A detailed description of the process can be found here

- For BSc in Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Engineering,...
- Lectures in Numerical Mathematics, Probability Theory, Optimization.
- Optional courses in biology, computer science, economics.
- Opportunity to take an industrial internship.
- Advanced modules in Machine Learning, Optimization, Statistics, etc.
- Language: english
- Start: only winter term (October 1st)

You need a Bachelor's degree with a minimum of 30 credits in Mathematics, including 12 credits in foundations of calculus and linear algebra. In english, B2 is expected. You can only start this program in the winter term (October 1st).

You will obtain solid foundation in mathematics in a basic course, and an additional advanced course in applied mathematics. In the electives, you can choose from modules such as numerical optimization, numerics for partial differential equations, neural nets, financial mathematics, dynamical systems in biology, econometrics, computer vision, automated machine learning, etc. More information can be found here

We believe that mathemtics is the foundation of data science and technology, and this program provides the mathematical foundations of artificial intelligence and machine learning. All necessary skills such as numerical mathematics, optimization, and probability theory are covered in various courses which are based on basic skills in calculus and linear algebra.

Applications of mathematics often require the knowledge to convert project results into applicable software. We expect basic programming skills, since coding will be an important part of the basic module, and will be strengthened in a specific coding module.

The programming project can be exchanged by an industrial placement (interneship) of at least six weeks. As examples, we have connections to various local companies, including Sick, Baloise, LBBW, Allianz, Fraunhofer, Bosch.

Freiburg is a green city close to the Black Forest with many opportunities for outdoor activities. The University of Freiburg has not only has a long tradition in all areas of the natural sciences and humanities, but is also very active in research, as its rankings show. The mathematical institute, which hosts the largest part of this program, covers a broad spectrum of topics, from mathematical logic to machine learning.
