Within the Technomathematics specialisation, mathematical knowledge and methods will be applied in the area of finite element methods, in the simulation of technical systems and in image processing. A wide range of options are available for technical specialisations in Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. This provides excellent opportunities for starting a career in the classical engineering field, especially in fields of work with complex technical calculations and simulations. The automotive industry and its suppliers also have a growing need for technically qualified graduates with a strong knowledge of mathematics.
In your subsequent professional life, your skills will be primarily in demand when efficient, application-oriented solutions are required. Intensive practical relevance therefore has a high priority in the Applied Mathematics (MAT) degree course.
Thus, you will complete an internship of at least ten weeks at a suitable company in the region - usually in the 7th semester. This practical phase offers you the opportunity to get a realistic idea of the professional reality as well as the possibilities, limits and challenges of the intended professional field.
Under professional supervision, you learn to apply the knowledge and skills you have acquired so far in your studies in practice.
The practical phase is an essential part of the degree course; its successful completion counts as a prerequisite for admission to the bachelor’s thesis.
