Admission to second degree studies is restricted to persons who hold the title of magister (MSc), engineer, licencjat (BSc) or equivalent.
The candidates are admitted according to the ranking list based on the adjusted score indicated on the completed studies diploma and the compatibility or relativity of completed studies with the selected second degree course.
A first degree course is compatible with the selected second degree course if it is the same type of course (with the licencjat (BSc), engineer or equivalent title).
The program is intended for students who have completed the bachelor’s degree in Mathematics (lub: have been awarded the Bachelor of Mathematics degree), or a degree in a related area, and who wish to deepen their knowledge of mathematical sciences. The Master of Mathematics programme offers intensive, high level training in principles of mathematical sciences. The programme also provides a good basis for Ph.D. studies in mathematics.
The studies offer the following specialisations: Mathematical Computer Science, Mathematics and Computer Science in Economics, Mathematics and Computer Science in Finance and Insurance, Mathematical Modeling and also Teaching Mathematics. The students choose their specialisation after the first semester during which they participate in specialised courses. All their qualifications are listed in education standards for mathematical studies. They will be able to work professionally in different areas of mathematics (including teaching at primary or secondary school), or to use mathematical tools in sectors of industry, information technology or finance and insurance.
The programme includes obligatory courses in algorithmic methods, combinatorial analysis, control theory, differential equations, differential geometry, discrete mathematics and mathematical foundations of computer science, mathematical programming, operations research, partial differential equations, real and complex analysis, stochastic processes, topics in discrete mathematics and topology.
During the last three semesters the students participate in monographic lectures, general and Master’s thesis seminars.
At the end of the programme the students will write Master’s theses and take a Master’s examination.
