  • MSc in Mathematics

  • MP3 players, train schedules, process optimization, MRI scanners, election analyses, online banking—mathematics is ubiquitous. This master's program in mathematics offers a comprehensive range of courses in pure and applied mathematics. The program's objective is to deepen and expand upon students' mathematical understanding and to teach them how to conduct independent research. Students may also take part in a research team. This program is taught in English.
  • Program structure

    This is a two-year master's program.

  • The first year consists of lectures and seminars of increasing difficulty. Students may choose courses based on their own abilities and interests.
  • In the second year, students can choose from a large spectrum of electives, particularly in the Department’s three key research areas: algebraic, geometrical and discrete structures; optimization and partial differential equation; and probability and mathematical statistics.
  • Students also complete their master's thesis in the second year. An individually tailored introductory project imparts the skills and knowledge required for a student's chosen area of research. In a subsequent preparatory project, students are made familiar with the special mathematical methods required for their master's thesis. In their second year, students are supervised by a professor and also take active part in a research team.
  • Career prospects

    Graduates who successfully complete the master's program have sound knowledge of their research area as well as the ability to analyze connections and develop solutions using mathematical methods. There are excellent job prospects in all fields which require complex problem-solving. In addition to research at university level, graduates have opportunities in finance, IT, the specialist and service departments of various corporations and institutions, and in industrial research and development (e.g., in the fields of mechanical engineering, biotechnology, automobile manufacturing, corporate consulting, insurance, banking, and market research and opinion polling).
