MATSE: Exams Passed, New Course Started
At the end of August 2011, 33 MATSE trainees (mathematical technical software developers) passed their final examinations. During a ceremony on 6 September 2011, they proudly received their certificates and the congratulations from representatives of Forschungszentrum Jülich, the Chamber of Commerce Aachen (IHK), and Aachen University of Applied Science (FH Aachen). More than half of the trainees achieved an overall grade of at least "good"; a grade of "excellent" was achieved by Robert Elles (PGI-JCNS-TA), Sebastian Lührs (IEK-8), and Anna Westhoff (JSC).
On 5 September 2011, 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, 22 will receive their practical training in various institutes at Forschungszentrum Jülich, while 12 students are with external partners (seven industrial companies and FH Aachen). 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.
