Mathematics, M.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 24 months
University rank #311 (QS) ,
Techniques from a wide range of mathematical fields are necessary to cope with the challenges arising in numerous applications: Mathematical imaging improves diagnostic accuracy in life sciences and engineering and has become an indispensable tool for complex surgeries.


Telecommunication and modern payment methods propose challenging problems for data encryption. The recent changes in economy require novel approaches to risc management in finance and insurance industry. Analytical and computer aided techniques allow to analyse and simulate mathematical models of steadily increasing complexity in natural sciences, life science, economical sciences and engineering.

The master's programme Mathematics offers the opportunity to specialise in one of the following focus areas:• Applied Mathematics• Discrete Mathematics• Financial and Actuarial Mathematics• Statistics and Operations Research• Technomathematics

Due to their training in joined-up thinking and abstraction and their deepened knowledge of mathematical techniques graduates can be employed for a wide range of tasks in industry, economy and science. Possible working areas include:

  • Modeling and simulation in industry and economy,
  • Development, analysis and implementation of simulation tools,
  • Optimisation of processes in industy and economy,
  • Collection and analysis of statistical data,
  • Data technology data security and cryptography,
