Welcome to the Department of Mathematics!

ATM cards, MP3 players, computer tomography, navigation systems, steel sheets - we wouldn't have any of these things if it weren't for mathematics.

Mathematicians think analytically and try to solve problems: Their thirst for knowledge leads them to pursue a deeper understanding. Mathematics is also one of the world's oldest sciences but yet one of the most contemporary of sciences.

Mathematics today means: translating questions in fields of engineering and business, for example, to create mathematical models, developing mathematical foundations and methods, solving the problems within a model, and interpreting the findings for real-world applications. Theory and application go hand in hand.
