Internationale Promotionsprogramme im ZESS 


The Centre for Sensor Systems (ZESS) at the University of Siegen yearly awards selected scholarships to individuals studying sensor systems and closely related topics. The recipients chosen each year by our dedicated scholarship committee demonstrate excellence in the field of sensor systems. These students come from various disciplines in natural sciences and engineering, but they are guided by a common goal: a thorough drive for knowledge in sensor systems.

Since the ZESS Scholarship Program began in 2002, it has awarded more than 200 students with aspirations in sensor systems to further the advancement of this research area. Many of these students have successfully continued their careers to become academic and industry leaders and stay in close contact with us. ZESS is dedicated to assist highly promising students and recognises the achievements of graduating high school seniors, undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students.

In the context of rapid changes of our planet Earth, explosive population growth, accelerating industrialization, especially in the emerging countries, increasing exploitation of resources, serious natural hazards, recent natural disasters, and, importantly, the growing number of complex systems interacting with their environments, the European Training Network (ETN) MENELAOSNT addresses the ever more significant problem of scientifically and technologically exploring the world on micro- and macroscopic scale. The research and development goal is to provide scientists with deeper insights, better understanding and more information to understand and monitor the basic processes and environments in order to predict and possibly control critical evolutions. This would support decision makers with more sophisticated and reliable information for deciding on sustainable measures. MENELAOSNT addresses societal key challenges, e.g., sustainable agriculture and forestry, bioeconomy, environmental changes, resource efficiency, as well as protecting freedom and security of the European society. 


MENELAOSNT applies Novel Technologies to realize multimodal - multi sensor data fusion to optimally combine the information, delivered by different sensors (in-situ/remote, optical/non optical) on different scales, with different resolutions and with different reliability. Traditional remote observation, as well as local (in-situ based) approaches have demonstrated to be insufficient to cope with the ample but very tailored information need of the decision-making bodies.

International Postgraduate Programme
Research School for „Multi Modal Sensor Systems for Environmental Exploration and Safety (MOSES)“

2008 - 2017

Das international ausgerichtete Promotionsprogramm des ZESS ermöglichte hochqualifizierten Bewerbern eine Forschungsausbildung im Bereich der sensorgestützen Entwicklung und Datenverarbeitung an der Universität Siegen. Zusammen mit den Netzwerkpartnern Fraunhofer FHR und Fraunhofer FKIE bot das ZESS den Doktoranden die Möglichkeit auf Basis einer stipendienbasierten Finanzierung unabhängig auf ihrem Arbeitsgebiet zu forschen.

GRK - Imaging New Modalities

2009 - 2018

Das durch die DFG geförderte Graduiertenkolleg 1564 bot ein strukturiertes interdisziplinäres Promotionsprogramm im Anwendungsgebiet der zivilen Sicherheit mit den Bereichen Personenerkennung/Biometrie, Materialanalyse und die Szenenüberwachung. Die Forschungstätigkeit umfasste den gesamten Bereich von der Sensorentwicklung, Sensordatenverarbeitung bis zur Sensordatenanalyse. Besonderer Fokus lag dabei auf neuartigen Sensorelementen wie der Photonic Mixing Device (PMD) Technologie, spektral erweiterte Sensoren im Bereich der THz-Strahlung und spektral hoch auflösenden Sensoren für sichtbares Licht (colorimetrische Arrays). Sowohl monomodale als auch multimodale Methoden zur effizienten und robusten Informationsgewinnung wurden erforscht.
