Evaluation of grades

The module is not graded (only study achievements)..


A selected topic will be used as an example to deal with an issue from mathematics aiming at a practical implementation in the form of a programme / programme package. The participating students should first work out largely indepently the issue, plan the realisation of the project, carry it out and finally present their results.

The topic should take into account the different preknowledge of the students, which is based on the fact that individually different choices were made for the compulsory electives of the second year of study.

As a rule, two to three students should work together on a single project.

The implementation of the project is accompanied by the teaching and elaboration of the required soft skills (such as project planning and team management).

Competencies / intended learning achievements

Upon successful completion of this module, the students have learnt to get through a mathematical issue, including setting a timetable and milestones.

They are able to complete a self-contained programming project, including full documentation and final validation, project planning, team management and presentation of the final product.


Towards the end of each semester's lecture period, the practical training projects (Fachpraktika) offered in the following semester will be presented at the "Praktikumsbörse" and the modalities for participation and registration will be announced.

Further information can be found on the website of the bachelor's programme [MAT-82.105-SG] "Mathematics" and asked for at the persons in charge for the practical training projects of the respective specialisations (Fachpraktikumsbeauftragte):

  • Algebra, Geometry, and Computer Algebra: Dr. J. Böhm,
  • Analysis and Stochastics: Dr. T. Fattler,
  • Modelling and Scientific Computing: Dr. M. Bracke,
  • Optimisation and Stochastics: Dr. F. Kämmerer (Optimisation), Dr. J.-P. Stockis (Stochastics).

Requirements for attendance of the module (informal)

Knowledge from courses of Practical Mathematics (Optimisation, Numerical Methods, Stochastics, Symbolic Computing, see [MAT-14-KPOOL-3]); depending on the project, further prerequisites may be necessary.



Requirements for attendance of the module (formal)

Registration at the person in charge for the practical training projects of the respective specialisation (Fachpraktikumsbeauftragte) is required; in the case of projects/internships outside the department of mathematics, the registration has to be done at least one month before the start of the projects/internship.

As formal admission requirement for a specific project, the proof of successful participation (Praktikumsschein) for one of the programming labs from the module [MAT-14-02-M-3] may be required.
