Streaming music, withdrawing money, forecasting the weather or looking into space - mathematics makes all of this possible. Learn how to apply mathematical theories to real-world practices.
The JKU Young Scientists program in Mathematics gives you an opportunity to meet internationally renowned researchers and experts. You not only learn from them during workshop sessions, you will also learn more about prospective careers and degree programs.
As a JKU Young Scientist, you have a unique opportunity to complete a summer internship at the JKU or at a well-known company in Upper Austria.
Registration for the 2023/24 academic year will be opened beginning October 2, 2023.
The JKU Young Scientists in Mathematics program is offered twice a year. This means you can decide for yourself if you want to take part in the program during the Winter Semester and/or during the Summer Semester. The workshops have been designed to provide insight into the many facets of mathematics.
