The GEOSIM Education Program

Mathematical modeling, computational and physical simulation take the central position in the GEOSIM education program. Ph.D. students from both geosciences and mathematics & informatics will cooperate closely on joint projects. Because of this, the curriculum consists of (mandatory) fundamental courses and summer schools which will allow the students to develop problem understanding beyond the scope of their own scientific discipline, as well as advanced courses that will guide the students towards the core scientific issues in the scope of the School as well as in their respective research projects. The course program is in English.

The monthly seminar series provides the occasion to regularly meet and discuss, while students present their work during the annual workshop.
