About the Training Group MATSE

  Training Group MATSE Copyright: © IT Center

The MATSE training group has a dual role in the IT Center: we organize the theoretical lessons of mathematical-technical software developers (MATSE) for all apprenticeship companies in Aachen and cooperate closely with the Applied Mathematics and Computer Science program of the Aachen University of Applied Sciences. And we educate MATSE ourselves.

We maintain and further develop all software for the organization of the MATSE apprenticeship. Our speciality is the "MATSE Dienste" - a management platform for apprentices and educators.

This means for you: You are both - an apprentice and directly involved in the design of your own apprenticeship.
