The Applied Mathematics master’s degree programme is cooperatively offered by Nuremberg Tech and Würzburg-Schweinfurt University of Applied Sciences. It builds upon both the Applied Mathematics and Physics bachelor’s degree programme in Nuremberg and the Engineering Mathematics bachelor’s degree programme in Schweinfurt.

The degree programme imparts advanced scientific knowledge in the fields of applied mathematics and physics with the aim of mapping issues from the areas of physics, technology, and applied natural sciences by means of mathematical models and simulations. We place particular emphasis on the processes involved in constructing the models themselves, as well as on the analytical and numerical solutions to the resulting mathematical problems.
