Mathematics Master's programme

Course outline, qualifications and competences

The English language master's programme in mathematics is provided in the framework of the NAWI Graz cooperation project between the University of Graz and Graz University of Technology. The range of courses is diverse, interdisciplinary and university-wide. The degree programme continues on from the practical and theoretical knowledge that students have acquired in a relevant bachelor's programme, enabling them to extend and deepen their knowledge as well as to develop a specialisation. They develop in-depth knowledge of analysis, algebra, stochastics, numerical mathematics and discrete mathematics. Furthermore, students have the opportunity to choose a focus area, thus individualising their education. Depending on the chosen focus area, students acquire comprehensive knowledge of the following areas: Theory and numerics of partial differential equations, financial and actuarial mathematics, algebra and discrete mathematics, continuous and discrete optimisation, statistics or the application of mathematics in engineering. This is a prevocational qualification for mathematicians in which they acquire central skills and competences in their area of expertise. Aspects include, for example, recognising structures and connections, abstraction and analysis skills as well as problem solving competences. In addition to subject-specific knowledge, students are taught soft skills such as oral and written communication skills, teamwork skills as well as social competences such as leadership skills.

Expected results

Graduates of the master's programme have a broad range of knowledge and skills in the field of mathematics as well as of mathematical methods and tools. In addition, they have specialised in particular areas. Graduates are able to make appropriate use of mathematical modelling of processes in technology, business and the natural sciences as well as to critically interpret results. Furthermore, they can explain complex matters to specialists and laypersons as well as adapt flexibly to new developments.
