Successful start for International Graduate School of Metrology

The PTB and the Technical University of Braunschweig have together within the past year launched the Internationale Graduiertenschule für Metrologie (International Graduate School of Metrology), IGSM – with the aim of concentrating the diverse activities of TU and PTB for the education of candidates for a doctor‘s degree in the broad field of metrology. Now after two semesters, the project shows an impressive result. What is offered extends from research work in the laboratory, to join courses in English, and beyond to internships in industry. And also the travel funds for attending conferences, made available by the State of Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony), as well as the full-time scholarships for students from all over the world has met with great interest. In case of successful evaluation of the previous work of the IGSM, the State of Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony) will extend the funding so that TU and PTB will be able to continue their joint activities within the scope of the IGSM in the next few years.
