What will I learn?

The predominant aim of the MSc course in Mathematics is for students to acquire the ability to selectively gather information about a given problem, to discuss it critically and analytically, to acquire the required knowledge autonomously, and to use this knowledge constructively to solve the problem. The MSc course in Mathematics promotes students' understanding of scientific questions and problems as well as skills and techniques used in Mathematics, logical consistency of thinking, and precise linguistic expression. Graduates will be able to apply and adapt mathematical methods independently, to recognize and examine mathematical structures autonomously, and to open up new fields of knowledge (also beyond Mathematics) independently. 

Which career opportunities do I have?

Rapid technological progress and the demands of an increasingly complex and networked world open up new and very attractive career opportunities for graduates in Mathematics. Job prospects can be found in economy and industry, the civil service, and in education and research. Further career prospects for graduates in Mathematics include research and development departments of larger companies, research departments in the industry, engineering offices, companies in the fields of biotechnology, pharmacy and medical engineering, Contract Research Organizations (CRO), banks and insurances, consulting and controlling, software development, IT and statistics industry, teaching, publishing companies, as well as federal and state authorities.

Why Salzburg?

The MSc course in Mathematics at the University of Salzburg is distinguished by its strong orientation towards the research activities at the Department of Mathematics. In accordance to students' individual research interests, a specialization in the field of algebra and numeric theory, differential equations, numerics and optimisation as well as statistics and stochastics is possible. Moreover, the curriculum offers a wide range of options to pursue further interests within the optional subjects. By completing additional qualifications, graduates can enhance their profile. A high student-to-staff ratio is a decisive component thereof. Last but not least, Salzburg as a university city offers a high standard of living in an exceptional environment.
