About University:

The University of Kaiserslautern (German: Technische Universität Kaiserslautern, commonly referred to as TU Kaiserslautern or simply TUK, unofficially Technical University of Kaiserslautern) is a research university in Kaiserslautern, Germany.

There are numerous institutes around the university, including two Fraunhofer Institutes (IESE and ITWM), the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems (MPI SWS), the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), the Institute for Composite Materials (IVW) and the Institute for Surface and Thin Film Analysis (IFOS), all of which cooperate closely with the university.

TU Kaiserslautern is organized into 12 faculties. Approximately 14,869 students are enrolled at the moment. The TU Kaiserslautern is part of the Software-Cluster along with the Technische Universität Darmstadt, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and Saarland University. The Software-Cluster won the German government’s Spitzencluster competition, the equivalence to the German Universities Excellence Initiative for clusters.

About Scholarship:

The MIC programme was launched in 2006. Like the predecessor programmes MSc Industrial Mathematics and the Sandwich PhD programme Industrial Mathematics, it is funded by the DAAD. For students from developing countries, the programme provides the opportunity to do a PhD in applied mathematics. Each year, four to five new scholarship holders can be selected for the programme. The condition for funding is that the countries of origin of the scholarship holders are classified as developing countries according to the OECD, ie they are listed in the annually updated DAC list. The DAAD scholarship covers the cost of living, travel expenses, a health insurance subsidy, and generous support for accompanying family members.

In the programme, the doctoral candidates preferably work on mathematical modeling problems that are directly related to their home country. The optimal control of water networks or traffic flows, evacuation problems, development of earthquake-resistant concrete parts, simulation of the spread of diseases or new methods of financial and actuarial mathematics are only a few of the many fields of research. All research groups of the department accept applicants for the MIC programme.

The doctoral programme MIC is designed for three years and always starts in October. A preparatory German course in August and September is funded by the DAAD and is binding.

Admission requirements are an excellent Master’s degree in mathematics as well as very good knowledge of the English language. In addition to belonging to one of the qualifying countries of origin, the DAAD requires two years of relevant professional experience. Only applicants who have been in Germany for a maximum of one year at the time of application, ie who have been in Germany for a maximum of two years at the start of the programme, can receive funding.

The application is made via the Graduate School of the Department of Mathematics. The same regulations apply as in the doctoral programme Mathematics.
