The Bavarian Graduate School in Computational Engineering is a master-level programm of excellence, taught in English, that has been selected in 2004 for the Bavaria’s Elite Network Initiative and receives special funding from there. he degree awarded is a “Master of Science with Honours”. This program offers special courses and intensive individual guidance for highly motivated and talented students.

This premium Master degree program is based on the existing International Master Program in Computational Engineering at Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg and is conducted in collaboration with two related programs at Technische Universität München ( CSE und COME ).

The courses offered for the elite program can be found via the information system of the university  UnivIS.

 Starting in fall semester 2008, CE students can obtain a double Master’s degree from two leading European universities

  • Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen and
  • Kungl. Tekniska Högskolan, Stockholm, Sweden.

The CE-course is supported within the European Program of Excellence Erasmus-Mundus as one of the partner programs of the Master Course Computer Simulations for Science and Engineering (COSSE).
