Mathematics is the science of structures, including mathematics itself. Discovery of new patterns and relations, and the construction of models with predictive power are the core of mathematics.
Frequently, we see an interaction between fundamental and applied research. This versatility is reflected in the Master's programme Mathematical Sciences, which a broad range of courses is offered. Both students who want to specialise and students who aim for a wider background in mathematics. Areas of mathematics that are represented within Mathematical Sciences are: Applied Mathematics: Applied Analysis, Bifurcation Theory, Dynamical Systems, Econometrics, Financial Mathematics, Mathematical Biology and Numerical Analysis. Fundamental Mathematics: Algebra, Analysis, Geometry, Stochastics, Logic and Foundations of Mathematics, and History of Mathematics. This Master's programme offers a broad scope in a stimulating international environment which is renowned for its excellent research. Students who prefer to research subjects in depth will feel particularly at home at Mathematical Sciences.
