Dienstags von 09:00 bis 11:00 im Raum S07.110 (Labor Mathematik) und nach Verainbarung.

Equipment

The laboratory is equipped with 16 modern computer workstations. The tables are arranged as a chevron to make it easier to work in groups. Projection screens are available at both ends of the room. And complex relationships can be illustrated clearly on two large whiteboards.

Projects and Classes

Students work on projects which involve the modelling and simulation of applications from automotive engineering, mechanical engineering and biotechnology, for example. The implementation of mathematical methods in practice plays a key role here. Students learn how mathematics can provide an elegant solution to difficult problems which are encountered in these applications.

Project Autonomous Driving

The autonomous driving project is a cooperation between the Faculty of Basic Sciences and the Faculty of Information Technology ably supported by the Faculty of Automotive Engineering. Model vehicles on a scale of 1:10 are constructed by students and equipped with control units, sensors and actuators. The objective is to replicate modern driver assistance systems and develop them further. These systems use a vast amount of mathematics.

Exhibits

A variety of mathematical objects are exhibited in showcases. Three-dimensional polyhedrons impressively illustrate the relationship between corners, edges and surfaces. Cutaways of various sensors for driver assistant systems are exhibited especially for the automotive engineering students. A huge amount of mathematics plays out inside these sensors. This is where the material taught in the mathematics lectures is put into practice.

Apply for summer semester 2021!

Applications open October 15th 2020
