Bachelor and Master Courses Renamed

In cooperation with Aachen University of Applied Sciences (FH Aachen), JSC offers a dual bachelor's course entitled "Scientific Programming" as well as a subsequent master's course on "Technomathematics". The bachelor's course also integrates vocational training as a "Mathematical Technical Software Developer" (MATSE) at Forschungszentrum Jülich.

The contract partners have agreed that both degree programmes will be renamed "Applied Mathematics and Computer Science" during the re-accreditation in winter semester 2018/19. In addition, the curricula have been extended to include elective lectures from data science. In particular, the master's course introduces a new specialization in data science with lectures on machine learning and tools for data analytics. The changes apply to all students starting their studies in winter semester 2018/19.
