BIMoS was founded in 2014 as a graduate school of the TU Berlin, which encloses all departments. As a technical university, one main focus of the TU Berlin is on natural and engineering sciences with a highly interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary component. A particularly strong emphasis has always been on integrated mathematical modeling, simulation, and optimization. The graduate school BIMoS is the natural continuation of this research profile, thus also offering prospective PhD students an internationally highly recognized and vivid research environment.


The research focus of BIMoS is on the development of methodologies based on mathematical models to solve problems of diverse application areas such as engineering. A particular emphasis will be on the following range of topics:

  • Continuous and Discrete Optimization
  • Data Science
  • Inverse Problems
  • Model Design
  • Robust and Stable Numerical Simulations

Research will be carried out in a highly interdisciplinary way by ensuring close collaboration of experts on the theoretical and application side. BIMoS offers six PhD fellowships for outstanding students holding a master’s degree. The fellowships are provided by the following faculties of the Technische Universität Berlin:

  • Faculty II "Mathematics and Natural Sciences"
  • Faculty III "Process Sciences"
  • Faculty IV "Electrical Engineering and Computer Science"
  • Faculty V "Mechanical Engineering and Transport Systems"
  • Faculty VI "Planning, Building and Environment"

Each PhD student will be supervised by a professor from TU Berlin, who is working in the general focus area of BIMoS. To ensure high quality of the supervision process, a supervision agreement will be signed by both parties. In addition, each PhD student can choose a mentor, who provides individual guidance not only concerning academic development, but also for general career advise. Due to the interdisciplinary character of BIMoS and to broaden the scientific horizon even further, this mentor will come from a different research area.
At the moment, we do not offer any fellowship.
