Academic programs

The German Research School for Simulation Sciences is dedicated to research and education in the applications and methods of HPC-based computer simulation in science and engineering. We support a Master’s and a doctoral program for outstanding graduate students and are aiming at training the next generation of computational scientists and engineers. Coursework and research opportunities in topic areas ranging from state-of-the-art methods to the most advanced applications of computer simulation in the disciplines science and engineering are offered.

Master's Program:

Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Simulation Sciences
Duration: 2 years (4 semesters)
All courses will be given in English
Start: each winter semester
Admission: students with a bachelor's degree in science, engineering, mathematics, or informatics are invited to apply

Applications will be accepted from January until March 1 for international applicants and until July 15 for EU applicants.

Doctoral Program:

Doctorate (Dr. rer. nat./Dr.-Ing.) in Simulation Sciences
Duration: 3 years
