Major/Specialisation

Our Computational Life Science programme focusses extensively on teaching you a broad-base of the core elements of mathematics. We supplement this with fundamental courses in medical-natural sciences and informatics.

At our Universität zu Lübeck, you can opt to specialise in natural sciences, imaging and image processing or genetic epidemiology.

Job Prospects

Mathematicians with a solid education at the crossroads of mathematics, life science and computer technologies have above-average prospects to get a job in a sector that has become almost independent. For example, in addition to pharmaceutical and biotech firms, medical engineering and software companies are showing a strong interest in our graduates as mathematical modellers or algorithm developers to work as statisticians or data analysts in their life science or development department.
