Qualification & Career

JARA CSD puts a great emphasis on training at all career levels. Through the efforts in research-oriented teaching, JARA CSD members educate and stimulate the next generation of interdisciplinary simulation and data science specialists and help them achieve their full potential.

In the School for Simulation and Data Science (SSD) we train the next generation of young scientists in the area of simulation and data sciences on severals levels: providing programs for Bachelor and Master’s students, doctoral candidates, and postdoctoral researchers as well as support for junior research group leaders.

Bachelor and Master Studies

By successfully establishing timely majors (e.g., Computational Engineering Science BS and MS, Simulation Sciences MS) JARA CSD brings together passionate teachers from RWTH and FZJ and attract the strongest students, nationally and internationally.

Graduate program

In our graduate schools we train researchers at the doctoral level. We mentor postdocs and early stage researchers and our graduates become leaders in industry and academia. Through our diverse public programs (e.g., CAMMP) we reach out to the general public, with a focus on high-school students, to inform them about the importance of computing in general, and Simulation & Data Science in particular.
