Overview

While the M.Sc. programme is primarily aimed at training students with professional goals in industry, business or government, the Ph.D. programme at the ICS promotes the development of new professionals interested in academic or industrial research careers. A successful Ph.D. Student will gain a broad knowledge and understanding including mathematics, informatics and computational science. Most Ph.D. students become either teaching assistants or research assistants on funded projects and are thus supported. We encourage the M.Sc. students enrolled in our AMCS programme to apply for admission in the Ph.D. programme.

The Institute of Computational Science also hosts the Swiss Graduate Programme FoMICS "Foundations of Mathematics and Informatics in Computational Science". FoMICS is an education network between Swiss Universities for training PhD students in Computational Science. It is based on the two key components mathematical modeling and high-level engineering of scientific software. FoMICS offers a curriculum comprised of foundations of mathematical models and algorithms, as well as on computing and simulation skills, which enables participating PhD students to develop tailored mathematical models and efficient software exploiting the capabilities of recent hardware environments, from local, specialized architectures to Swiss-wide large-scale HPC systems.

The Graduate Program focuses on a curriculum comprised of foundations of mathematical models and algorithms, as well as on computing and simulation skills. Participating students gain insight on the development of tailored mathematical models and efficient software exploiting the capabilities of recent hardware environments, from local, specialized architectures to Swiss-wide large-scale HPC systems. The program is structured into both block-courses and workshops taught by leading Swiss and international experts in the field. FoMICS provides complete education throughout the participating institutions, provides and fosters networking opportunities between associated faculties and PhD students. Furthermore, FoMICS provides a program of short-term scholarships to facilitate PhD students’ mobility between participating centers and institutes.
