Special features regarding the equipmentThe department maintains three excellently equipped computer rooms for teaching with a total of 48 computer workstations, each one equipped with the software necessary for the studies. Further characteristics are, for example, campus-wide WiFi, the high performance computers Cray XC40 (HORNET) and access to the parallel computers of the Simtech Excellence Cluster. All lecture halls, practice rooms and numerous student study areas are located near the mathematical institutes in the centre of the campus, as are the S-Bahn connection, the refectory and cafeterias, and the central library.
Special features regarding research activitiesThe broad spectrum of mathematical research with international standing ranges from the fundamentals of pure to applied mathematics in industry and research. Students are thus involved in projects from current fields of research at an early stage. A special feature is the broad interdisciplinary networking, which makes full use of the strengths of the University of Stuttgart and the metropolitan region: i) Cooperation with physics and the natural and engineering sciences. ii) Numerous industry contacts in the course of the "Cybervalley" initiative (machine learning, big data).
Support for foundersStudents and research assistants at the University of Stuttgart are supported by the Technology Transfer Initiative when setting up a business.
Other special featuresA current survey shows that almost 100% of all Stuttgart Mathematics graduates are in employment after a short time. In addition to the usual sectors for Mathematics such as insurance companies, software companies, banks and management consultancies etc. 38% of Stuttgart graduates find work in the motor vehicle industry. This high proportion of Mathematics graduates in the automotive sector is unique in Germany. This illustrates the interdisciplinary networking and cross-faculty cooperation in research and teaching.
