In the first semester all students are required to complete introductory courses that lay the common mathematical foundations. Starting from the second semester students must choose one of the following three specializations: Applied Analysis, Industrial Mathematics, and Financial Mathematics. Applied Analysis is aimed at applications of analysis in problems that arise in natural sciences and industry. Industrial Mathematics is intended to provide the necessary tools for solving practical mathematical problems of engineering. Industrial Mathematics is more oriented towards industrial applications, while Applied Analysis yields a deeper theoretical background. The Financial Mathematics Specialization is designed to give the necessary mathematical knowledge to work in the areas of insurance, investments, and banking. In the last two semesters of the programme, students are required to write a Master’s thesis under the supervision of a faculty member, and at the end of the programme they must successfully pass an oral Final Examination held before a committee.
Graduates of the Applied Mathematics Master’s programme are much sought after in the labour market, and they have an opportunity to pursue a scientific career by entering a doctoral programme in Mathematics.
