Specialisation

Section Specialisation

In this section, modules associated to lectures resp. lectures with exercise classes amounting to 18 - 21 credit points (CP) from the module catalogue for the chosen specialisation (see below) have to be completed .

In addition, reading courses amounting to 12 CP have to be completed. The latter usually take place with semester-changing topics that are often based on current mathematical research. Towards the end of the lecture period of each semester, the reading courses offered in the following semester for the respective specialisation areas will be presented as part of the information sessions of the individual research focuses.
