    Students with permanent health impairments receive support in the Department of Mathematics according to their individual needs and health condition. Depending on the type of impairment, reasonable adjustments such as time extensions for examinations or examinations in a separate room are possible. In concrete terms, there are currently several autistic students enrolled on mathematics degree programmes.

In addition to the usual sectors for for mathematicians, 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 is borne out by the interdisciplinary networking and interdisciplinary cooperation in research and teaching.
