International Master's in Theoretical & Practical Application of
Finite Element Method and CAE Simulation
22nd Edition. 2016


Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) use is growing widely in today´s manufacturing world.

Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) use is growing widely in today´s manufacturing world. Its use has enabled designers and engineers to drastically reduce product development cost and time while improving the safety, comfort, and durability of the products they produce. The "real world" predictive capability of CAE tools has progressed to the point where much of the design verification is now done using computer simulations rather than physical prototype testing. The industry was expected to grow to over 5 billion/yr. in revenues by 2013.

As use of CAE expands, there is a growing need for additional training and certification for both recent technical graduates and working professionals in the proper use and implementation of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) in the workplace.

Twenty one years of our FEA Master´s program

Over the twenty one years of our FEA Master´s programs, more than 3,400 students have graduated and provided us with constant feedback on how we can improve the program year after year. For example, our syllabus has been expanded with new optional specialized modules, enhanced content, as well as an upgraded distance e-learning system. In addition, the latest versions of FEA software are always used, allowing you to bring the most recent technology into use at your job.

International FEA Master's

Furthermore, the Global interest received for this Master´s Program has motivated us to expand this program into English. By partnering with local companies who help support and promote this program within their specific regions, we are making participation and study this program possible from anywhere in the world. Thus demonstrating that UNED´s Master FEA program has obtained worldwide acceptance and prestige.

We welcome you to join us in this 22nd year of the Program.
