Brief Course Description/Objective
In today's typically inter- and multidisciplinary working environment, there is a strong need for professionals with a strong theoretical background, capable of analysing and effectively solving mathematical problems in engineering applications. Our Master's degree in Applied Mathematics with a specialisation in Engineering Mathematics is unique in the country and represents a niche in this field. Applied mathematics is a branch of mathematics that focuses on mathematical methods applied in engineering and natural sciences, industry and economics, modelling, analysing and studying problems, developing and applying methods to solve them, and providing algorithmic tools for their study. The aim of the course is to train mathematicians who are able to effectively model and solve problems that arise in real-life applications, within engineering, natural sciences, industry and management. The curriculum follows the recommendations of the SIAM, putting emphasis to application-oriented mathematics, practical applications, modelling and communication skills, team work, computer programming and high-performance computing.
