The scientific backbone of IGSSE research projects is formed by TUM’s renowned chairs and faculties with their internationally distinguished expertise in natural and engineering sciences, medicine, mathematics and computer science. More than 100 interdisciplinary project teams have been set up since the graduate school’s inauguration in October 2006. They cover research topics in the areas of Computational Science & Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Nanotechnology & Advanced Materials, as well as Energy, Geodynamics & Environment.
A typical IGSSE project team has one or more
- Principal Investigator/s (the supervisor of the doctoral candidates and head of the group) from divergent TUM faculties or a foreign university,
- Project Team Leader/s (in charge of individual projects within the group),
- Doctoral Researchers
- Associate Doctoral Researchers
- Master Students
