Research-oriented Mathematics

Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.)

Nowadays innovation is based to a much greater extent than it was a few decades ago on the application of mathematical findings. The importance of mathematicians in the workplace is therefore on the increase. They can provide cognitive working methods, analyse complex processes and significant correlations in the design of process models and algorithms and also implement them in computer systems.

The study programme in mathematics trains the ability to design and analyse models of complex issues. This includes an understanding of mathematical theories and methods as well as the study of an applied area such as computer science or physics.

Accordingly, the contents of the bachelor's degree program at the BTU is aimed at acquiring mathematical literacy and skills in the principal application areas of mathematics, such as numeric, optimization, stochastic and discrete mathematics.

An ideal continuation is the Master's degree in Applied Mathematics.
