Earliest start date
At present, with the rapid evolution of engineering and applied sciences, the need to train specialists in the modeling and numerical simulation of processes that come from the industrial or business field is evident, so that, in these fields, promote from the University the transfer of knowledge and the incorporation of doctors to the R & D & i departments, with training aimed at optimizing processes, reducing costs, improving the quality of products, designing new technologies, increasing safety, reducing environmental pollution, etc.
The relevance of the lines of research on which the program focuses is evidenced in the scientific productivity of the responsible research groups, which can be assessed, for example, in terms of six-year research periods, supervised theses and publications in JCR journals. The proposed offer is adapted to the action consisting of the conformation of a specialized and competitive postgraduate offer with respect to the university, national and international environment, increasing the social prestige of postgraduate studies. The proposed offer is intended to reinforce the prestige of the research career of the groups that lead the program in the three Galician universities. The incorporation of male and female doctors to companies will be promoted in order to extend their capacity beyond teaching and research, in order to promote productive activity. Likewise, the proposal is consistent with the necessary modification of the resource management patrons, seeking to optimize their use, through internal and external collaboration formulas.
