Algebra and Discrete Mathematics

General information

The objective of this Master's degree programme is to educate experts in mathematics with the highly developed abstract thinking.

It is designed especially for students who do not like to accept

knowledge without a deep understanding of its background and context.

The programme focuses on modern branches of algebra and discrete

mathematics including applications in theoretical computer science.

During the instruction a precise formulation of ideas is crucial.

The studies are designed so that the students, in addition to the broader base of the branch, acquire also a thorough knowledge in a particular discipline of their own choice.

In the course of their studies, it is typical for students to be in a close contact with a scientific team specializing in the given branch.

The graduates will have a clear idea of whether they should focus on research in the future, or apply the obtained knowledge in practice.

A successful graduate is able to

  • explain fundamental results in algebra and discrete mathematics
  • identify general algebraic concepts in other mathematical disciplines
  • use formal mathematical language to represent ideas
  • write a formal mathematical text
  • compose correct mathematical proofs

Graduate employment

The graduates have mastered advanced methods of algebra and discreet mathematics. They can find employment in basic research and as teachers at universities. They can also specialize in informatics and be ready for practice - for example creating mathematical models, using combinatorial algorithms, and designing software.
