After building up a broad foundation of knowledge in the bachelor's degree programme, the prospect of delving deeper into my personal areas of interest in mathematics motivated me to learn even more in the master's degree programme. For all those who also want to practically apply their theoretical knowledge, it’s usually possible to do an internship in a company or work as a student assistant at the university.
My Erasmus+ stay abroad was the ideal complement to my studies. This enabled me not only to make contacts and learn a new language, but also to get to know other teaching and learning concepts as well as exciting research areas at the partner university.
Many modern technologies are no longer possible without sophisticated mathematical methods. In the master's programme you reach a mathematical level needed for these applications.
The TU Graz degree programme provided me with several core competencies, such as how to take a fearless approach to my subject and persevere when dealing with complex challenges, as well as a good combination of solid theoretical training and skills for practically applying what I had learned. Plus, it was simply fun.
I was already fascinated by mathematics as a kid and was fortunate enough to turn my passion into a career. I still fondly remember my time as a student and stay closely connected to TU Graz. I work together with colleagues from all over the world, and many of my contacts date back to my time in Graz.
The master's degree in mathematics offers many different options for specialisation and the opportunity to take your studies in an individual direction. I chose the specialisation in financial and actuarial mathematics, and I am now working as a university assistant at the Institute of Statistics at TU Graz.
The thing that made me decide to begin a doctoral programme was my master’s thesis – in the discussions with my supervisor, I caught his enthusiasm for his research field.
