Applied Mathematics

Applied Mathematics (formerly 'Industrial Mathematics') is a key discipline for solving real-world problems from practically all areas of our highly technical society based on the division of labour: The spectrum ranges from technical problems from the engineering sciences to business management topics such as the simulation and optimisation of production plants to the analysis of financial markets. Applied Mathematics is characterised by the combination of mathematical models with modern computer-based methods, especially from the fields of machine learning and data science. This combination enables the solution of increasingly complex problems. In addition, the programme of Applied Mathematics trains key competences that are of decisive importance in today's constantly changing job profiles: The ability to abstract, a structured approach and analytical thinking.
