Offered by: Mining & Materials Engineering (Faculty of Engineering)


Mining & Materials Engineering : Introduction to modelling and simulation techniques in materials engineering: quantum mechanics and atomistic simulation (i.e. Monte-Carlo and Molecular Dynamics). These modelling and simulations methods provide new and efficient tools to examine and predict various physical and mechanical properties of materials, enabling bottom-up design of materials and structures starting from quantum and atomistic level. These computational tools play an increasingly important role in modern materials engineering. Fundamental theories behind materials modelling and hands-on training on various modelling software.
