Description

Mathematics is the science which emerged from the study of figures and the calculation with numbers. It forms the basis of physics and sciences of technology. In addition, it already plays a prominent role in economics and finance and is becoming increasingly important in the life sciences.

The goal of the bachelor program Mathematics is to impart the students a very solid basic knowledge of mathematics as well as knowledge in mathematical modeling, computer science and a non-mathematical application subject. A good prerequisite for studying mathematics is to be interested in mathematics outside of normal school lessons. Also, school mathematics should, apart from occasional miscalculations, in principle cause no problems. It should be fun to discover mathematical laws and to prove them by logical conclusions. Is solving mathematical riddles perhaps a hobby?

In addition, with a suitable choice of the subject of application, master programs in computer science, an economic or technical subject are also available after the bachelor's degree.
