Mathematical-Technical Software Developer (MATSE)


The IT Center is a central IT facility of RWTH Aachen University with diverse and interesting practical tasks.

As a training company, the IT Center hires about ten new MATSE apprentices every year. This shows that the IT Center is fully convinced of the dual concept of MATSE apprenticeship! No wonder: about a quarter of the IT Center's employees have completed this dual training.

The IT Center's MATSE apprentices go through their apprenticeship at different divisions and groups. Each offers interesting practical tasks in the daily apprenticeship routine.

The Aachen training site of the MATSE apprenticeship is located at the IT Center. General information about MATSE apprenticeships can be found at
