Course description

Mathematics is not just a science on its own; it’s a cornerstone for the quantitative aspects of nearly all academic fields. This is especially true in natural sciences, engineering, business administration, economics, medicine, and psychology. Mathematical principles are embedded in almost every part of life and are essential for most modern technologies. As IT systems grow more powerful, we can use mathematics to manage vast amounts of data and solve increasingly complex problems. The focus is on teaching students to formalize problems for algorithmic processing and to select or create suitable algorithms to solve these problems effectively. The degree program is theoretical but includes practical applications. You will gain advanced knowledge in areas like Cryptography, Computer Algebra, Algorithmic Algebra and Geometry, Image and Signals Processing, Statistics and Stochastic Simulation, and Dynamical Systems and Control Theory. Additionally, you will delve into Computer Science fields such as Data Management, Machine Learning, and Data Mining. This program also teaches you to apply your knowledge to diverse fields like Marketing, Predictive Analytics, Computational Finance, Digital Humanities, IT Security, and Robotics.

Qualification Requirements

To apply successfully, you need to have an undergraduate university degree in mathematics or a related discipline with a mathematics component of at least 110 ECTS credits. You were ranked among the best 70% of graduates within your cohort or the final gradefor your first degree should be (equivalent to) 2.7 or better under the German grading scale. Your degree must have been earned over a course of study of a standard length of three years or more. If you completed a four-year non-ECTS degree, the 110 ECTS credit requirement is deemed to be met if approximately two-thirds of your credit points were earned in mathematics-related modules/courses. If you have not yet received your final results and certificates at the time of application, you may apply using your Transcript of Records or other preliminary transcript. If you are successful in your application, you must then submit your final transcript and degree certificate no later than the 10th week of lectures. As part of the application you must submit an English or German-language abstract/summary of your undergraduate dissertation/bachelor's thesis/final year project. If you did not write a dissertation/thesis as a formal part of your prior degree programme, you may instead submit an academic research paper or publication that demonstrates your ability to solve a scientific research problem independently.
