The Department of Mathematics is one of the founding departments of the University. As with most newly founded universities since the 1970s, it is not subdivided into institutes and / or chairs. Units are rather the professorships with their associated scientific and non-scientific staff. However, some of the units have joined to form larger working groups (AGs) which are organized in four main areas of teaching and research:
Apart from that, there are three central units: the dean's office with the administrative director of the department and further scientific and non-scientific staff for central scientific affairs and teaching duties (e.g. lectures for students of other departments), the Graduate School „Mathematics as a Key Technology“, as well as the „Kompetenzzentrum für Mathematische Modellierung in MINT-Projekten in der Schule (KOMMS)“ with their staff.
