Applied Mathematics, Physics and Humanities

Who we are and what we do

The Faculty of Applied Mathematics, Physics and Humanities has three degree programs and provides elective and required elective courses in foreign languages, the humanities and the natural sciences.
The Faculty currently employs 29 professors who work with our students. Our comprehensive range of courses is supplemented by an adjunct staff of 50 instructors who provide quality instruction based on their experience in the working world.
Our campus offers numerous state-of-the-art facilities for research and lab work. In addition, we are involved in many interdisciplinary projects that students can actively participate in.

Nuremberg Tech's Faculty of Applied Mathematics, Physics and Humanities offers a bachelor's degree program in Journalism of Technology and a bachelor's degree program in Applied Mathematics and Physics. The bachelor's degree program (B. Eng.) in International Business and Technology is offered in cooperation with the Faculty of Business Administration.

What Journalists of Technology and Applied Mathematics and Physics graduates do

“Explain the world to me.” – Technical journalists combine technical expertise with media know-how and language skills. Their daily tasks include revising and evaluating complex issues and turning them into accessible journalistic texts. Technical journalists are intermediaries between experts and the lay public, presenting scientific results and practical applications as well as transferring specialized knowledge to users. They explain the (technical) world for everyone to understand. This type of communication requires both a sound understanding of scientific theories and an accurate overview of the media industry.

Recently, mathematical and physical questions have gained more and more importance in solving complex industrial issues. The answers to these questions often lay the essential foundation for technological progress. With growing computer power, the simulation of technical processes has established itself as the “third pillar” of methodology alongside experimentation and theory in  engineering and the natural sciences, playing an ever-increasing role in R&D. This evolution is also reflected in the labor market, where across-the-board skills in STEM disciplines are increasingly demanded. Thanks to the broad education in fundamental technical subjects provided in the Applied Mathematics and Physics degree program, you will be able to quickly come to grips with a wide spectrum of tasks.

Degrees we offer

 

Bachelor (B.A.) in Journalism of Technology

The degree program is usually completed in seven semesters during which we aim to provide you with practical journalistic, rhetorical and communicative skills. Students are also introduced to the basics of mathematics and physics and develop technical expertise in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, chemistry, architecture, process engineering and materials engineering.

Career outlook

Interconnection in our society increasingly affects our professional lives and in our free time. Our world is becoming more and more complex. At the same time, our media world is also experiencing continuous growth.
Trained technical journalists may be self-employed or work for editorial departments in all types of media, such as print media, broadcasting, or the Internet. Their work involves various kinds of text types, ranging from popular science to expert or trade publications. As a public relations and media expert, graduates may find employment at manufacturing companies, businesses and government agencies, as part of their internal and external communication teams. As a technical editor tasked with technical documentation, they may be required to prepare operating instructions, product documentation, catalogs or online help for software. They may work closely with designers, graphic designers and publishers. They may create and produce teaching material for the education industry and write tutorials. With their background, they may expect a diverse field that will ensure exciting job opportunities in the long term.
