We offer a high-level Course Program with the aim to impart to the students a specialized knowledge in various aspects of PDEs. A total amount of 18 ECTS points is required for graduation.
The PhD students have to attend the weekly DK Seminar, where they report once per semester on their scientific progress. This includes also a feedback part, where the audience discusses the strengths/weaknesses of the talk as well as possible improvements.
Mini-courses, WorkshopsThe course program will be supplemented by mini-courses on advanced scientific topics relevant for the Doctoral Program. These are held by researchers which are invited through our Guest Program. Moreover, there will be workshops organized by faculty members of the DK. All activities will be announced on the webpage, see Scientific Events.
Mathematics for Industry Study GroupIt is mandatory for the PhD students to participate to one of such events, which intend to transfer technology and knowledge between academic mathematicians and industry. They take place several times per year at various places; see maths-in-industry.org for the schedule.
Stay abroadWe strongly encourage long-term research stays (6-12 months) of the PhD students at partner institutes e.g. the University of Cambridge and the King's College London. The place and length of the stay will be arranged by the advisor individually with the student in order to fit best her/his needs.
