HGS MathComp - Where Methods Meet Applications

The Heidelberg Graduate School of Mathematical and Computational Methods for the Sciences (HGS MathComp) is the only graduate school in Germany to focus on the complex topic of Scientific Computing. Placed in a vibrating research environment, the school is funded by the German Excellence Initiative and offers a uniquely structured interdisciplinary education for PhD students. The program enables students to pursue innovative PhD projects with a strong application-oriented focus anywhere from mathematics, physics and chemical engineering sciences to cultural heritage.

Members of HGS MathComp are top experts in their fields and work on projects that combine mathematical methodology with topical research issues. Individual mentoring and career-building programs ensure that graduates acquire all qualifications for top positions in industry and science. The HGS MathComp is part of the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing (IWR) and located at Heidelberg University. [More...]

Curriculum Winter Semester 2019 / 2020


Overview [Curriculum] [Events]

International Master Program "Scientific Computing"

The   Faculty for Mathematics and Computer Science at Heidelberg University is offering an international master course "Scientific Computing" starting in the winter Term (October) and summer term (April). The program combines the development of methods and algorithms in Applied Mathematics, the implementation of these methods using modern Computer Science technology and the application to real-world problems. 

The program is designed in cooperation with   HGS MathComp, the graduate school for mathematical and computational modeling at the   Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing (IWR) at Heidelberg University. Top students in the first year course will get an invitation to join the graduate school for the second master year, opening the possibility to a direct integration into the HGS MathComp PhD program, a master course directly leading to a PhD project (research oriented master track).   [More...]
