Technomathematics, B.Sc.

Program overview

Mathematics is one of the key disciplines of contemporary science. Mathematical methods are part of the further development of nearly all science fields. This extends to not only the natural sciences and engineering but also linguistics, social sciences, medicine, and psychology. Technomathematics focuses on technical-mathematical methods used at the intersection of mathematics and engineering. In the math component of the study program, students learn mathematical theory, methods, and skills. Additionally, they study interdisciplinary technical content from engineering and choose a focus in one of the following fields: mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, transportation engineering, or physical engineering. These interdisciplinary skills enable them to use math in specific fields of application of engineering and in industry.

Admission requirements

As for every other bachelor’s degree program at TU Berlin, applicants must possess a university entrance qualification certificate to apply. Generally, the Abitur serves as the university entrance qualification certificate. If you do not have a formal university entrance qualification, you may still be able to study at TU Berlin if you can provide proof of certain professional qualifications. You can find further information about the application and admission requirements

The Technomathematics bachelor’s study program is taught in German. If you are applying with a foreign school-leaving certificate, you must provide proof of German skills at a specific level. This is a prerequisite for admission. Knowledge of English is useful as some courses/modules are offered in English. However, it is not a condition for admission to studies.


Program structure

There is a proposed course schedule for the degree program. This is a recommendation for how to complete the degree program within the standard period of study of six semesters. It provides an example of which modules to take in which semesters. While this proposed course schedule is ideal on paper, it is not mandatory. It’s simply an example of how to successfully schedule and shape your studies. You can find the proposed course schedule in the study and examination regulations. The most current version of the regulations applies to applicants.

Content and modules

The bachelor’s degree program in Technomathematics consists of various modules. A module combines curriculum content relating to a certain topic. Modules often include various study and teaching formats such as lectures, practical tutorials, seminars, and practical projects. Students are required to earn a specific number of credit points and complete certain coursework and assessments in each module.

You can find a module list which offers a current overview of all the modules in TU Berlin’s module transfer system (MTS). In the MTS you have an overview of which modules are mandatory for your degree program and which are elective. Detailed module descriptions provide information about the content, learning objectives, participation requirements, workload, type of assessment, and much more. The module list is based on the study and exam regulations.

Internships

During their studies, all students are required to complete a non-university internship lasting at least 140 hours. Further information can be found in the study program’s internship regulations.

Stays abroad

The study program structure provides an opportunity for students to complete a stay abroad within the standard period of study. The Faculty has staff to assist you with selecting a university and putting together a schedule. You can obtain general information about stays abroad from the TU Berlin International Office (study abroad) and Career Service (internships abroad).  



Acquired skills

The objective of the bachelor's study program is to teach students mathematical methods and skills. Students learn to implement these in fields of application in technology and engineering. During the program, students learn how to analyze concrete problems and reduce them to a mathematical form. They are also able to use or further develop existing methods to work out and implement solutions, particularly by using computers. Our graduates have a firm grasp and understanding of the theory, methods, and skills of calculus, linear algebra, computer-oriented mathematics, numeric mathematics, probability theory, and their chosen specialization. Additionally, students possess skills in the technical field they have chosen and thus an interdisciplinary understanding as well.

After your studies

Our bachelor's graduates may choose to pursue a master’s degree to further specialize or directly begin employment. Graduates typically find work in mechanical engineering (for example in strength theory and vibration problems), electrical engineering (for instance in regulation engineering, computation of fields, network planning, and communication technology), in the aeronautic and aerospace industry (e.g. in fluid calculations and orbit determinations), in civil engineering (e.g. in statics and material stability), and in biology and medicine (e.g. epidemic models and diagnostic evaluations).
