Admission to the AICES Graduate School

The AICES doctoral program is open to a limited number of extremely well qualified students with a substantial background in Computational Engineering Science, Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering, Natural Sciences, or Geosciences.

Holders of bachelor's degrees applying for the combined master's and doctoral program should submit their application by December 15 for admission in the summer semester and by April 15 for admission in the winter semester. Candidates holding master's degrees (or equivalent) may apply for direct admission to the doctoral phase; applications may be submitted at any time.

We guarantee those students admitted to AICES a HIWI job for one year during the Master's phase with an option to extend for a further year. Doctoral candidates receive a stipend of € 2,000 per month during the three-year program. Support for other education-related expenses, such as travel funds to enable collaborative research visits, is also available to AICES-funded fellows.
