Duration 7 Semesters Enrollment Wintersemester Admission restriction No restricted admission Entry requirements University entrance qualification (e.g. Abitur) or relevant subject-related matriculation standard Application deadline     Applicants with German university entrance certificate (Abitur)   an der OVGU 15 September     Applicants with international secondary school leaving certificate   über uni-assist 15 July Language German


  • Electrical Engineering and Information Technology
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Process Engineering

The specialisations are undertaken in cooperation with the Faculties of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Mechanical Engineering and Process & Systems Engineering.

Students choose one of the specialisations at the start of their second year of study, but may, due to the high proportion of general engineering subjects, still change direction up until the start of the third year of study without a great deal of additional effort.


The Bachelor’s programme in Mathematical Engineering is interdisciplinary and research oriented. Students acquire equally in-depth knowledge in an engineering subject and mathematics. A special feature of the new course are the two modelling modules which focus to a high degree on providing the skills needed for interdisciplinary work. Programming skills and the ability to work with mathematical and technical software are also conveyed, but are not a major focus of the study programme.

Career Perspectives

Graduates are both engineers and mathematicians. Thanks to their qualifications they are bridge builders between the specialist disciplines and as a result have, to a very particular degree, the skills for interdisciplinary work in the fields of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Mechanical Engineering or Process Engineering. As highly qualified specialists they are able to shape processes in traffic planning or the logistics industry, or develop navigation systems or optimisation processes in industry. They may also have successful careers in the development departments of the electronics industry, the automobile industry, communications and safety engineering, in plant and equipment engineering, or in the food industry. Over and above this, the degree entitles students to study for a Master’s degree in mathematics or - depending on their field of study - an engineering subject.

Competencies and Interests Required

Prospective students should have in-depth technical and scientific knowledge and be enthused by mathematics and technology.
