Master's Mathematics in Science and Engineering

Are you attracted to the way of thinking in the engineering and natural sciences? Do you want to convert problems in the field into mathematical models? Then why not use mathematics to take up the challenge of putting innovative ideas into practice, and drive research and development forward? In the Mathematics in Science and Engineering Master’s program you learn everything in four semesters that you need to work in the interdisciplinary field of software and technology, in development departments at large corporations, as well as at research institutes specializing in the natural and engineering sciences.

Major fields of study

Areas such as mathematical model building, numerical analysis, applied analysis, optimization, stochastics and informatics are all central to the Mathematics in Science and Engineering Master’s program. Having chosen an associated area of application in the engineering or natural sciences, students acquire solid foundational knowledge that prepares them for future work in interdisciplinary teams. Seminars on topics such as rhetoric and presentation techniques are also permanent components of this Master’s program.
