Computational Engineering and Physics

The role of  modelling and simulation is steadily increasing as an integral tool of industrial product development.  The ongoing revolution of data and digitalization is expanding this trend outside the traditional engineering sciences to all aspects of the society. A successful research in this field requires thorough knowledge in the underlying sciences, mathematics, data mining, physics as well as programming.

Areas of research at the Computational Engineering and Physics include applied mathematics, machine vision and pattern recognition, various topics of material and computational physics as well as optics. We develop algorithms for data-driven problems, with applications in industry, business analytics, remote sensing and large-scale data-assimilation problems.
