International Master and Ph.D. program

Advanced and Computational Mathematics

Nowadays the use of mathematics is indispensable for an efficient treatment of complex real-world problems coming from engineering, computer science, economics, finance etc. To list a few, but rather influential and striking examples, we refer to the household automatic control system, Google ranking, portfolio optimization, weather forecast or big data analysis. Here, the first step is to find out essential variables and model those links between them which crucially determine a real-world problem. This allows to further undertake the quantitative analysis of the resulting mathematical model. In particular, computation and optimization issues become important in order to obtain new cutting-edge knowledge about the problem and its solution. In the last step we arrive at a more thorough understanding of the real-world application or even to its more efficient treatment.

The aim of the four-semester master program is to train highly qualified graduates in mathematics who are capable of successfully dealing with challenges encountered in academic and practical working fields. Based on a Bachelor degree in mathematics, the program deepens knowledge and skills in pure and applied mathematics. Three main fields of specialization are offered, which are The program also covers basic education in a non-mathematical minor chosen by the student from subjects such as Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Computer Science, or Economics and Business Administration. Upon completion of the Master degree, particularly qualified students can enter directly into the Ph.D. program.
