In five study programs, prospective mathematicians find exciting and sometimes perplexing answers to mathematical questions. Here, students learn how to analyze problems according to the rules of mathematics, how to question them and how to find solutions that can be proven with sound arguments. A mathematics degree quenches the thirst for knowledge of all curious people who are not satisfied with merely accepting statements and always ask "How?" and "Why?".

Students are prepared here for careers in industry, science, or education. Graduates in mathematics are highly sought after in the job market and in all industries.

Through modern and lively teaching, dedicated professors impart solid basic mathematical knowledge, creative problem-solving skills and the use of the mathematical toolbox in current fields of application.

In addition, we offer comprehensive service teaching for other faculties and disciplines at RUB. You can find out more on the page of the Service Center Mathematics and Applications.
