Master phase of the international Master and Ph.D. programBased on a Bachelor degree in mathematics, the knowledge and skills are deepened in lectures in pure mathematics and applied mathematics in the Master phase. In the third semester one specializes in one of the fields of study of algebra, analysis, geometry, numerics, optimization or stochastics.
Furthermore the Master study program covers a basis education in a non-mathematical minor from the faculties of Natural Sciences, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Computer Science and Economics and Business Administration
The study program is completed with the Master examination. This exam consists of the Master thesis, which is normally written in the 4th semester of the Master phase, and the subject examination in the subjects pure mathematics, applied mathematics, in the immersion and minor.
Ph.D. phase of the international Master and Ph.D. programThe Ph.D. study program deepens the knowledge and skills, especially for the self-reliant scientific work. Next to the immersion in the field of specialization, there is the option to attend respective lectures and seminars on latest research and discuss open problems in research. The demonstration of the knowledge obtained in these lectures are part of the doctoral viva. Further details can be found in the Ph.D. regulations.
During the Ph.D. study program, the dissertation is normally written during the 3rd to 6th semester. Thereby the students demonstrate by self-reliant scientific work that they can achieve results which are an advance of the scientific field, its theories and methods.
