Various programmes are offered for Bachelor's students entering the Master's phase, e.g.:
- Master in Computational Engineering Science (consecutive, requires a Bachelor in Computational Engineering) with mandatory courses e.g. in computer science, mathematics, process systems engineering, materials science
- Master of Simulation Sciences (non-consecutive) in cooperation with GRS, with mandatory courses e.g. in physics, computer science, numerical methods
The time required to complete a doctorate starting with a Bachelor's degree is shortened in the AICES programme by a novel advisory concept in which doctoral candidates are supervised by both a senior faculty member and a junior research group leader at the advanced postdoctoral or junior professor level.
All selected applicants receive a research assistantship for one year during the Master's phase with the option to extend for a further year upon positive evaluation, and a stipend of 2,000 EUR per month during the doctoral phase.
Forms of assessment
For the Master's degree: written and oral examinations, project work
For the doctoral degree: doctoral thesis and defence
The scientific focus is on modelling, simulation, and optimisation, with a common emphasis on the multiscale and multiphysics nature of most problems in the application areas: materials science, chemical engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, and geoscience.
