KIT Center MathSEE

"Mathematics in Sciences, Engineering, and Economics"

The KIT Center "MathSEE" (Mathematics in Sciences, Engineering, and Economics) pools the interdisciplinary mathematical research at KIT since October 2018. The Collaborative Research Center 1173 "Wave Phenomena: Analysis and Numerics" and other existing cooperations form the basis for the establishment of MathSEE. Our members from the career level doctoral researcher onwards work together in exchange formats and interdisciplinary research projects structured in areas of methods. Our graduate school MathSEED offers a comprehensive program for doctoral researchers and master students to foster interdisciplinary training. MathSEE offers to strengthen interdisciplinary mathematical research at KIT and its visibility.
