This degree programme is designed to develop both the depth and breadth in the students' knowledge of applied mathematics and is also intended to prepare graduates for careers in public and private sector for which BSc degree in applied mathematics is required. Upon successful completion of this programme students should have the knowledge and skills needed for continuing their education on the next level – second cycle. Depending on their preferences students can through elective courses acquire additional knowledge from various areas of mathematics, didactics and computer science.

Learning outcomes related to competencies and skills specific to applied math:

Upon succesful completion of the programme students will be able to:

  • Identify, formulate, abstract, and solve mathematical problems that use tools from applied mathematics,
  • design mathematical models, apply mathematical analysis and problem-solving skills in a broad range of intellectual domains (e.g., biological, physical, or social sciences and engineering) in public or private service,
  • implement applied math models,
  • efficiently use statistical models.

Learning outcomes related to competencies and skills specific to computer science:

Upon succesful completion of the programme students will be able to:

  • use computer technology, software, and algorithmic processes necessary in quantitative analysis and mathematical modeling,
  • design, implement, and evaluate programs in various programming languages. ,

Learning outcomes - generic

Why study at the Department of Mathematics?


Mathematics as a scientific discipline acts fascinating and is positioned on the top of the pyramid of knowledge. It is a set of ideas that are themselves beautiful enough to engross human attention. It is impossible to imagine any serious scientific discipline without mathematics.

Mathematics occupies a very important place in modern science in which very complex and difficult problems are often solved by reducing them to the mathematical expressions, formulas and equations whose resolution can come up with solutions.

Job opportunities for graduates of the Department of Mathematics are numerous, so that almost all the students immediately after graduation quickly find employment. The best students are offered positions at the Faculty. Students whose major is in mathematical education and teaching easily find employment as teachers or professors of mathematics and / or computer science in primary and secondary schools, and students of other majors are offered a number of places outside educational sector, such as: banks, software engineering house.

Mathematicians and computer scientists are among rare experts who have no problem to find a suitable job.
