JARA-CSD - Center for Simulation and Data Sciences

 

Topic

The use of methods of mathematical modelling and numerics as well as current computational and software techniques is becoming more and more important in order to understand engineering problems and to achieve scientific progress. As the successor of the Center for Computational Engineering Science (CCES) and a number of other initiatives of the RWTH and Forschungszentrum Jülich, the CSD operates interdisciplinary activities that combine basic and applied competence in the fields of simulation sciences and data sciences.

Research Goals

The CSD tries to establish RWTH Aachen University as one of the world's leading universities in the growing field of simulation sciences in order to advance RWTH Aachen University's leading role in the engineering sciences as well as its interaction with the scientific sciences. The CSD achieves its goals primarily through externally funded cooperative research projects, seminars, workshops, working groups, publications and other scientific contacts.
