The International Max Planck Research School for Advanced Methods in Process and Systems Engineering in Magdeburg was founded in 2007 and is a joint initiative of the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems and the Otto von Guericke University. Its main goal is to provide high-level scientific training and support PhD projects through an innovative concept which combines cutting-edge mathematical and systems-oriented engineering research. We are driven by challenging questions arising from the analysis, design and optimization of chemical and biochemical processes.
Our graduate school offers a structured PhD program with close supervision and broad scientific, professional and social networks. A diverse curriculum composed of both scientific and soft skills qualifies our students to join the next generation of leading scientists and professionals.
