The Master’s degree programme in Mathematics deepens the knowledge acquired in the ETH Zurich Bachelor’s degree programme or equivalent degrees.
Here the students not only learn to understand the presented matter, they also acquire skills to practice mathematics independently. Therefore the lectures require more personal contributions.
After one year of in-depth studies, the Master's programme ends with a five-months Master's thesis, which does not focus on the mere understanding of mathematical concepts and methods anymore, but requires their independent advancement.
With the Master's degree students acquire the full qualification of a scientifically trained mathematician.
Students of the Master’s degree programme can opt either for a degree in Mathematics or in Applied Mathematics.
In the first case, core courses and electives can be selected from the fields of Pure or Applied Mathematics.
Students only need to decide at the end of the programme which degree they want to apply for.
