The transformation of energy systems poses major challenges for society, and mathematics is playing a key role in solving them. A teacher's guide developed at the Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences for the new subject area of Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics (IMP) now makes these challenges tangible for school lessons, against the background of a highly topical social context.
Wind power plays a major role in today's energy turnaround. For efficiency reasons, most approaches envisage large wind farms, from which electricity must be distributed over long distances. But what if we could use wind energy directly on site? So what if instead of large wind farms with long power lines, small, distributed wind turbine systems in the cities themselves would cover part of the energy supply? This is the idea behind "Windy Cities", a state-funded research project of the Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences (HFT) in cooperation with the University of Stuttgart and the Esslingen University of Applied Sciences.
"High-Tech = Math-Tech" - this concise formula makes it clear: Well-trained mathematicians are indispensable for modern, innovative (industrial) companies. The HFT Stuttgart is the only university of applied sciences in Baden-Württemberg to offer an application-oriented Bachelor's and Master's programme in mathematics. Students learn far more than just mathematical basics at our university. We train problem solvers, creative thinkers and solution-oriented users - and this in the two specialisations of financial and actuarial mathematics (business mathematics focus) or algorithm engineering (information technology focus).
Get your students excited about mathematics and take advantage of our versatile offer, which ranges from brochures and teaching units to lectures and workshops at your school. We would be happy to send you further information material on our range of courses. We look forward to receiving your request.
