|Mittweida University of Applied Sciences||6 Semesters|
The enormous technical progress during the last two decades has resulted in highly innovative products and services that are based on mathematical achievements more than ever before. Modern mathematics is at the heart of an increasing number of innovations in the field of digital communication, satellite navigation, e-commerce, medical technology, and consumer electronics. Without modern mathematics, there would be no navigation system, no mobile phone, no secure payment on the Internet, no digital TV, and no MP3 players.
Additionally, there would be no efficient web search, no Blu-ray discs, and no digital rights management (DRM). Modeling and simulation of computer and communication networks as well as social network analysis are also based on profound mathematical knowledge and methods. Current and previous developments in these highly innovative fields have led to a new understanding of mathematics. Modern mathematics is not only an auxiliary science for other sciences to solve technical and economic problems; it is considered as an independent, genuine technology nowadays.
Its main characteristics are its algorithmic and technology-driven approach, combined with industrial relevance and innovation. The goal of this Bachelor’s degree program in Applied Mathematics is to persuade young people to participate in these ongoing developments in a most competent and comprehensive way and to give them a promising perspective for a professional career in the field of mathematics and its applications.
