The Master's in "Mathematics in Science and Engineering" is a full-time degree program that usually takes two years to complete. Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics or an equivalent qualification in a similar field of study.

Aim of the study:
The master's program "Mathematics in Science and Engineering" is oriented towards students who want to receive a high-profile education in the fields of mathematical modeling, numerical analysis, applied analysis, optimization, probability theory, and computer science. Graduates of this program are qualfied to assess and solve problems in engineering and natural sciences by developing sophisticated mathematical models and putting them into practice. They can analyze, explain, and share the complex results with their team in an interdisciplinary, communicative and highly productive way.

Study program:
This program places an emphasis on basic mathematical subjects such as numerical analysis and optimization. Other core subjects include applied analysis and computational mathematics. Students may also attend extracurricular seminars to acquire and enhance soft skills, such as speaking and presentation techniques.

Practical minor subject:
The broad education in mathematics is supplemented by a practical minor subject, e.g. Physics, Structural Mechanics, Aerodynamics, or Biomedical Engineering. Students acquire a profound basic knowledge of the subject, which prepares them for working in an interdisciplinary team.

Study abroad:
Students enrolled in this master’s program are given the opportunity to study abroad for one or two semesters at one of the many partner institutions located in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Asia, and Europe. Students interested in going abroad receive individual counseling and support from experienced departmental coordinators. The recognition of modules completed during a study abroad is subject to special regulations as part of the general examination regulations.

The master’s program “Mathematics in Science and Engineering” allows students to pursue a career in the interdisciplinary environment of the software and technology industry, companies engaged in development, or research institutes with respective scientific interests.
