Internships

Mandatory internship for the bachelor in Financial Mathematics

A six-week internship at a company or another organization with an economic-mathematical background should provide the necessary practical skills during the course of study. 

The purpose of the internship is to build an interconnection between relevant mathematical problems and the practical implementation of the knowledge acquired during the program of study. 

The internship also includes the subsequent presentation (about 20 minutes) of the internship report (about 15 pages). Before starting an internship, students must obtain an agreement with a lecturer in mathematics, computer science or economics to supervise this internship.

The compulsory module "Externes Praktikum Wirtschaftsmathematik", which provides 10 (PO2012) or 8 (PO2015) ECTS points, is considered a "subject-specific key qualification" and is not graded.

The exact procedure (registration, specifications for the report, etc.) is individually regulated by the supervisor. In general, additional bonus must be agreed in advance, before the beginning of the internship.

Ideally, copies of the employment contract and possibly the certificate of employment should be attached to the internship report for documentation purposes (after individual consultation with the supervising lecturer).

Regarding the application, the following rules apply: prior to the beginning of the internship, no explicit registration with the examination office is required (although the mentioned informal supervision commitment of a lecturer must exist). Once all the above services have been provided, the supervising lecturer will immediately inform the examination office Wirtschaftsmathematik in an informal manner. The documentation of the internship takes place solely through the respective lecturer.

Optional practical placement for the master of Mathematics or Computational Mathematics

You complete an extra-curricular internship in business, research, industry or administration and implement your acquired mathematical expertise in a specific applied situation.

Before starting, you should look for a lecturer at the Institute of Mathematics who is eager to supervise the internship.

The exact procedure (previous registration, specifications for the report, etc.) is individually regulated by the supervising lecturer. In general, additional bonus must be obtained in advance, before the beginning of the internship.

Ideally, copies of the employment contract and possibly the certificate of employment should be attached to the internship report for documentation purposes (after individual consultation with the supervising lecturer).

Regarding the application, the following rules apply: prior to the beginning of the internship, no explicit registration with the examination office is required (although, the mentioned informal supervision agreement of a lecturer should already exist). Once all the above-mentioned services have been provided, the supervising lecturer will immediately inform the Examinations Office Mathematics in an informal manner. The documentation of the internship takes place solely through the respective lecturer.

Internships for the teaching program

Depending on the type of teacher training, various internships are compulsory before and during the course of study:

Another tip: if you would like to actively and extensively teach already during your studies, then find out more about the project  Lehr:werkstatt. A credit transfer as a study-accompanying internship is possible.
