DTU and KAIST, the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, offer a dual MSc degree in mathematics.
The dual degree programme provides you with a profound and wide knowledge of mathematics both of a practical as well as a theoretical nature.
Dual degree programme
The dual degree programme is an MSc programme of two years or four semesters open to MSc students in mathematics at DTU and KAIST. The programme consists of three course work semesters followed by the master's thesis which you write during the fourth semester.
You study at KAIST for a period of two consecutive semesters, either the second and third semesters (and you write your master's thesis at DTU), or the third and fourth semesters (and you write your master's thesis at KAIST).
You will be assigned a DTU supervisor as well as a KAIST supervisor. Your fellow students will be domestic as well as international students, and the teaching is in English.
KAIST uses a credit transfer system similar to ECTS, the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System, applied by DTU where three KAIST credits equal ten ECTS credits.
During the four semesters, you must obtain 18 KAIST credits and 60 ECTS credits.
In general, you may mix credits from DTU and KAIST. You have to choose courses at your host university with a minimum of academic overlap to courses at your home university.
In case of course failure you may substitute some KAIST courses with DTU courses and vice versa upon approval by both your host and home supervisors.
Upon graduation, you will be awarded the master's degrees of both universities with a special designation of the dual degree programme:
Admission procedure for DTU students
