Computational Engineering



The main focus of computational engineering is research and innovation that involves aspects of engineering, computing, information systems, and applications. The topics addressed in computational engineering are grouped into three lines of research, which unfold in projects involving both graduate (master’s and doctoral) and undergraduate students (undergraduate coursework as well as final projects).

Lines of Research

  • Information Systems and Computational Applications, in order to study, propose, and develop:

    • Reliability and Critical Security (GAS)
    • Database Systems (GAS, LTS)
