Complex systems with a technological, biological or socio-economic background determine our everyday life. The challenge of modeling these complex systems mathematically demands the following prototypic profile of an "expert mastering a repertoire of modern mathematical and computer based methods for modeling, simulating and optimizing complex systems and knowing how to combine those methods for solving real-world problems". The term expert is understood in the sense of generalist and not a specialist, since this program aims at teaching a broad spectrum of modern methods.
The two-years English-taught master program "Mathematical Modeling of Complex Systems" focuses on advanced techniques of modeling, simulation and optimization. A substantial set of elective courses allows concentration on areas of individual interest. A mobility window enables the students to study abroad and gain scientific and cultural experience at international partner universities. This program uses English as medium of instruction since its graduates will enter a highly globalized work and research community. Besides that, the participation and enrollment of international candidates is explicitly welcomed.
Application oriented, interdisciplinary seminars link the theoretical basics and concepts of modeling and simulation. Students work in small teams to solve real world problems. This teamwork reflects typical work in applied sciences and corresponds to our paradigm of an "expert mastering a repertoire of methods to solve problems".
The Master degree in Mathematical Modeling of Complex Systems is to give those possessing extended skills in Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science in theory, experiment and practical application. These skills are complemented with further knowledge in additional topics, individually selected by each student. The degree entitles its holder to exercise professional work in the field of Applied Mathematics and/or Mathematical Modeling in science or industry or to pursue a PhD program in related fields.
The first three terms of the two-years master „Mathematical Modeling of Complex Systems“ consist of core courses in Applied Mathematics and Applied Physics. Elective courses in Applied Mathematics, Applied Physics and Computer Sciences allow each student to set its individual focus. Active use of the gained knowledge and its application to the solution of real-world problems is taught and practiced in a project seminar. This project seminar can be carried out in a three-month period at a research institution, enterprise or at university. The master thesis in the last term and dealing with modeling and simulating a real-world problem, shows the student’s ability to perform independent research work. The core and elective courses typically include a written or oral exam, the project seminar is graded based an oral presentation and written report of the project results.
