Program description

Master Mathematics/Applied Mathematics

The Master’s degree program in Mathematics deepens the knowledge acquired in the ETH Zurich Bachelor’s degree program 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 program 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 program 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.

In the second case, some courses must be taken from applied fields called focus areas. In addition, one application area must be selected.

Students only need to decide at the end of the program which degree they want to apply for.
