Earliest start date
Learn to solve engineering problems using computer technology
The follow-up master's degree programme Applied and Interdisciplinary Mathematics is an international Double Degree programme which aims to equip graduates with knowledge of advanced mathematical disciplines with a focus on their applications in various fields, but especially in fields of a technical nature. Emphasis is placed on the use of modern computer technology in solving problems using effective methods of applied mathematics, so the programme includes the necessary subjects in the field of informatics.
Thanks to the international dimension of the study, the graduates will acquire knowledge of the English language at such a level that they will be able to apply themselves without problems even in companies where English is commonly spoken.
Students of the master's programme will significantly deepen and expand the knowledge they have acquired by completing a bachelor's degree programme in mathematics and technology. They will also develop their ability to be creative and solve complex problems of a mathematical nature. If they do not want to start their internship after graduation but prefer to continue their studies, they can enter, for example, the doctoral study programme Applied Mathematics, which has a long tradition at the Institute of Mathematics, FME.
Of course, they can also continue their doctoral studies at another BUT department or another university in the Czech Republic or abroad.
