Vision: A world-leading CE centre
Mission: To foster a community of people who learn, train, and work together on the discovery, implementation, and application of ground-breaking computational solutions to relevant engineering challenges
Computational Engineering (CE) delivers sophisticated modelling and simulation tools to predict the behaviour of complex, real-world systems. CE has a pervasive impact on engineering design and discovery-led scientific research. It is now acknowledged to be the “third leg” of scientific enquiry, alongside experiment and theory.
GCEC is an EPSRC-supported research centre based at the University of Glasgow. GCEC provides a coherent focus and point of interaction for fundamental and applied research in computational engineering.
The objectives of GCEC are to
- pursue high-quality research in the area of computational engineering
- deliver solutions for industrial challenges of strategic importance
- foster expertise through training in computational engineering
- highlight the importance of computational engineering in science and society
