Dual study model Applied Mathematics (Bachelor)

Are you interested in financial mathematics, actuarial mathematics, operations research and stochastics or in technomathematics? Then you have come to the right place!

The study program Applied Mathematics with the degree Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) at the Department of Mathematics and Natural Sciences provides a broad practice-oriented university education for these and related fields. It offers the possibility of specialization in the fields of business mathematics and technomathematics and lays the foundation, among other things, for the consecutive master's programs in Applied Mathematics and Data Science or for transferring to a master's program at another university.

The Applied Mathematics (B.Sc.) program is accredited by the ASIIN agency. It has been awarded the seal of approval of the Accreditation Council.

Interlocking of theory and practical phases

The dual study model Applied Mathematics, which will be offered from the summer semester 2023, is integrated into the regular Bachelor's program. The students of the dual study programs study in the theory phases together with the regular students in the semester association and work in the cooperating company during the lecture-free periods.

In addition, the dual student completes the following practical phases in the cooperating company:

  • as part of an elective course in the 3rd or 4th semester and a project in the 5th semester
  • in the practical phase (BPP) at the beginning of the 6th semester and for the preparation of the bachelor thesis

No admission restriction, NC-free study program


Lectures are held in German.

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


Personal suitability for the course of study can be well assessed on the basis of school performance in mathematics. Admission requirements include the school-leaving qualifications:

  • general university entrance qualification
  • subject-related university entrance qualification valid in Hesse
  • a technical college entrance qualification valid in Hesse.

An internship before the start of the study program is not required.

However, a familiarization phase of at least four weeks in the cooperating company is desirable before the start of studies.

Study modules in the form of lectures, exercises and project work convey the qualifications and competencies. The Study programm flyer (in german only) provides an overview.


    The program, which can be started in either the winter or summer semester, consists of a compulsory area in which the mathematical fundamentals are taught. This is supplemented by a wide range of electives, which determine the direction of specialization. The study program ends with a practical phase (BPP), which our students spend in the cooperating company. The program concludes with an independent Bachelor's thesis.

    The first point of contact for most questions about studying is the Student Service Center, or SSC for short. In addition to general student counseling and information on the details of the application process, advice on the organization or financing of studies is also available here. Student Service Center (SSC)

    If you have any questions specifically related to the dual study program model, the Dual Study Center will be happy to help. A lot of information about dual studies can also be found at Dual studieren am Fachbereich MN.

    If you have questions about the degree program, contact Prof. März.

    In addition, a lot of useful information has been compiled in the Erstsemesterbroschüre first-semester brochure (in german only).

    Once you have started your studies, these are probably the most important pages:

    The link my.h-da (is also stored under Quicklinks) takes you to the university information system for students. Here you can

    • print out all the certificates you need yourself (study certificates, Bafög certificate and the receipt for the fees you have paid).
    • view information about your exams and grades
    • register for or deregister from exams.
    • register for courses.
    • view your course schedule and the course catalog.
    • compile your individual timetable.

    At you will find brief instructions for registering for exams, viewing grades, and much more.

    Semester dates: Here you can find the dates for exams and events for all courses of study. This page can also be accessed directly via quicklinks.

    Timetables: This page contains the links to the PDFs with the current timetables for all degree programs.

    Announcements of all examination boards (PA)

    Students following the dual study model Applied Mathematics can change to the regular study program Applied Mathematics at any time.


    The dual study model must not be confused with dual training! In a dual education, the practical part takes place in a training company, the theoretical part usually at a vocational school. After graduation, you are a journeyman or skilled worker. In the dual study model, the theory is taught at a university and the title Bachelor of Science is awarded, which qualifies for a Master's degree.

    Specializations in Technomathematics and Business Mathematics

    In the course of your studies, you can specialize in the fields of technomathematics or business mathematics through a relevantly chosen mathematical seminar, a corresponding mathematical project and a suitable bachelor thesis.

    If at least 30 CP have been completed from the modules assigned to the specialization, this can be shown on the transcript. The details are regulated by §9 of the BBPO of the Bachelor's program in Applied Mathematics as well as the corresponding module handbook.

    In addition, recurring elective courses serve the specialization:

    Elective subjects Technomathematics (excerpt)

    • Differential geometry
    • Physics
    • Fundamentals of systems theory
    • Pattern recognition
    • Engineering mechanics 1 and 2
    • Fluid mechanics

    Elective subjects Business Mathematics (excerpt)

    • Introduction to special methods of financial mathematics
    • Securities analysis
    • Personal insurance
    • Derivative financial products
    • Quality management

    In addition, these elective subjects are always supplemented by current offerings, some of them from external sources.
