A kick-off seminar right before the winter semester.
In addition to scientific topics, the one-week winter school offers trainings on soft-skills, such as project and people management and business development.
A two-week summer school prepares the students for the research-based training by working on scientific projects in a team.
The study programme includes three research projects, one of them being the six-month master thesis. The programme is very flexible. For the major and minor research projects, students can arrange their own schedule by attending related seminars and lectures freely.
Publication of research results and participation in conference presentations are strongly encouraged.
Each student can choose at least one supervising ASC-professor within a special mentoring program.
Mentors provide help in setting up an individualized study programme tailored to the students’ interest and career goals.
ASC-scholarship: Students are guaranteed to get a student job to cover at least a part of their cost of living.
