Study Mathematics at LIT.

Because you love the language of numbers and its vastness magically attracts you, you begin a journey of discovery. You begin to study mathematics at LIT to become a Newniverse Pioneer - to infinity and beyond!

Just take a look. Our undergraduate student Corinna gives you insight into her everyday life, talks about the Mathematics program, and introduces you to the JKU campus:

Your New Professor?

Professor Ramlau explains just how things at LIT are, what you need to bring to the table to study mathematics, what research and teaching mean to him, and just what opportunties you have here. Just watch.

Become a Newniverse Pioneer

New planets, universes and maybe even extraterrestrial life - you need gigantic telescope and someone like you to explore all of that. Because algorithms run in your blood and let you create razor-sharp images by applying complex arithmetic operations. Because, as a Newniverse Pioneer, you grasp the whole picture.

And studying mathematics means the sky's the limit. Math is everywhere: in our MP3 players, our debit cards, and in navigation systems. Math is the basis for all kinds of technological and innovative developments, giving you a variety of career options. When you study mathematics at the LIT, you solve problems, research new things, and work closely with industrial companies. You just have to start.
