Alumni Mathematics and Computer Science

The Chapter of Mathematics and Computer Science

The Alumni Chapter Mathematics and Computer Science cordially invites all alumni of our faculty to join Alumni Göttingen and shape the chapter together.

The chapter fosters connections between alumni, current students, and faculty members around the world and creates a platform for mutual meetings and exchange. It promotes the faculty and their students with expertise, networking, and donations. Here are just a few examples of chapter activities:

The Mathematics and Computer Science Alumni Chapter ...

  • awards several German scholarships to students of the faculty each year
  • assists the faculty in organizing an annual alumni event as part of the Göttingen Alumni Day
  • promotes open lectures together with the faculty
  • supports Girl's Day at the faculty
  • organizes online lectures by alumni for alumni and students
  • organizes fundraisers to support faculty and their students.

Alumni can also provide information from their own professional experience to mathematics students about the many career opportunities that a mathematics degree opens up, of which students often have limited knowledge. If you are interested, please fill out the appropriate questionnaire provided by the Academic Advising Center so that students can learn more about their career options through your example. The Academic Advising Center also occasionally invites mathematicians from the field to present their career paths to students. If you would like to participate, learn more here.

The Mathematics and Computer Science Chapter is part of Alumni Göttingen e.V., the central contact point for joint activities of the University of Göttingen and its alumni. With more than 4,000 members, Alumni Göttingen is represented in 88 countries.

Our chapter in the association has a long history. The precursor of the chapter is the "Verein zur Förderung der Mathematischen Statistik und Versicherungsmathematik e.V.", which was founded in 1988 and merged with "Alumni Göttingen e.V." in 2011.
