All graduates of the academic bachelor study programmes (or programmes of same or higher level elsewhere) are eligible for the admission to the master study programme Applied statistics, regardless of their field of study.
The programme comprises seven study modules: Biostatistics, Social sience statistics, Economic and Business statistics, Technical statistics, Official statistics, Mathematical statistics and Machine Learning.
The first three semesters take the form of lectures and laboratory practice, while the fourth semester is intended for the work on a master’s thesis under the guidance of the selected supervisor.«
The interdisciplinary master study program Computer science and mathematics admitts graduates of bachelor study programmes (or equivalent) in mathematics, computer science or related field.
This programme is designed for students with a strong interest in computer science. Its goals comprise the qualification for the development and usage of new information technologies, for research in the fields of mathematics and theoretical computer science, and the capability of rapid acquisition of new knowledge from the field of computer and information science and the related field of mathematics.
The need for application of computer technology is growing everywhere, and therefore graduates of this program can find employment in all branches of business and the public sector.
The master study programme Financial mathematics is designed for students wishing to work in the financial industry.
In addition to courses in probability, statistics and financial mathematics, students also take some courses at the Faculty of Economics and some pure mathematics courses.
Graduates of this programme can take active part in planning and development in financial institutions and financial departments of large companies or engage in scientific research at economic research institutions. They can find employment in major banks, insurance companies, stock brokerage companies, investment firms, pension companies, health benefits companies, public sector and public agencies, logistic sector (optimisation), economic research institutes and universities.
To enroll, a bachelor degree (or equivalent) in mathematics, financial mathematics or a related field is required.
The Master's study programme Mathematics is intended for students interested in pure and applied mathematics, for those who wish to pursue a PhD degree in mathematics. It offers maximum flexibility in the selection of courses.
Graduates can participate in planning, engineering, and development in a professional environment or engage in scientific research in mathematics, theoretical computer science, or theoretical mechanics. They can find employment in research and development companies using mathematical modelling, software development companies, mathematical or mathematics-related research institutions, and universities. A bachelor's degree in mathematics or a related field is required to enroll.
The basic goal of the Master's study program in Medical Physics is to train students to use physical principles to understand the biological and medical bases of disease and health, the ability to detect disease early with imaging and non-imaging diagnostic techniques and to develop, manage and monitor disease treatment procedures.
The program builds on interdisciplinarity and thus connects physics, medicine as well as many other sciences (e.g., computer science, biology, pharmacy). Students receive both theoretical and practical knowledge in these fields. The lecturers are established scientists on an international scale, involved in the clinical and research environment, which gives the study exceptional extent and quality. With the successful completion of the program, students become experts in the field of medical physics, thus further developing their careers both in practice and in academia.
The title of Master of Medical Physics opens a wide range of jobs, from clinical institutions, jobs in industry, international and government bodies, as well as the continuation of academic and research careers (e.g., universities, institutes).
The objective of the Nuclear engineering master study program is to train experts in the field of nuclear engineering.
The program offers a wide range of fundamental knowledge in the areas of mathematics, physics, engineering and computer science - all focused on nuclear technology.
The program is aimed at a broad range of students with a university degree in technical or natural sciences such as physics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, civil engineering, metallurgy, chemistry, mathematics.
The program upgrades the students' basic education at the bachelor level with knowledge from the areas of nuclear physics and technology. In addition, a wide range of elective courses enable the student to get an insight into current scientific issues in selected topics of nuclear engineering.
The aim of the Physics master study program is to educate researchers and specialists with the advanced knowledge of physics and the knowledge of physical laws of nature with the ability for critical thinking and a critical approach to solving a wide range of tasks and problems.
The different orientations offer a rough specialization, which is, because of a small number of obligatory courses, quite flexible and allows the student to combine several branches of physics.
The program also allows the students of non-physics programs, especially technical and natural science programs, to deepen their knowledge of physical principles and laws related to their specialization. The program is based on mastering theoretical foundations and their application in connection with practical work.
The fundamental objective of the Physics Education master study program is to prepare students for independent educational and research work as physics teachers at all levels of primary and secondary education including programs with a special emphasis on science courses and work with gifted students as well as programs that prepare for the national exam (matura) in physics.
An additional goal of the program is to prepare students for the jobs that require effective and accurate communication and presentation of science findings and technological innovations to general public.
