Today, mathematics counts as a key technology. Intellectual capability and rigour, logical argumantation and an analytical approach to the resolution of problems are increasingly called for in a number of career fields. Hence, corresponding qualifications are prerequisite for the design and delivery of modern mathematics teaching in secondary schools.
Students receive a preparation for careers as teachers at state schools (Lehramt). Alternatively, studies are also suitable for non-school career areas which require a sound grounding in mathematics, the sciences, or engineering.
