Solving many of today's problems requires a solid understanding of both mathematics and informatics. Saarland University was quick to recognize this link and established three academic chairs in the combined areas of mathematics and computer science. The Master's degree programme 'Mathematics and Computer Science' is unique in Germany as it offers students the opportunity to study this important field with equal weighting given to each discipline.

Graduates from the Saarland University programme have excellent career prospects in all of the fields in which mathematicians and computer scientists traditionally work. Exciting job opportunities also arise in research and development departments, in the financial sector, e-commerce, the automotive and mechanical engineering industries, in the medical and health sectors, in the pharmaceutical industry and in telecommunications. With their knowledge and skills in both academic disciplines, graduates are well placed to provide balanced input and to benefit from the very varied career opportunities open to them.
