Scientific Computing and Computational Mathematics

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.

Information Session by the Program Counsellor

The faculty and the Heidelberg Graduate School MathComp are jointly inviting all students of the program to participate in the

Information Session & Welcome • Master's Program Scientific Computing
Thursday • October 13, 2022 • 2 - 4 pm • Location: Seminar Room C, Mathematikon, Im Neuenheimer Feld 205, 69120 Heidelberg

During this event information will be provided regarding the upcoming semester including:

  • Course registration
  • Selection of modules
  • Application areas
