The Dual Degree programme in Mathematics between DTU and KAIST offers a unique opportunity for students who want to specialize in mathematics and pursue an international career in Europe or Asia. Both universities are ‘brands’ in their respective regions and the strong profile of the universities will be an asset in the future career of the students.
Mathematics is a DTU-KAIST Dual Degree programme, which means that you get to spend one year at DTU and one year at KAIST, Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology. You get a Danish and an international degree, which gives you personal and academic skills with an international foundation.
Mathematics is present is many aspects of our everyday lives—and the use of mathematics is becoming more and more widespread in, e.g., information technology, financial institutions, industry applications, drug development, etc. There is a strong demand for mathematical models, and students graduating from the Mathematics Dual Degree programme will be qualified for demanding positions in industry as well as in research.
The Mathematics Dual Degree programme is based on the expertise of DTU and KAIST within the aspects of pure and applied mathematics covered by the two institutions. The programme targets students who wish to profit from the two universities’ long-standing traditions and combined knowledge.
The main focus of the Mathematics Dual Degree programme depends on the chosen specialization. Among the key topics taught at the two universities are harmonic analysis and functional analysis, PDEs and inverse problems, graph theory, algebra, and coding theory as well as cryptography and scientific computing
Studying abroad jump-starts your career as employers are always looking for graduates with an international outlook and intercultural competencies. Upon graduation, you are eligible to enter a PhD programme, but you are also qualitied for demanding positions in industry.
Upon graduation, you will be qualified to work within a wide range of areas (depending on your specialization), e.g.:
- engineering, especially the parts related to modelling and optimization
- coding and cryptography.
Graduates from the Mathematics Dual Degree, who wish to qualify for management positions in research and development—be it in industry or academia—will need additional intensive and solid research education.
Graduating from the MSc programme with a high grade point average will qualify you for admission to PhD studies—either as an industrial PhD with concurrent employment in a company, or as a regular PhD student.
Admission and deadlines
1 December – for start in the fall semester
1 June – for start in the spring semester*
*Students who started at DTU on 1 September may send the application form by 10 September.
The KAIST-DTU Dual Degree Master’s program is only open to students, who have been formally admitted to DTU’s regular MSc in Mathematical Modelling and Computation program. Therefore, it is not possible to apply for admission directly to the dual degree program.

• Motivated and dedicated students
• Above average GPA
• Strong English Language skills.
Pre-approval of courses
• Courses taken abroad at KAIST must be approved by the DTU professor responsible for the individual Dual Degree programme.
Students have the possibility of spending one year at KAIST during 3 different periods as indicated below. However, it is strongly recommended that students – especially international students – spend at least their 1st and even 2nd semester of their master studies at DTU in order to get familiar with the university, study program and fellow students.
• Period One: 1st + 2nd semester
• Period Two: 2nd + 3rd semester
• Period Three: 3rd + 4th semester (writing Master Thesis abroad with both KAIST and DTU supervisor – examination at DTU)
