Mathematics offers diverse methods for analysis and understanding, modelling and simulation, prediction and controlling processes in technology, biological sciences, medicine, economics, and society. The strengths of mathematics like in structural and conceptual clarity, transparency achieved through abstraction, as well as a broad field of application. It is no coincidence that mathematicians work in a wide variety of career areas and institutions. This bachelor's programme is normally followed by the master's programme in Oldenburg. The master's degree is equivalent to the earlier Diplom.
