Industrial/Applied Mathematics (Bachelor)

Mathematics is a key discipline in virtually all areas of our society: Mathematical know-how is required both in more technical disciplines such as the development of products, forecasting the weather or stabilizing energy networks, and in more economics-oriented issues such as the planning, simulation and control of production facilities and traffic networks. For example, well-planned routes in delivery traffic help to keep environmental pollution low. Only mathematical concepts and models enable the solution of increasingly complex problems.

Fields of study

The degree program in Business / Technomathematics offers you the opportunity to choose between the following fields of study:

Structure of the study

The development of recent years has increased the importance of mathematics, but at the same time changed the professional requirement profile. The successful handling of challenging practical problems requires both the mastery of a wide range of mathematical methods and the ability to collaborate and exchange ideas with scientists from other disciplines, including digitally. The concept of the Clausthal program in Business/Technomathematics is tailored precisely to these requirements: In the bachelor's program, students receive basic training in the mathematical disciplines of analysis, linear algebra, numerical mathematics, stochastics, statistics and optimization, as well as in computer science and engineering. In the fifth and sixth semesters, students can choose from a wide range of elective subjects and test their acquired knowledge in an interdisciplinary internship.
