Mathematische Modellierung (Bachelor of Science)

Complex networked systems from the fields of natural science, life sciences, technology or organization and logistics are all around us and define modern, high-tech daily life. Questions thus arise relating to the mathematical description of these systems and their use to produce simulations for forecasting and also to identify parameters, optimizing systems, playing through ‘what would happen if’ scenarios and providing decision-making support to users.

In addition to the fundamentals of mathematics, physics and information processing, the basic six-semester Bachelor’s degree program in Mathematischer Modellierung conveys the basic knowledge and concepts of modeling as well as simulation and experimentation. Students can start to specialize by studying an elective subject. An internship module provides students with an insight into the working world even before they have gained their first professional qualification and can also help them select a topic for the concluding Bachelor’s dissertation. Modules relating to modern scientific software packages and the basics of communication as well as a course in ‘scientific English’ round off the degree program.

The language of instruction is German.
