Mathematics and Natural Sciences
The Natural Sciences deal with natural laws and natural phenomena. This involves conducting experiments in the laboratory or in nature and developing theories and models.
Mathematics is considered an auxiliary science for this purpose and deals with numbers, geometric forms, and the structures and systems behind them.
In the Natural Sciences, a distinction is made between the sciences of inanimate and animate nature. The inanimate sciences include Chemistry, Physics, Astronomy, and Geology, while Genetics, Biology, Physiology, and Anthropology are the sciences of living nature.
Depending on your chosen major, the programme concludes with a Bachelor's or Master's degree in Science, Engineering, or Education.
Although Mathematics and Natural Sciences are considered separate fields of study, they are also the basis of Engineering Sciences and can therefore be found in every engineering degree programme.
Typical tasks of a mathematician and a natural scientist are, for example:
– developing and setting up theories and models
– solving mathematical problems
– perform experiments
– observe, describe, explore, compare, and measure data
