Technomathematics (Master)

This page contains automatically translated content.

The digitalization of the world of work is also opening up new career prospects for mathematicians. The University of Kassel is responding to this with a new Technomathematics degree program that combines computer science and engineering with mathematics.

Students who have developed an appetite for more during their bachelor's studies and are planning a career in the broad fields of industry, especially in software or research and development departments, opt for the master's program in Technomathematics. Graduates are able to recognize, classify, formulate and solve complex problems of all kinds with mathematical relevance. The study orientation in the master's program is based on the choice of mathematical focus and application subjects. The choices are: Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Environmental Engineering.

The central research areas of the Institute of Mathematics are in current areas of analysis, computer algebra, optimization, stochastics and numerics. The special feature of mathematics - and especially technomathematics - at the University of Kassel is its computer and application orientation, which is particularly evident in interdisciplinary projects with the engineering sciences. All of this is necessary, but not sufficient, as one would put it in mathematics: Personally, a high scientific and technical interest, a fundamentally analytical-logical way of thinking, stamina and preferably a good knowledge of English for dealing with technical literature are required.

On the subject of job prospects: The fact that a classic job description "mathematician*in" does not exist also results in many freedoms. In fact, technomathematics graduates are sought-after specialists in a wide variety of fields. Therefore, many doors open, especially to well-paid management positions.
