  • Special features regarding teaching
    In learning centres, students are supported by staff and student tutors. The master's degree course in mathematics and technomathematics includes a "mathematical internship" with practice-oriented project work. In addition, the minor subject or technical focus subject can be strongly expanded. In the Master's degree course, in addition to individual courses, a Master's focus is identified each year, i.e. coordinated courses introduce students to a research area. Teacher training courses cover a spectrum from special needs education to the Teaching Qualification for Grammar and Comprehensive Schools.
