Munich Centre of Advanced Computing

The "Munich Centre of Advanced Computing (MAC)" is a research consortium which has been established at TUM to bundle research activities related to computational science and engineering (CSE) as well as high-performance computing (HPC) - across disciplines, across departments, and across institutions. In MAC, seven of TUM's departments and other Munich research institutions (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, Max-Planck institutes, the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities) - see Participating Institutions - as well as TUM's international partners such as KAUST, the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, join their forces to ensure the sustainable usage of current and future HPC architectures for the most relevant and most challenging CSE applications.


MAC is associated to TUM's International Graduate School of Science and Engineering (IGSSE), and determinedly follows the IGSSE concept for structured PhD education.
All PhD students in the MAC projects are IGSSE members, and participate in IGSSE's research training program.
