The demand for well-trained mathematicians in industry is increasing. Therefore, the Department of Mathematics is continually improving and modernising its facilities in order to offer its students the best prospects for the future. Engineering and science students, who also need a good foundation in mathematics, can also profit from the excellent conditions.
This interdisciplinary co-operation continues in the area of research. The Department of Mathematics is home to several German Research Foundation (DFG) projects, many of which also involve the Department of Natural Sciences. Students can thus choose programmes which combine their mathematical skills with engineering or business subjects. The Department of Mathematics is equipped with an extensive and modern computer network and provides students with excellent access to technological resources. These superior study conditions are complemented by close contact with professors and tutors.
The International Combined Master s and PhD Programme in Mathematics leads to a recognized Master of Science (MSc) degree after four semesters and to a doctorate (PhD) after six additional semesters, and allows participants to specialize in various mathematical fields. The international nature of this study path is further demonstrated by the fact that a number of lectures are delivered in the English language.
