About

Computational Mathematics plays a fundamental role in the quantitative areas of practically all other academic disciplines, particularly in the natural sciences, engineering, business administration, economics, medicine and psychology. 

Overview

 Mathematical results permeate nearly all facets of life and are a necessary prerequisite for the vast majority of modern technologies – and as our IT systems become increasingly powerful, we are able to mathematically handle enormous amounts of data and solve ever more complex problems.

Special emphasis is placed on developing students' ability to formalise given problems in a way that facilitates algorithmic processing as well as enabling them to choose or develop, and subsequently apply, suitable algorithms to solve problems in an appropriate manner. 

The Computational Mathematics degree programme at University of Passau is theoretical in its orientation, with strongly application-oriented components. Studying this programme, you can gain advanced knowledge in the mathematical areas of Cryptography, Computer Algebra, Algorithmic Algebra and Geometry, Image and Signals Processing, Statistics and Stochastic Simulation, Dynamical Systems and Control Theory as well as expert knowledge in Computer Science fields such as Data Management, Machine Learning and Data Mining.

Career

Mathematicians continue to have outstanding career prospects, as they are highly sought after wherever high-level analytical thinking skills are a requirement. Their potential occupational fields are therefore less limited than is the case with medical doctors or engineers, who specialise in a specific sub-field of their discipline.

Outside of academic and research organisations, mathematicians find employment in nearly all private- and public-sector organisations. Nowadays, mathematicians' work typically makes heavy use of computing technology.

Traditionally, mathematicians are employed in the pharmaceutical industry, in the financial industry, insurance companies, consulting and business intelligence, market research, logistics, information technology and in the research and development departments of high-tech companies.
