Teaching

Optimization is a mathematical discipline with significant relevance in industry and economics. Thus, there exist numerous applications in practice, e.g. within the range of Operation Research, physics, logistics, energy networks or traffic systems. The chair of EDOM offers different lectures in this context, especially within the frame of the course of studies “Economics and Mathematics”.

The course of studies “Economics and Mathematics”

Within three years, the Bachelor course of studies “Economics and Mathematics” teaches fundamental knowledge and applications of mathematical techniques. In particular, basic knowledge and skills from three different areas (mathematics, economics and computer science) are taught within three years (6 semesters). The focus here is on the applications of mathematics to problems arising in economic applications. The detailed information about the Bachelor of Science in “Economics and Mathematics” can be found at the “Studienfachberatung” for Bachelor students.

For people with a Bachelor in “Economics and Mathematics” – or in mathematics with specialization in economics who want to gain further knowledge in economics – the Master course of studies “Economics and Mathematics” should be the most attractive variant. Within two years, additional knowledge necessary for independent and solely responsible scientific work is obtained. The detailed information about the Master of Science in “Economics and Mathematics” can be found at the “Studienfachberatung” for Master students. The compact information about the two studies with chances and contents can be found within our flyer.

Bachelor and Master Thesis

There are many interesting Bachelor and Master Theses in line with standard usage, often in co-operation with a company in the industry. The information pages Bachelor and Master theses provide the facts about requirements, possible topics, contact persons and previous works.

Range of lectures

Usually each term, the chair of EDOM offers lectures for Bachelor and Master students as well as a seminar, often in form of a project seminar. Furthermore, there is a regular seminar of our working group to which students and visitors are cordially invited. For current information about lectures and seminars, please look at univis.
