Master of Science
What is it?

In the Applied Mathematics master’s degree program, mathematics is taught in an application-oriented manner, but without making compromises in terms of the academic standard. Following a bachelor's degree in mathematics, you will attend compulsory courses in basic subjects (topology, functional analysis, measure theory) and can choose your additional courses relatively freely from the following thematic blocks according to your interests:

  • modelling mechanical structures,
  • financial and business mathematics,
  • dynamic systems,
  • geometry, algebra, discrete mathematics,
  • physical fields of application.
What can I do with it?

As a graduate of this degree program, you will find career opportunities in almost all sectors of industry:

  • aerospace, automotive construction, traffic planning, energy supply,
  • logistics, communication, process engineering, process planning, systems engineering,
  • regulation and control systems, robotics, sensor technology, image processing, automation,
  • materials testing, materials science, biomechanics, medical technology, nanotechnology,
  • banking and insurance, management consulting, financial supervisory authorities.

A Master's degree qualifies you for management positions in research, development and planning departments. As mathematical methods and algorithms are becoming increasingly important for the success of a company, you will have excellent career prospects.
