The Master in Mathematics is an extension of the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics or in Mathematics and Computer Science, which gives students the opportunity to specialise in one of the research areas of the Mathematics section (algebra, analysis, geometry, topology, mathematical physics, probability and statistics, numerical analysis).

Description

The programme offers two streams: the “research” stream includes advanced courses for specialisation in a chosen field; the “general” stream allows students to broaden the scope of their degree by choosing electives offered by other university sections or departments. Through this programme, students will learn to use the mathematical tools that are now essential in research, industry, economics and finance.

Available Concentrations:
  • Research
  • General
Students may earn up to 30 credits while on exchange. They may also conduct research outside the university, under the supervision of a faculty member, or do a work placement at a leading external laboratory in order to complete their Master’s degree.The Master in Mathematics opens up a number of opportunities both in Switzerland and abroad, including:
  • Applied research in the private sector
  • Telecommunications
  • Insurance
  • Banks and financial institutions
  • Pharmaceutical companies and industry
  • Consulting
  • Academic research (doctoral, post-doctoral)
  • Teaching
