Financial Engineering – A new Course in Financial Engineering (Master of Science) at DISC TU Kaiserslautern

In-depth knowledge of methodology, modern financial mathematics and actuarial theory and their statistical and numerical use in practice are increasingly important in the finance and insurance industry. Regulators now also set strict risk assessment requirements for business portfolios, and these require an understanding of the latest statistical methods and actuarial models. A combination of methods is key in practice and opens up career opportunities in the financial industry and many adjoining Areas.

The programme is tailored to the demands of everyday working practice: interdisciplinary, and designed to teach the advanced financial mathematics and financial economics theory and skills required for an in-depth understanding of the increasingly complex financial market. It also explores links to actuarial science and teaches relevant statistical and numerical methods.
