Advanced mathematical modeling and high performance methods in numerical simulation open new perspectives for science, research and economy. Exploiting the capabilities of modern supercomputers, increasingly complex problems can be tackled - covering a very broad spectrum of disciplines, from exact and natural sciences to economics and social sciences, including biomedical, environmental, materials, and engineering sciences. The Institute of Computational Science (ICS) provides a unique research environment, where strong competences in modeling, simulation and information science come together in an open and application oriented atmosphere. At ICS, mathematical state-of-the-art simulation and modeling techniques meet software design and development. This specialized major aims at exploiting the unique nature of this group. Given the high ratio between the number of professors and that of students, personal assistance and mentoring is a natural part of the modern teaching environment of ICS, which also features a project-based approach ensuring continuous experience on real life problem solving based on a sound theoretical background. It is complemented by the choice of English as teaching language, state-of-the-art knowledge in methodology and development, and access to HPC resources.
The formal requirement for admission to the Master's degrees in Informatics is a Bachelor's degree from a recognised university in the field of Computer sciences, Mathematics, Physics, Electrical engineering, or related disciplines. Furthermore, good command of English is required.
