About us

The German Research School for Simulation Sciences is a joint graduate school of RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich with the aim to train the next generation of computational scientists and engineers. Our activities comprise a Master’s as well as a doctoral program. About 40 research groups and institutes in Aachen and Jülich are associated with the German Research School for Simulation Sciences and are currently involved in research with intensive use of computer simulation techniques. Simultaneously, the scientists make great efforts to advance existing methods and to develop new techniques and simulation tools. All research groups have access to the most advanced computing equipment like massively parallel supercomputers or advanced visualization methods.

The German Research School for Simulation Sciences has been officially founded end of October 2007 in the legal form of a GmbH (limited liability company) by the two partners RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich. We are funded in equal parts by the following five partners:

 Federal Republic of Germany (BMBF)
 Federal State of North Rhine-Westfalia (MIWFT)
 Helmholtz Association
 RWTH Aachen University
 Forschungszentrum Jülich
