Built upon project teams operating on cutting-edge science at the interface of science and engineering, the IGSSE combines academic excellence with high-profile doctoral education. Here, young scientists help create new paths of scientific thinking and simultaneously benefit from an outstanding training program.

Today, challenging research projects demand scientists who are trained to think and work in interdisciplinary collaborations. With the IGSSE, the Technische Universität München (TUM) responds to the new prerequisites for successful careers in both academia and industry.

Within its second funding period, IGSSE introduces Focus Areas bundling topically related project teams that are expected to act as incubators for research fields of emerging importance.

About us

IGSSE integrates Natural and Engineering Sciences through graduate and postgraduate education rooted in a strong research foundation.


Outstanding graduates from all over the world are invited to apply for membership in our program. There are diverse opportunities for young researchers to join an existing or a new project team.


The talents of our doctoral candidates and the internationally acknowledged expertise of our senior scientists define the quality of the IGSSE. They lay the foundation for a truly interdisciplinary and excellent doctoral education at our graduate school.


More than 70 interdisciplinary project teams have been set up since IGSSE’s inauguration in October 2006. These teams are a unique opportunity for doctoral candidates and senior scientists to explore cutting-edge research topics at the interface of science and engineering.


IGSSE's structured Research Training Program (RTP) promotes our doctoral candidates´ personality and broadens their scientific qualifications beyond the scope of their individual research projects.
