The Master of Science in Mechanics of Materials and Structures (MMS) is an official Master’s degree of the European Higher Education Area. The master MMS is aimed at students who wish to develop their knowledge and skills in the field of the mechanical behaviour of materials and structures. The objective of this Master of Science is to link the current knowledge of theories of the behaviour of materials with the most innovative techniques in structural engineering.
The Master od Science in Mechanics of Materials and Structures is organized in four modules:
Computation Mechanical Design
The modules of the Master share a common background on Solid Mechanics and Computational Methods while providing a coherent specialisation. The student should select one of these modules to define the subjects he will follow.
The syllabus of each Module of the Master in Mechanics of Materials and Structures (Composites, Structures, Solid Mechanics, Computation Mechanical Design) places special emphasis on computational techniques, mechanics of materials, advanced structural design, experimental techniques and mechanical optimisation.
The Master of Mechanics of Materials and Structures (60 ECTS) may be taken full-time in one year or part-time over two years.
The MMS receives an AQU accreditation of Excellence
An External Evaluation Committee composed of 8 representatives from Universities, the business, and the Quality Agency of the Catalan University system (AQU) awarded the MMS master the AQU accreditation of Excellence in November 2015. The accreditation verified the compliance with the AQU accreditation guide for official Bachelor and Master Degrees.
The Committee evaluated altogether 8 Bachelor and Master Programs of the Polytechnic School of the Girona University. All courses received the accreditation, but only two got the mention of Excellence.
