The research-oriented Master of Science Mathematics course is offered in three fields of study: Mathematics; Interdisciplinary mathematics; Business Mathematics . They differ in their minor subjects and specialization options and the different proportions of the subjects in the entire course.

The following research areas can be the subject of the specialization: Algebra; Analysis; Geometry and approximation; Logic; Numerics; Optimization; Stochastics.



Two of the seven research areas are studied in depth. It is compulsory to choose a minor from the wide range of subjects represented at TU Darmstadt. In addition, as part of the Studium Generale, events from other courses as well as language courses can be incorporated into the course, which thus has an interdisciplinary character despite the focus on mathematics. Mathematics, minor and general studies are in a ratio of about 60:15:10.


Interdisciplinary mathematics course

Only one mathematical subject is studied in depth. There is also a mathematical supplementary area. The non-mathematical specialization area, the minor subject, the general area and the Studium Generale give this field of study its interdisciplinary character. Mathematics, major. The ratio of the minor and general studies is around 40: 25: 10: 10. Minor and non-mathematical specialization subject can be the same.


Major in business mathematics

Only one mathematical subject from an application-oriented research direction - either optimization or stochastics - is studied in depth. There is also a mathematical supplementary area in which the subject that these two did not choose has to be chosen. In the non-mathematical specialization area and as a minor subject, economics and computer science are fixed. Mathematics, major. There are mathematics (research area stochastics or optimization), specialization (economics), minor (business informatics) and general studies in a ratio of around 40: 25: 10: 10.




Since mathematics is a basic science, graduates of mathematics are in demand in almost all economic areas.
You take on both internal and external mathematical problems, record them, analyze them and treat them with the appropriate mathematical methods. Structured and analytical thinking is particularly in demand, as is the ability to abstract. Complex problems need to be solved with a systematic and targeted approach.

The job market in business, industry, administration and science has a need for well-trained mathematicians in a variety of professional fields. Potential employers can be insurance companies, banks, market and opinion research institutes, management consulting firms, software and system houses, engineering offices or research institutes.
