Overview

Students at University of Zurich are capable of understanding, analysing and applying current research in the field. In addition they can communicate their results in writing and orally. 

Defining Mathematics is an art in itself because it is both concrete and abstract. We come up against mathematics in everything we do: when we make a phone call, drive a car, in the library, at the bank, in a doctor's practice. But we are not usually aware of this because the mathematical knowledge takes place "behind the scenes" as it were. It should not, however, be underestimated. Mathematics is a basic science that is playing an increasingly important role in our society. 

Mathematics is a fascinating network of theories, statements, propositions and methods that are logically combined with one another. The challenge lies in analysing this network and discovering new relationships that are significant for the advancement of mathematics itself or their application in science and technology. 

Career options:

An increasing number of fields (engineering sciences, economics, medicine, etc.) in our world are being "infiltrated" by mathematics and its applications. Which is why the career opportunities for mathematicians and very good and extremely varied. The skills trained and knowledge acquired during your studies lead to a broad spectrum of possibilities. 

Mathematicians are needed, for example, in: innovative high-tech companies companies with a natural sciences or engineering profile software firms or software departments of larger companies insurance companies and banks the teaching profession. Well-trained mathematicians are inestimably important, not least because they ensure the upcoming generation of scientists in information technology as well as engineering and natural sciences.
