Bachelor of Science; tuition language: German
At the Technical University of Darmstadt, the Bachelor of Science programme Mathematics can be studied in the two fields:
The field of study Mathematics combines fundamentals in a broad range of mathematical areas with the free choice of a non-mathematical minor.
The field of Study Mathematics with Economics, though in general similar to the Mathematics version, puts more emphasis on the areas of mathematics with an application in Business Studies. The minors are clearly stipulated and must have their origins in Computer Science and Busiess Studies.
The decision for one of the two fields of study must be indicated when applying. However, as the mathematical fundamentals in the first and second semester are the same for both fields of study of the Bachelor’s programme, a reorientation is easily possible.
Each of the two fields of study can be supplemented by a bilingual certificate (English) throughout the course of the studies.
The objective of the bilingual versions is to give the students the opportunity to acquire skills in English mathematical terminology and thus qualify students in an extraordinary way for their future activities in an international environment.
An internship is not mandatory; particularly when studying Business Mathematics, however, it is definitely recommended. A programme-relevant in-company or industrial internship can be integrated into the programme for credit.

Please note that admission to the Master’s Degree programme may also depend on additional requirements. This particularly applies to non-consecutive courses of study (meaning with a Bachelor’s degree in a different area of focus or field of study than the desired Master’s degree programme) and to applicants of other universities. For further questions please contact the respective departmental advisor’s office.

As Mathematics is a fundamental science, graduates of Mathematics are sought after by nearly all economic sectors.
They attend to intra and extra-mathematical problems and collect, analyse, and treat them with the corresponding mathematical methods. Structured and analytical thinking as well as abstraction abilities are particularly sought after. Complex problems are to be solved with a systematic and target-oriented approach.
The labor market of business, industry, administration, and science has a need for highly trained mathematicians in a variety of occupational fields. Insurance companies, banks, market research and polling institutes, consulting firms, software and systems companies, engineering firms, or research institutes are among potential employers.
