Pre-course Mathematics for Management & Technology

Mathematics plays an essential role in economics or engineering science. Therefore, you should have sufficient mathematical knowledge in the beginning of your studies in Management and Technology.

In the pre-course Mathematics for Management and Technology you repeat essential topics of school mathematics. It helps you to refresh your previous knowledge and compensate for deficits.




The pre-course Mathematics for Management & Technology 2019 takes place from Tuesday, October 1 to Friday,  October 11.



The preparatory course starts in the Audimax or Siemens-Hörsaal (room 0980) on the main campus of the Technical University of Munich. The second week takes place in the Carl von Linde Hörsaal (room 1200).



Please note, that this course requires prior registration.

In the meantime you may check your mathematical knowledge with one of the following self tests:

Course program

The course usually lasts two weeks, from Monday to Friday. Every day the preliminary course is divided into a lecture part and subsequent tutorials, which consist of a large central tutorial and tutorials in small groups.

Course Content

Within two weeks we'll repeat and deepen important topics of school mathematics, which you will encounter again in the first semesters of your studies. Priorities are

  • mathematical language and symbols,
  • equations and inequalities,
  • sequences,
  • limits,
  • differentiation and integration,
  • vectors and systems of equations.

While repeating this content you learn simultaneously about the usual mathematical mode of operation in university. In addition, you have the opportunity to get to know your future university and fellow students.

Please note: In addition to the school mathematics, the preliminary course gives you an insight into higher mathematics. The lectures in your study do not presuppose the content of the pre-course but start again from "zero".


In the tutorials, you will repeat, practice and deepen the topics discussed earlier in the lecture, using tasks and examples in small work groups. You support competent tutors if you have questions.

In which group you are divided and where your exercise takes place, you will learn in the lecture.
