Master degree

General information for students of specializations guaranteed by the Department of Mathematics

Upon the successful completion of the Bachelor study programme and after the admission processing the student may continue his studies here on FNSPE in a 3-year follow-up Master's degree programme. This programme is also open to Bachelors from other colleges. Yet for the Bachelors from our faculty the admission tests may be considered as a part of the final Bachelor degree examination. Alumni of all the Bachelor degree specializations, with the exception of Practical Informatics, have the possibility to continue their studies in a follow-up Master's degree programme of their respective specialization and to finish it in 2 years time. It is because the concluding phase of the Bachelor degree specializations differs but slightly from the first year of the successive Master's degree programme of the respective specialization.

Students graduate from subject that will allow them to become experts in the selected field. Moreover, they continue in research activities that often examine the results of their Bachelor theses, initially in the form of a research project and then as a graduation thesis. Both research project and graduation thesis have to be approved by opponents and then upheld by the students before an expert committee.

The study results in a state final exam, which also includes the defence of the graduation thesis. In the study programme, a considerable amount of lessons is devoted just to the graduation thesis and it has the nature of the student's creative work. After the successful completion of the Master's degree study and after the admission processing the students may continue their studies in the postgraduate doctoral programme.

Specializations guaranteed by the Department of Mathematics

The study shielded by the Department of Mathematics at the FNSPE has an interdisciplinary nature based on the application of theoretical mindset of various scientific disciplines and engineering experience such as mathematical modelling of countless processes in nature and technology, in the fields of modern mathematical physics, theoretical informatics, discrete mathematics and software engineering applied primarily in natural sciences. In the undergraduate study programme of “Application of Natural Science” accredited at the FNSPE the Department of Mathematics guarantees the education in the three following specializations:
  1. Mathematical Engineering,
  2. Applied Mathematical and Stochastic Methods,
  3. Mathematical Informatics.
Mathematical Engineering
The condition for admission to this programme is graduating from all mathematical subjects of the group A.
The students widen their knowledge in the disciplines substantial for the development of mathematical models in numerous fields of science and engineering. Moreover, they acquire extensive knowledge in subjects associated with the effective use of modern top-notch informational technology. The specialization is thematically focused on the development and analysis of deterministic and stochastic models of processes in various fields of physical, technical, medicinal and economic researches. The assignments for graduate theses often come from public subscriptions.
The preparation and completion of the dissertation occurs during the last three years of the study, most often in direct succession to specified tasks, which are given by both lecturers of FNSPE and cooperating experts from research institutions, mainly from the Academy of Science of the Czech Republic and engineering practice.
The graduates of this specialization find their use in universities, research institutions and in those areas of social practice, where the addressed issues require the use of sophisticated mathematical and IT methods.
Applied Mathematical and Stochastic Methods
The condition for admission to this programme is graduating from all mathematical subjects of the group B.
This specialization is aimed at those students of group B mathematics, who desire to continue in the studies of mathematical disciplines with direct application in the world. Except for theoretical subjects (advanced parts of mathematical analysis, mathematical statistics, mathematical statistics, probability theory, information theory, numerical mathematics) a significant part of the programme is dedicated to the study of particular applications (traffic flow models, mathematical prediction in biology, statistical methods in practice, decision-making processes, deterministic chaos, interacting agent systems, neural networks, image processing, etc.). However, the main benefit for the profile of graduates is both acquiring high-quality theoretical basis in mathematical statistic disciplines that reflect current scientific trends and acquiring practical experience in representative areas of applied research.
The graduates of this specialization find their use in facilities involved in the management and optimization of traffic flows, in technical fields of engineering, construction, transport and energy industries, in analytical departments of private companies, in corporations engaged in statistical surveys and their evaluations, in problem-solving teams of research institutes and in financial institutions; namely in the sectors of engineering, transport, social and reliability data.
Mathematical Informatics
The condition for admission to this programme is graduating from all mathematical subjects of the group A.
Students acquire solid good mathematical foundation and solid education in the field of IT. They undergo both theoretical parts (mathematics with an emphasis of discrete and stochastic areas, algebra, information theory and coding, numerical methods, theory of computability, image processing) and practical subjects (programming languages, computer architecture, team software projects, programming techniques, object-oriented programming, operating systems, databases, computer networks, systems management, work with mainframe systems).
This specialization educates both brilliant programmers and top-notch theoretical IT experts; this outcome depends solely on the choice of the student. The graduates of this specialization find their application in the design, analysis and management of extensive software projects, in research institutions and consulting firms and practically wherever the addressed issue requires demanding mathematical and IT knowledge and vast computer experience.

Who takes care of the students?

Many employees of the Department of Mathematics of FNSPE take part in the education of Graduates (Masters). Moreover, operatives of many significant research institutes of The Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic (Institute of Computer Science, Institute of Information Theory and Automation, Institute of Thermomechanics) also participate at a considerable rate. Students have the opportunity to become a part of internationally acclaimed teams of FNSPE, which take part in the scientific inquiries of several research intentions and research centres.
