International Master's in Theoretical & Practical Application of
Finite Element Method and CAE Simulation
23rdEdition. 2017


Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) use is growing widely in today´s manufacturing world.

Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) use is growing widely in today´s manufacturing world. Its use has enabled designers and engineers to drastically reduce product development cost and time while improving the safety, comfort, and durability of the products they produce. The "real world" predictive capability of CAE tools has progressed to the point where much of the design verification is now done using computer simulations rather than physical prototype testing. The industry was expected to grow to over 5 billion/yr. in revenues by 2013.

As use of CAE expands, there is a growing need for additional training and certification for both recent technical graduates and working professionals in the proper use and implementation of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) in the workplace.

Twenty two years of our FEA Master´s program

Over the twenty two years of our FEA Master´s programs, more than 3,600 students have graduated and provided us with constant feedback on how we can improve the program year after year. For example, our syllabus has been expanded with new optional specialized modules, enhanced content, as well as an upgraded distance e-learning system. In addition, the latest versions of FEA software are always used, allowing you to bring the most recent technology into use at your job.

International FEA Master's

Furthermore, the Global interest received for this Master´s Program has motivated us to expand this program into English. By partnering with local companies who help support and promote this program within their specific regions, we are making participation and study this program possible from anywhere in the world. Thus demonstrating that UNED´s Master FEA program has obtained worldwide acceptance and prestige.

We welcome you to join us in this 23rd year of the Program.

2017 edition NEWS!

- CivilFEM powered by Marc professional release: Due to the strengthened partnership between UNED and Ingeciber regarding FEA and CivilFEM development, new Master´s students who choose CivilFEM powered by Marc in the Construction branch will get a 50% discount on training material fees. Registered students in previous editions of the Master´s using CivilFEM powered by Marc will continue to receive a 100% discount on training material fees. More info about CivilFEM at

- ICAEEC - International online CAE Education CENTER : ICAEEC continues to improve its training methodology. ICAEEC has established the open enrollment/on demand registration procedure, therefore students are able to start any course whenever is convenient. All the courses start every 15 days, on the first and fifteenth day of each month. More info about ICAEEC at

- Module L - Scientific programming language: Python for Engineers. Available in the 2017 Master´s edition. Python programming language is already a standard tool in those fields of science in which it is necessary to use numerical computation. Although its penetration into the field of engineering has taken longer, its use is growing thanks to CAE tools as diverse as CivilFem, Marc and Abaqus employing it as an integrated language for macro development (scripting).

- modeFRONTIER: The student will be able to use modeFRONTIER in the Master's Final Project. modeFRONTIER, developed by ESTECO is an integration platform for multi-objective and multi-disciplinary optimization. More info about modeFRONTIER here.
