The CoTeSys Graduate Center (CGC) is part of the TUM Graduate School. It is under this umbrella that the graduate centers of the various TUM faculties and research projects are organized.



The program offers doctoral candidates a qualification which is an ideal addition to their individual research project. The participants will be qualified in terms of research and personality.

The CoTeSys Graduate Center belongs to the so called “Thematic Graduate Centers” that are interdisciplinary doctorate programs at the TUM, usually spanning across faculties, which set their own multidisciplinary focus points.
