Faculty of Mathematics, Physics & Computer Science
Where would we be today without the many fascinating findings that have been made in the fields of mathematics, physics, and computer science? They play a crucial role in our everyday lives and have served as the starting point for a number of neighbouring disciplines. It goes without saying that these fields need scientists with vision and enthusiasm to make sure that creative sparks continue to reach research and teaching.
At our faculty, students and junior scholars have the chance to work in a highly creative research environment. Research prizes such as a European Advanced Grant, a Leibniz Prize, a Lichtenberg professorship, and a Humboldt Research Award bear witness to the strength of our cutting-edge research.
An international reputation
Our faculty's reputation continues to attract outstanding scholars from around the globe. They are drawn to the excellent research environment and proactive teaching on campus. This is also what students appreciate most, as is borne out by results of the evaluations that are conducted on a regular basis.
Research and teaching of the highest order
The Faculty of Mathematics, Physics & Computer Science has well-equipped laboratories, lecture halls and CIP pools, in addition to an HPC cluster with 97.6 teraflops (that’s a lot). The faculty's well-stocked library provides free access to a wide variety of e-books. Students also benefit from research-based internships and access to high-performance mathematical software. They can even write their bachelor's or master's theses while working as part of an international research team in a field such as robotics, computer graphics, algebraic geometry, dynamics and optimization, biological physics, or innovative materials and energy.
Exciting collaborations on campus
The faculty's institutes are active in interdisciplinary research associations and research training groups covering topics such as polymer and colloid science, molecular biosciences, high-pressure and high-temperature research, nonlinear dynamics, and complex systems.
