Mathematics - a core skill

Mathematics is a core skill which is required for all degree programmes involving engineering and economics. Nowadays, hardly any product or service can manage without applied mathematics. Numerical methods, statistics and optimisation play an important role. During their undergraduate studies, students fill their mathematical toolbox with useful instruments.

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 Central Academic Institution of Orientation and Undergraduate Studies and the Faculty of Computer Science and Engineering ably supported by the Faculty of Mobility and Technology. 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.


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.
