Mathematics has been one of the great scientific disciplines for thousands of years. The knowledge that it has gained and the structures that it investigates are of an abstract intellectual nature, but nevertheless represent an essential aid for describing and understanding the real world. Its importance for the natural and engineering sciences is fundamental and growing constantly. In recent times it has also become a key science for computer science, economics and finance, and medicine. Accordingly, the career prospects of mathematics graduates are excellent and the areas of application are diverse.
The Mathematical Institute is part of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences and thus has direct links to all natural science subjects. There are also connections to the Faculties of Medicine and Economics. You can choose to focus on a field of mathematics or an application subject, such as computer science, physics or economics. You can start your studies in full in the summer and winter semesters.
Objectives of the mathematics courses (Bachelor and Master)
Today, mathematics has become a key science in the fields of computer science, economics, finance and medicine. That is why we have set up a bachelor's degree in "Mathematics and Application Areas" and a master's degree in "Mathematics" in Düsseldorf, where you can choose between a field of mathematics or an application area. Mathematic courses can be selected to match. When choosing a focus in the field of application, the students also achieve a bachelor's or master's level in a sub-area of ??this subject.

It is a modularized course of study in which each module is examined closely related to the selected courses. In this way, rapid study in the standard period of 4 semesters is encouraged.
The modules of the master’s course are (modules and credit points / LP)
Elective area (at least 54 CP - consisting of):
* Focus modules (at least 18 CP), * modules in pure mathematics (at least 18 CP), * modules in applied mathematics (at least 18 credit points)
Supplementary area (at least 9 CP)
* Supplementary modules (at least 9 CP)
Key qualifications area (at least 18-20 CP)
* Seminars (10 CP), * Techniques of scientific work (5 CP), * Other key qualifications (3-5 credit points)
The conclusion is the master's thesis (30 CP), which is written on a topic of a focus module. The flexible structure of the course enables specializations in various areas such as business mathematics, which include interdisciplinary training.
The admission requirement for the master’s degree is a bachelor’s degree in a mathematics course with a grade of 3.0 or better or proof of knowledge that corresponds to that in our bachelor’s course.
All degrees in mathematics allow you a successful start in various professional fields in areas such as: financial services, telecommunications, life sciences, mechanical engineering, logistics, management consulting, training and many others.
Due to the wide range of fields of activity of mathematicians, the career prospects have always been very good. The master’s degree also gives you access to doctoral studies and thus to an academic career
