Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science (Faculty 1)
Applied Sciences: Mathematics and Computer Science
Our faculty is engaged in the foundations of a university of technology: together with domain experts we design models of scientific and technical processes, develop computational tools for fast and precise simulations and provide multi-media visualizations, for example in our state-of-the-art CAVE. We further research robots that support humans in challenging environments.
Our Applied Mathematics, Applied Computer Science and Mathematical Economics study programs provide you with sustainable knowledge and competences to last throughout your professional career. In addition, our study concept equips you with skills trending in the industry to ensure your successful career start.
In Freiberg, you can find a path of study tailored to your individual interests:
- one-on-one support from professors and teaching assistants,
- flexible course of study,
- small groups and project teams,
- relevant preparatory courses,
- regular top ranking among german universities,
- campus university in an easy-going city,
- take advantage of dorms on campus or live in the heart of medieval Freiberg.
Our scientists conduct their research in an interdisciplinary environment together with colleagues from other faculties in the wider fields of resource technology, i.e. exploring, using, conserving, managing and recycling our planet's resources. Our mathematicians and computer scientists cooperate with engineers, chemists, and physicists as well as geo- and material scientists. Hot topics currently under investigation include:
- robotics and the internet of things,
- numerical simulation,
- algorithms for high performance computing,
- multimedia and virtual reality,
- partial and stochastic differential equations,
- optimal control,
- virtual reality.
Our research is supported by DFG grants (German Research Foundation) for individual projects, collaborative research centers and priority programs. Close cooperations with the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) and the Helmholtz-Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology (HIF) constantly challenge our creativity.
