Bachelor Applied Mathematics and AI
Studium Angewandte Mathematik und Künstliche Intelligenz: Blick in die Vorlesung an der HFT Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, Deutschland

Field of specialization: You decide - Algorithms or Finance?

Regardless of whether you choose the classic or cooperative study option: We train you as a structured problem solver, mathematical creative thinker and communicative team player. You can choose between two majors:

  • Algorithm Engineering: information technology focus
  • Financial and actuarial mathematics: focus on business mathematics

The specializations make you fit for a wide range of applications, for example in the areas of autonomous driving, digital planning and optimization or development and management of financial and insurance products.

Maximum practical relevance with Maths² - Work & Study

The study variant Maths² is a bachelor's programme in mathematics with maximum practical relevance. From the first semester onwards, you will work in this study variant in one of our cooperating companies and can deepen your knowledge directly in practice. The study variant differs from the classical variant only in terms of time. In terms of content, you will receive the same sound education as in the classic variant.

Please note that an application for the bachelor's degree in Math² has some special features. You must first apply for the Bachelor's programme in Mathematics at the HFT Stuttgart via our online portal. At the same time, the application is made to one of our cooperating companies. All information is available on our Maths² - Work & Study page.

Interested companies from the Stuttgart region can contact us at any time by phone (+49 711 8926 2526) or email .
