Key learning outcomes

The graduates will obtain a good knowledge of the concepts and methods of the main branches of mathematics. In addition, they will gain a more profound expertise in one of the following areas: mathematical analysis and the theory of differential equations; discrete mathematics and graph theory, mathematical structures and coding theory; numerical mathematics and computer modelling; mathematical methods of optimization; geometry and geometrical modelling; probability theory and statistics, financial and actuarial mathematics, econometry. Each graduate acquires an intermediate level of proficiency in one major language (at least level B2 of the CEF framework). The graduates will master modern mathematical methods and improve their capabilities of creative analytical thinking. They will be able to create and analyze mathematical models of processes arising in natural and social sciences, carry out their computer simulations, and solve them using numerical methods. Furthermore, the graduates will be able to perform and independent search for relevant information, study the literature, interpret their findings and apply them to the solution of a particular problem. Other skills include the planning, execution, analysis and assessment of a large project (a Master's thesis), the ability to work within a group, to formulate arguments and to present their results (or the results of their group) in public.

Profile of the programme

This study programme is designed as an academic one. It consists of blocks of theoretical courses dealing with the field mathematical analysis and the theory of differential equations, discrete mathematics and graph theory coding theory, numerical mathematics and computer modeling, geometrical modeling, probability theory and statistics, financial and actuarial mathematics, econometry. The graduates will be able to participate in basic and applied research, work in analytical groups and in the academic sphere, including a subsequent doctoral study, or in the middle and upper management of enterprises, local governments, consulting companies and agencies, in positions of personal management. Graduates of the master degree course Mathematics Teaching at Secondary Schools are equipped with basic knowledge, skills and competencies that are necessary for the work of mathematics teachers at different types of secondary schools and higher vocational schools.
