Special Features TU Darmstadt offers a Double Degree Programme at 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.
