Applied Mathematics: Whether it’s the automotive industry, aerospace engineering, or the energy sector – the development of complex products or production methods would hardly be conceivable without computations and computer simulations. The financial, material, and personnel effort would be too high – and that’s without a guarantee of success. After completing the program in Applied Mathematics young engineers can work in all fields, in which technical questions in mechanical engineering are solved with modern IT.

Computer Science: Computer science is one of the key disciplines of the 21st century, which affects almost all modern industries. Consequently, the possible career paths are very broad for graduates with a computer science degree and the job market is highly favorable. The job market includes jobs such as software engineer, system integrator, information systems manager, data analyst, database administrator, application developer, cyber security analyst, and system analyst.

Data Science: Demand for professionals skilled in data, analytics, and machine learning is exploding. Data scientists bring value to organizations across industries because they are able to solve complex challenges with data and drive important decision-making processes. Not only is there a huge demand, but there is a significant shortage of qualified data scientists with 39% of the most rigorous data science positions requiring a degree higher than a bachelor’s.

Electrical & Electronics Engineering: The career opportunities for EEE graduates cover a wide range and continue to grow. Electrical & Electronics Engineers are everywhere – in industry and research areas as diverse as computer and communication networks, electronic circuits and systems, semiconductor biomedical engineering, computational biology, artificial intelligence, robotics, design and manufacturing, and many more. The key point of the program is a deep education in engineering principles, built on mathematical, computational, physical, and life sciences, and exercised with practical applications and project experiences in a wide range of areas.
