Industrial/Applied Mathematics *

The importance of mathematics for business and science has increased significantly in recent decades, but at the same time the requirements profile for mathematicians has also changed. The successful handling of challenging application problems requires both the mastery of a broad spectrum of mathematical methods and the ability to collaborate with scientists from other disciplines. At the same time, mathematicians should be able to implement their ideas on computers using state-of-the-art computer science methods.

Jobs and careers

There is great demand for graduates with mathematically well-founded interdisciplinary knowledge. For graduates with such an education there are excellent career opportunities, e.g. in the automotive and aviation industries, in materials and environmental research, in telecommunications or at energy suppliers.

Program structure

In the first three semesters you will choose six courses from the fields of Applied Mathematics: Numerical Mathematics, Mathematical Modeling, Scientific Computing, Optimization, Stochastics and Statistics, as well as courses from Computer Science and Engineering. In this way, you can optimally focus your studies on your interests. Our student advisor will be happy to help you with a reasonable choice of courses. In the third semester, you can apply and test your knowledge in an interdisciplinary internship with an associated seminar. This prepares you optimally for your final Master's thesis in the last semester and your later professional activity.
