Bachelor's Programme

Studying Mathematics

You enjoy logical connections, tricky tasks and surprising insights? Then studying mathematics is a good choice. The career prospects for graduates of mathematics have remained excellent for decades and the course of study allows an intensive occupation with one of the most important cultural techniques of our civilization.

Find your field of study

Studying mathematics means acquiring the prerequisites for interesting, problem-oriented and promising professional activities in a wide range of fields.

The Bachelor's programme is characterised by a broad study of basic mathematical subjects with intensive support, exercises in small groups, a wide range of subsidiary subjects and a great freedom of choice in the main subjects. In addition, you have the opportunity to acquire the so-called bilingual certificate, which proves your knowledge in the scientific language English at the end of your Bachelor's degree.

There is something for every type: Are you more of a tinkerer and thinker? If so, then mathematics is the right course for you. Here you can choose between many different specialisations and specialisation options. And a wide range of subsidiary subjects allows you to think outside the box.

If you prefer to work in an applied way, the Business Mathematics programme is the right choice, because it focuses on mathematical fields with applications in economics and computer science.

Even a bachelor's degree in mathematics qualifies you for a career start. However, changing to our consecutive Master's programmes is just as easy. And if you still haven't had enough: How about a doctorate?

In the mandatory modules in mathematics you will acquire fundamental knowledge and skills for a broadly-based education in mathematics.

In the mandatory electives in mathematics you can focus on various areas in which you can later specialise in several of the seven research areas in the Master’s course.

The cross-disciplinary electives and mandatory modules allow you to acquire cross-disciplinary skills such as soft skills and the ability to consider mathematics from other angles.

Your subsidiary subject, which you can basically choose yourself, allows representative study of a second academic field offering, for example, links to professional applications. Typical subsidiaries include physics, computer studies, economics and chemistry. You can, however, apply to study any subject that is taught at this level at TU Darmstadt as a subsidiary – just ask us!

In the mandatory modules in mathematics you will acquire fundamental knowledge and skills in mathematics with an initial focus on optimisation and stochastics that are of particular relevance to economics.

The mandatory electives in mathematics give you the opportunity to round off the mathematical profile of the course.

The cross-disciplinary electives and mandatory modules allow you to acquire cross-disciplinary skills such as soft skills and the ability to consider mathematics from other angles.

The subsidiary subject economics introduces the fundamentals of business administration and economics and gives you the opportunity to start focusing on specific fields of application.

The subsidiary subject computer science teaches the skills necessary to apply mathematical and economic models with the aid of computers.
