Bachelor Mathematical Engineering

General informations

Courses of studies: Mathematical Engineering with the following fields of study:
  • Electrical engineering and information technology,
  • Mechanical engineering,
  • Process engineering

In cooperation with the faculties of Electrical engineering and information technology, Mechanical engineering and  Process and system technology.

The choice of one of the courses of study is made at the beginning of the second year of studies, due to a high proportion of general engineering subjects, it is possible to decide on the degree programme at the beginning of the second year of studies but  ncan be changed before the beginning of the third academic year without great additional effort.

Study objective: The Bachelor's programme in Mathematical Engineering is interdisciplinary and research-oriented. Students acquire sound knowledge in both engineering and mathematics. Two modelling modules are a special feature of the new programme and provide special training in interdisciplinary work. Skills in programming and the use of mathematical-technical software are also taught, but not in the foreground of the study programme. Graduates are both engineers and mathematicians..​
Degree: Bachelor of Science (B. Sc.)
Standard period of study: 7 semester
Start of studies: Winter semester
Entry requirements: Higher education entrance qualification (e. g. Abitur) or relevant subject-specific higher education entrance qualification
Application: without restriction on admission
Application deadline: 15. September (for applicants with a German school leaving certificate, Application at the University of Magdeburg)
15. Juli (for applicants with an international school-leaving certificate, application via uni-assist)
Career fields / subsequent master programs: The degree qualifies you for a direct career start. Maths engineers can be employed, for example, in the development departments of the following branches of industry:​
  • Electronics
  • Car Manufacturing and Supporters
  • Communication and security technology
  • Plant and apparatus engineering
  • Foodstuffs and luxury foods
In addition, the degree enables students to take up a master's degree in mathematics and, depending on the specialisation of an engineering science.

Courses of studies

  • Electrical engineering and information technology plays an important role in many industrial and service sectors: in classical electrical engineering, energy technology and electronics as well as in automotive engineering, railway technology, medical technology and the IT and telecommunications industry.
  • Mechanical engineering deals with the design and manufacture of vehicles, machines, apparatus and plants, with material flow technology as well as with the development, processing and testing of new materials.

  • Process engineering deals with the development and realization of ecologically compatible material conversion processes, which produce valuable products from raw materials with the help of physical, biological or chemical effects. For example, fine chemicals are turned into pharmaceuticals, petroleum into functional plastics, rock into building materials and glasses, ore into metals, waste into recycled materials and energy, sand into silicon chips and agricultural raw materials into foodstuffs and luxury foods.
