Key learning outcomes

Undergraduates demonstrate knowledge and understanding of basic mathematical techniques (in calculus and analysis, linear algebra, discrete mathematics, probability and statistics, geometry, numerical methods), fundamentals of information technologies (knowledge of computers and programming), fundamentals of cybernetics, physics and mechanics. Undergraduates are able to read mathematical text, actively use logical constructions and rigorous arguments for solving mathematical problems, and construct elementary proofs within abstract mathematical systems and models. Undergraduates are able to actively use the matrix, differential and integral calculus to solve particular problems; to work with the notions of linear space, linear mapping, with the concepts of the theory of relational structures, graph theory, differential and analytic geometry, probability theory and mathematical statistics; to apply the methods of descriptive statistics to summarize the information from the data and interpret statistical results; to develop algorithms based on numerical methods and apply them to real world problems. Undergraduates have intermediate English language knowledge (min. Level B1 of Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). Undergraduates are able to find relevant information and study scientific literature; to produce individually documents with mathematical content; to use computer algebra packages; to implement simple mathematical algorithms in advanced programming languages such as Matlab; to communicate mathematics in a clear, concise and rigorous manner appropriate to the context; to operate in teams in order to plan, process, report and present a mathematically based project; write and orally present and defend a major project (bachelor thesis).

Profile of the programme

This study programme is designed as an academic one. It consists of blocks of theoretical courses dealing with the field of analysis, linear algebra, discrete mathematics, probability and statistics, geometry, numerical methods and fundamentals of information technologies. At the same time, it comprises a blocks of courses focusing on exploiting theoretical background in practice. Undergraduates have sufficient skills to applytheir gained knowledge to solving mathematically formulated problems of engineering and scientific kind and problems from economics and management. This study programme is designed to equip the future graduate with theoretical background and skills necessary for study in a followup Master?s study programme Mathematics. In addition, after successfully completing this study programme, the graduate can apply for positions in various fields, such as an economic and financial analysts, in consultancy firms operating in the fields of economics and financial services.
