The doctorate signifies a proven ability to conduct independent, deepened scientific research. Under the auspices of the Combined Faculty of Mathematics, Engineering and Natural Sciences, we confer the doctoral degree Dr. rer. nat.  in the subjects of mathematics and computer science.

Mathematikon Library

Students interested in Mathematics, Computer Science, or an interdisciplinary field, pursuing a B.Sc., M.Sc., or M.Ed., and aiming for a career in research, teaching, or the private sector, will find here in Heidelberg a full range of first-class courses for a challenging and enriching educational experience in an intellectually stimulating environment with historical cachet.

Carl Zeiss Foundation Funding Program "Breakthroughs" - Model-Based AI 

The Carl Zeiss Foundation's project funding program "Breakthroughs" supports Professor Dr. Jürgen Hesser and apl. Professor Ullrich Köthe in their research project "Physical Models and Deep Learning for Imaging and Cancer Treatment" in establishing a center on model-based artificial intelligence to improve cancer treatment.

"How can knowledge from a specific subject area, such as cancer research, be implemented in Deep Learning methods to achieve more effective processing or problem solving?" As part of the project investigating how the efficiency of AI systems in relation to cancer research can be supported by pre-programmed knowledge, a center on model-based artificial intelligence is set to be established.

An interdisciplinary team from the departments of computer science, mathematics, physics and medicine under the directorship of Prof. Dr. Jürgen Hesser is working on the concrete application of artificial intelligence in the treatment of cancer and is analyzing various issues in AI research for this purpose.

The Carl Zeiss Foundation pursues the goal of promoting research and teaching, particularly in the natural sciences and engineering. We are therefore very honored by the trust they have placed in us.
