MATSE: Exams Passed, New Course Started
At the end of August 2012, 28 MATSE trainees (mathematical technical software developers) prepared by the JSC education team passed their final examinations. During a ceremony on 10 September 2012, they proudly received congratulations from representatives of Forschungszentrum Jülich, the Chamber of Commerce Aachen (IHK), and Aachen University of Applied Science (FH Aachen). More than 60 percent of the trainees achieved an overall grade of at least "good"; a grade of "excellent" was achieved by Martin Vieten (IEK), Sarah Haas (IEK), Marcel Huysegoms (INM), Ingo Heimbach (PGI) and Florian Rhiem (PGI). The last two scored 96 percent and are the best among the 127 examinees in the district of Aachen.
On 3 September 2012, 34 new students started the bachelor’s course in Scientific Programming at FH Aachen in combination with the training course as a MATSE at Forschungszentrum Jülich. Of these students, 25 will receive their practical training in various institutes at Forschungszentrum Jülich, while nine students are with external partners (six industrial companies). Both the vocational training and academic studies are designed to take three years. The curriculum and further information can be found at http://www.fz-juelich.de/matse
