Career fields: Mathematicians are generally employed in many different fields of activity. Here, they benefit from the fact that they have repeatedly and independently familiarized themselves with new subject areas during their studies. Examples of occupational fields include, for example, the following:
  • Research and development in the technical and economic field
  • Banks and insurance companies
  • Administration and consulting
  • Software development
  • Medicine and pharmacy
In addition, there is of course the possibility of taking up a doctoral degree in mathematics.
Knowlegde/Experience Good to very good knowledge of the basic subjects of mathematics.

Course contents

Building on a relevant first professional qualification, the Master's degree programme imparts advanced knowledge in several areas of mathematics within the framework of a broad range of compulsory electives and introduces students to current research in a specialisation area.

In addition, the study should enable students to independently solve complex mathematical problems using scientific methods.

The mathematical education is supplemented by the study of an application subject.

By choosing one of the fields of study mathematics, computer mathematics, technomathematics or business mathematics, students have the opportunity to focus on specific subjects.
