Previous years

The JSC Guest Student Programme on Scientific Computing has already been successfully running for 16 years. Since the first programme in 2000, a total of 155 students have seized the opportunity to join research teams from JSC and other institutes on the Forschungszentrum Jülich campus for ten weeks each summer. Working on challenging topical scientific projects, they gained experience with up-to-date hardware and software as well as HPC-related methods and algorithms. For many students, the programme has been the foundation for a career in HPC and the basis for fruitful continuing cooperations.
