Mathematics is one of the oldest sciences and at the same time very modern. She teaches structured, logical thinking. With the help of mathematical models and theories, both abstract and applied problems can be formulated, simplified and solved. Their importance grows with the increasing mechanization of our society - all modern technologies are also based on mathematical achievements.

Building on the bachelor’s degree, the master’s degree provides the ability to work scientifically and provides an insight into current research. The course is flexible - students can choose courses from the areas of algebra, analysis, geometry, numerics and stochastics.



  • Degree in a bachelor's degree program lasting at least six semesters (or an equivalent degree)
  • Degree in the respective course or a course with very similar content
  • Depending on the course, there may be additional requirements. The exact admission criteria can be found in the admission regulations

Admission with conditions

In the case of admission with conditions, you will be admitted, but you must catch up on certain examinations from the bachelor's degree before you register for the master's thesis. This can be the case, for example, if you completed your bachelor's degree at another university or a university of applied sciences and did not take seminars or modules there that you need for the master’s degree at the University of Stuttgart. The final decision as to whether your professional aptitude is recognized as sufficient is made by the admissions committee .

Graduated from a university of applied sciences

A degree from a university of applied sciences (formerly a university of applied sciences) or the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University basically entitles you to study for a master’s degree at a university, according to the State University Act.

Admission restriction (NC)

In master’s courses in which the number of study places is limited (Numerus Clausus (NC)), ranking lists are created for the allocation of study places based on the criteria that are a prerequisite for admission to the master’s course. The admission regulations for the relevant master’s degree program regulate further details.

Course-specific features

Apart from the admission with conditions, there are other variants of admission depending on the subject:



Mathematicians are generalists in problem solving and can be used wherever logical thinking is required. You can efficiently familiarize yourself with complex issues and therefore also apply for positions that are not limited to mathematics. Mathematical expertise is required as well as superordinate skills such as logical thinking, creativity, flexibility, accuracy and receptivity.

Professional fields are the financial sector (insurance and banking), management consulting, software development, telecommunications, pharmaceutical industry, biotechnology, medicine, research and development in industry, logistics, the automotive industry and much more.

A completed master’s degree in mathematics also opens the door to a doctorate in mathematics or another mathematics-related science area.
