Certificate Programs

A Certificate Program or Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) is an especially attractive professional development concept for companies. The format combines current scientific methods with practical applications, ensuring both an immediate and sustainable transfer of learning.

Digital city for planners and decision-makers

Understand the possibilities of interactive digital city models and innovative analysis methods. Modeling, analysis and decision-making for urban planning, construction and smart applications.

Performe better CFD simulations

Attend the course to understand the properties of flowing fluids (liquids and gases). The comprehension of mathematics, physics and numerical concepts provide a solid foundation for all users of CFD simulation.

What esocaet alumni and companies are saying

Dr.-Ing. Frank Brehmer
Managing director, ITB Ingenieurgesellschaft für technische Berechnungen mbH

The added value for us as a company lies in the fact that we were in a position to implement our first flow simulation projects immediately after the course ended. We take a very positive view of the compact course format and intensive knowledge transfer within one semester.

Dr. Cornelia Santner
Development engineer, Ansaldo Energia Switzerland AG

By attending the CAS CFD course, I was able to deepen my knowledge of flow simulation. I benefit from this every day in my job as a development engineer.

Anton Melnikow
SBS Bühnentechnik, SBS Bühnentechnik GmbH

The part-time concept allows new approaches to be used immediately in ongoing projects, and the questions that then arise can be dealt with very quickly during the in-person blocks or even via email.

Lucas Ziegler
CAE Engineer

The motivated instructors broke up the sometimes theoretical content with examples from practice or best practice methods and therefore actively contributed to us being able to apply the knowledge gained the very next day at work.

Andreas Sommer
Computational engineer

I was able to apply the newly acquired knowledge immediately in my workplace, as the topics dealt with were precisely those that I encounter in my day-to-day work as a computational engineer.

Alumni success stories

The close link between theory and practice and direct transfer of the educational content to professional life is a key advantage. How have our clients benefited from this?

Frequently asked questions

Below you will find relevant information and assistance that is frequently requested. Do you have any further questions, suggestions or requests? Then feel free to contact us.

What is the difference between a seminar and a short course?

Simulation is more than software. In a master’s module, certificate course or part-time master’s from the CADFEM university partners, you can get a glimpse behind the program interface. You learn the calculation algorithms, use analytical methods to simplify models and validate results, and understand the influence of all kinds of software parameters. The expertise you acquire will enable you to quickly produce reliable findings that answer key product improvement questions. To ensure your specialist or managerial career develops in the direction you want it to, we recommend a combination of both types of further education.

How do I register for academic professional development?

The registration and admissions process depends on the legal requirements of the respective university location. We provide all of the key information in the program descriptions as a rough guide. Additionally, we would recommend an individual consultation with a CADFEM esocaet program manager and the information webinar. 

What is so special about the further academic training offered by CADFEM esocaet?

The range of courses available from CADFEM esocaet offers flexibility and facilitates individual planning. This allows even participants not aiming for a master’s degree to take individual modules culminating in a university certificate. Different modules and programs can also be combined. CADFEM esocaet actively promotes the combining of differently focused courses at the other universities. A unique combination of practical course content in English and lessons with simulation experts from both practice and academia is on offer.

Can certificate courses also be taken as distance learning or elearning programs?

Courses are designed for physical presence to facilitate networking. Lectures are usually held in a block once or twice per month, mostly from Thursday to Saturday. On top of this, if you are taking three modules, for example, you should plan to set aside approx. 10 hours a week for self-study. Employers can plan for approx. 10 percent study time and 90 percent ongoing work.

Where can I find information on dates, costs and the admissions process?

All information on the individual programs are available in the respective course descriptions. The CADFEM esocaet team would be pleased to meet with you at your company to offer individual advice and give presentations.

How does a certificate course work?

Does this form of further education suit my goals? Find out through an info event, a taster lecture or personal discussion with the CADFEM esocaet program managers.
