Dual study model Applied Mathematics (Master)

The subject of the 4-semester (7th - 10th semesters) dual study model Master Applied Mathematics (M. Sc.) are the modern application fields of mathematics in the areas of:

The most important information is summarized in the Study programm flyer (in German only).

Interlocking of theory and practical phases

The dual study model Applied Mathematics, which will be offered from the summer semester 2023, is integrated into the regular Master's program. The students of the dual study programs study in the theory phases together with the regular students in the semester association and work in the cooperating company during the lecture-free periods.

In addition, the dual student completes the following practical phases in the cooperating company:

  •     in the context of projects in the 7th or 8th semester as well as in the 9th semester
  •     in the 10th semester for the preparation of the bachelor thesis.

The courses are held in German.

The master's degree opens up good opportunities on the labor market, a higher starting salary and access to management positions. It entitles the holder to enter the higher service of the civil service career in the federal and state governments. For those interested in science, it offers the opportunity to deepen fields of study in a subsequent doctoral program and thus pursue an academic career in research and teaching. The degree program qualifies students for the following professional positions or for activities in the following professional fields, among others: Analysts, system architects, controllers, consulting and management, software development, risk management, production control, production inspection, scientific activities in a technical context (e.g. in research departments of banks, insurance companies and industrial companies).

The standard admission requirement for the master's program is a good or very good qualified bachelor's or diploma degree in the field of mathematics with a minimum of 180 credit points. In the case of degrees that do not meet the above criteria, the examination board conducts individual aptitude and assessment tests. A detailed description of the admission requirements can be found in the Special regulations of the examination board (BBPO) (in german only).

Interested students must apply by a deadline. Admission is governed by §6 in conjunction with Annex 4 of the Special Provisions of the Examination Regulations for the Master's program. There is no restriction on the number of students admitted.

The required qualifications and competencies are provided by the modules of the Master's program in Applied Mathematics. These study units may include lectures, project work or laboratory phases.

The BBPO and module manual were officially published in the Hochschulanzeiger 2022.
