In this article, we present the concept of mathematical application projects as a means to enhance the capabilities of engineering students to use mathematics for solving problems in larger projects as well as to communicate and present mathematical content. As opposed to many case studies, we concentrate on stating criteria and project classes from which instructors can build instances

As opposed to many case studies, we concentrate on stating criteria and project classes from which instructors can build instances (i.e. specific projects). The main goal of this paper is to facilitate the definition of new "good" projects in a certain curricular setting. 1. INTRODUCTION Learning and training mathematical concepts and algorithms in engineering departments of German Universities of Applied Sciences ("Fachhochschulen") usually consists of a sequence of "small steps" with "small-sized" assignments. This is necessary in order to gain familiarity without overloading students with too much complexity. But in the end, an engineer is required to use mathematics (models, software) for solving problems in larger projects as well as to communicate and present mathematical content. Without also learning this further step in mathematics education for engineers, mathematical knowledge
