Mathematics

Master of Science

Mathematik, M.Sc.

Description

The research-oriented Master of Science programme Mathematics is offered in three fields of study: Mathematics; Mathematics with a non-mathematical major; Business Mathematics. They differ in the possibilities for specialisation within the overall programme.

In the course of the programme, the following areas of research are taught: Algebra; Analysis; Geometry and Approximation; Logic; Numerical Analysis; Optimisation; Stochastics.

Field of study “Mathematics”

In the field of study “Mathematics”, two of the seven areas of research are studied as a major. Choosing a minor from the broad range of fields of study available at the TU Darmstadt is mandatory. Within the Studium Generale, courses from other programmes or language courses can be included into the degree programme, as well. Mathematics, minor and Studium Generale will be studied at a 60:15:10 ratio.

Field of study “Interdisciplinary Mathematics”

In the field of study “Interdisciplinary Mathematics”, only one instead of two mathematical majors is studied, together with additional courses in mathematics. A choice of non-mathematical courses, a minor and the area “Mathematics in a broader context” provide this field's of study interdisciplinary character. Mathematics, major, minor and Studium Generale will be studied at a 40:25:10:10 ratio. Minor and major can be the same.

Field of study “Business Mathematics”

In the field of study Business Mathematics”, only one instead of two mathematical majors is studied, together with additional courses in mathematics. A special emphasis is placed on the two business-relevant areas of Optimisation and Stochastics. In the Non-mathematical courses and in the minor, Economics and Business Information Systems, respectively, are obligatory. ”Mathematics in a broader context" and Studium Generale give this programme an interdisciplinary character as well.

Special Features TU Darmstadt offers a Double Degree Programmeat a partner university for this course.

While a Bachelor’s degree focuses mainly on the fundamentals of the field, the Master’s degree serves to upgrade the qualifications of graduates and to analyse the subject based on research. The Master’s degree focuses more than the Bachelor’s degree on enabling and requiring students to adopt their own major focus.

For these reasons it is recommended that students complete a Master’s degree.

Mathematics – Why? What? What for? Who? How? Where? Further information? You will find answers to these questions here.

Upon successful completion of a Master of Science degree, there is the opportunity to begin working towards a Ph.D. either at the TU Darmstadt or at another national or international university: Ph.D. at TU Darmstadt

As Mathematics are a fundamental science, graduates of Mathematics are sought after by nearly all economic sectors.

They attend to intra and extra-mathematical problems, collect them, analyse them 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.
