About Us

Our institute, founded by Prof. Behr in October 2004, was initially located at Melaten in the Herwart-Opitz-Haus, Steinbachstraße 53B. In May 2009, we moved to the Rogowski building in Schinkelstraße 2 where we can be found together with the other CCES institutes. We occupy the second floor.

Currently, our staff numbers 27 people; nine non-scientific co-workers, fifteen doctoral students, one postdoc, one chief engineer and of course one Professor.

Moreover, we are a member of the Center for Computational Engineering Science (CCES), the Virtual Reality Center Aachen and the graduate school Aachen Institute for Advanced Study in Computational Engineering Science (AICES), which has been founded in 2006 in the Excellence Initiative of the German government. AICES offers a new doctoral program for Bachelor and Master students enabling a shortened and attractive path to the doctorate. It is a common project of 28 institutes coming from eight different departments and divisions of RWTH Aachen. Furthermore, we are affiliated with the German Research School and the Forschungszentrum Jülich. In 2010 we were awarded the FAMOS prize for a family-friendly working environment. Additionally, we foster a high level of internationality at our institute, for example reflected in the numerous foreign students preparing their theses under our supervision.
