6 semesters
winter semester/ summer semester
Without admission restriction.


  • Opinion research institutes create complex statistics
  • Banks evaluate financial products
  • Development departments of technical companies design innovative products
  • Insurances tailor personal pension plans
  • Research institutes model biological processes

then often mathematicians are behind it. The Applied Mathematics programme with the Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree from the Department of Mathematics and Natural Sciences provides a broad, practice-oriented university education for these and related fields of work. It offers opportunities for specialization in the areas of business mathematics and mathematics in technology and science and lays the foundation for the consecutive Master's programs in Applied Mathematics and Data Science. You can find more detailed information on the program on the  website of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences.

Graduates of the Applied Mathematics (B.Sc.) programme can work in many industries, e.g. industrial companies, banks, public services, insurance companies, research institutes, IT services or management consultancies.

Building on the Bachelor's degree, the following Master's programmes are possible:
Applied Mathematics - Master of Science
Data Science - Master of Science


Study modules in the form of lectures, exercises, internships and project work convey the qualifications and skills for these practical fields. The program also includes a practical work phase and offers the possibility of a stay abroad. For this purpose, the fifth semester is recommended as a window of mobility. A detailed presentation of the study contents can be found in the module manual (German). The bachelor's degree qualifies students for a profession and enables them to transfer to the consecutive master's programs in Applied Mathematics and Data Science or to master's programmes at other universities. The degree programme in Applied Mathematics (B.Sc.) is accredited within the framework of the system accreditation of the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences according to the criteria of the Accreditation Council.


Personal aptitude for the course can be assessed well on the basis of academic performance in mathematics. Among other things, these school-leaving certificates are considered to be an admission requirement:

  • General qualification for university entrance
  • Subject-related university entrance qualification
  • Advanced technical college entrance qualification.

A detailed description of the admission requirements can be found in the Special Privisions of the Examination Regulations (German).
