You receive a sound, basic education in mathematical areas that are particularly important for work in industry, commerce and science.
You learn the fundamentals of the following core areas of mathematics:
You choose one of the following specialisations:
Applied mathematics: Advanced mathematical modelling, advanced stochastics, advanced numerical mathematics, advanced differential equations, and their applications.
Discrete mathematics and algorithm theory: Advanced algebra, advanced discrete mathematics, advanced optimisation, advanced theoretical computer science, and their applications.
Financial and actuarial mathematics: Advanced stochastics, advanced differential equations, and their implementation in fundamental financial and actuarial mathematical models.
Mathematical engineering: Advanced differential equations, advanced numerical mathematics, basic knowledge of mechanics and electrical engineering.
For the individual courses, please see the semester plan.
Mathematics is a subject for conscientious, stubborn, ambitious, logical thinkers and philosophers… for inventors, enthusiasts and creative souls. I recommend my study area to students for whom superficial statements or vague assumptions are too little and who enjoy an intellectual challenge.
The most enjoyable are the numerous exercises in my study programme. Above all, I like the fact that it’s often not enough to simply apply a known solution scheme. I need my own ideas in order to find a solution. I recommend the Bachelor’s Programme in Mathematics to all students who enjoy solving logical problems and might like to know that – beyond the mathematics that we were taught in school –significantly is hidden than one would expect.
I was most often inspired in my studies by the realization that, while the goal was to find structures and regularities, I needed to use creativity and unconventional ideas along the way. I see the close relationship between the lectures and exercises to be an advantage, so that one learns the theory and, at the same time, reaches for the pen and paper. I recommend the programme to all those who have an abstract way of thinking and enjoy solving logical problem.
Graduates of the bachelor's programme Mathematics are highly qualified for master’s programmes. In Graz, you can study for example mathematics or computer science. The bachelor’s degree is internationally recognised and qualifies you to study outside of Austria as well as within.
After graduating from the master's programme, mathematicians work in industry, commerce and science.
