News Concerning the MaTSE Trainees

At the end of August 2021, 27 mathematical and technical software developer (MaTSE) trainees, who started their vocational training in 2018, passed their final examinations. Despite the severe restrictions in place as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, such as basic operations mode, home office, and digital learning, the latest set of trainees achieved good results. Lucas Reichert (IEK-4) achieved the top grade “very good”, fourteen others were awarded the second best grade “good”. These newly graduated trainees increase the number of MaTSE trainees successfully trained at JSC (since 1964) to 1232.

Twenty-six of the graduates decided to stay at Forschungszentrum Jülich. After graduating with a bachelor's degree in “Applied Mathematics and Computer Science”, some of them will continue with the corresponding master's program at the Aachen University of Applied Sciences, Campus Jülich (FH Aachen).

On 1 September 2021, 26 new students began their bachelor’s degree course in “Applied Mathematics and Computer Science” at FH Aachen (Jülich) in combination with MaTSE training at Forschungszentrum Jülich. They will complete their training at various Jülich institutes. The planned duration of the vocational training and the studies combined amounts to three years.
