‘Advanced Computational Fluid and Plasma Dynamics’, ‘Computational & Mathematical Physics’ (both Applied Physics), ‘Advanced Computational Continuum Mechanics’, ‘Computational and Experimental Micromechanics’ (both Mechanical Engineering), and ‘Modeling Dynamics’ (Electrical Engineering). Computational methods relevant for energy research have been introduced in the new course ‘Computational & Mathematical Physics’ of the Master’s program of Applied Physics, obligatory for Master students in all tracks. The new elective course ‘Computational Materials Science’ in the NANO track of the Applied Physics Master treats Molecular Dynamics (MD) and Density Functional Theory (DFT) and their application to solar cells, CO2 splitting, and hydrogen storage in metals. The specialization ‘Computational Science and Engineering’ within the Master’s program ‘Industrial and Applied Mathematics’ connects excellently to the research within the CCER.
Students from the different Master’s programs at the TU/e can do their Master Project in the CCER. Also students from other universities in the Netherlands and abroad are welcome to do their Master Project in the CCER.
