Master Program: MSc Scientific Computing

Applied Mathematics meets Computer Science

Scientific Computing is the challenging combination of applied mathematics and computer science to solve application problems by means of numerical methods. The program, run by the Faculty for Mathematics and Computer Science in close collaboration with the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing (IWR) teaches students both the theoretical concepts of computer-based mathematical modelling and the practical aspects of realising complex algorithms in scientific software. By studying an application area as a minor subject, the education is focussed on real-world problems and the interdisciplinary communication that shapes the modern world of research & development.
