Master in Computational Mathematics

General

Program Description

Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Study Branch

Computational Mathematics

Branch Profile

Computational Mathematics has a distinct focus on the important areas of applied mathematics relative to other branches of Information and Communication Technology, which the students can use when dealing with practical problems in the workplace. Students gain a solid base for a career, or can continue in a doctoral programme focusing on the development of new methods for computational solutions of engineering problems with particular application in R&D. Computational Mathematics is a branch of the study programme of Information and Communication Technology.

Key Learning Outcomes

Knowledge

The graduates in this study programme possess a broad and deep state-of-the-art knowledge and understanding of the branch of information technology, and a practical knowledge of applied mathematics, along with the selected areas of application. The knowledge in mathematics acquired during the Master’s studies constitutes an appropriate theoretical basis for further doctoral studies.

Skills

The graduates in this study programme can search for, sort out and interpret the relevant information to solve a defined practical problem. They can also deal with complex problems independently and creatively, using selected procedures that make use of information and communication technology as well as applied mathematics.

- General competencies:

A graduate is able to make independent and responsible decisions in new or changing contexts or in a developing environment with respect to broader social consequences, to coordinate the operation of a team and bear ultimate responsibility for the results. They possess communication skills that enable them to express the essence of a problem, to sum up their own opinions and the opinions of other team members in a comprehensible way, and to express the nature of technical problems. They are prepared for further studies in the doctoral programme focused on the utilization of applied mathematics.

Occupational Profiles of Graduates

With a good understanding of the theoretical aspects of mathematics, informatics and communication technology, a graduate is qualified for flexible adaptation to the requirements of the workplace, including research and development. A graduate can find employment practically in all areas that use information and communication technology, regardless of the subject field.
