Are you a mathematician who enjoys putting algebra, number theory and logic into motion? You love working with computers and thinking outside of the box? Then the Master's degree program in Computer Mathematics is right for you!
How do mathematical software systems such as Geogebra, Maple, and Mathematica "think" when they evaluate integrals? How can a computer prove mathematical theorems or help find plausible and interesting mathematical conjectures? How can you calculate millions of decimal places of π, and why would you even want to?
As a student in the Master's degree program in Computer Mathematics, your work revolves at the interface between mathematics and computer science. You focus on modern mathematical content and explore new ways to implement mathematics using computers.
The Department of Mathematics at the JKU in Linz has been forging new paths and conducting cutting-edge research in this field for decades - be a part of it!

Computer mathematics generally focuses on how to use a computer to put mathematics into action. The Master's degree program explores this area from many different perspectives:
You not only learn how to use existing computer algebra systems or automatic evidence, you also become familiar with all of the developmental stages behind processing these kinds of systems.
Did you know ...?
JKU scientists use their own software to simplify mathematical expressions. These kinds of expressions occur, for example, in particle physics and our simplifications help find better approximations for certain fundamental constants in nature.
Graduates in Computer Mathematics are highly sought after in many areas of industry ranging from science to software development, statistics, data analysis, and insurance. Whether in the public or private sector, many career doors are open to you.
On average, graduates in this field find a job 2 months after completing the program. After 3 years on the job, their average monthly gross salary is € 3.471.
In order to be admitted to the Master's degree program, you must fulfill the following requirements.
Is this Master's degree program a mathematics program
or a computer science program?
Computer Mathematics is the study of mathematics but strongly incorporates topics in computer science.
