Specific Admission Requirements
Specific admission requirements are determined by the Dean of the faculty. For more information please click here.
Specific Arrangements for the Recognition of Prior Learning
Informal learning - max. 60% of credits gained in prior lifelong learning can be recognized, as determined by the Dean of the Faculty.
Qualification Requirements and Regulations
Qualification Requirements:
Finished secondary education with secondary school-leaving exam.
The Czech educational system is regulated by the Higher Education Act (Act 111/1998). Studies at VSB-TUO are regulated by the Statute of VSB – Technical University of Ostrava.
Profile of the Programme
The aim of the study is to educate graduates with practical skills and basic theoretical background in applied mathematics and informatics, able to communicate with experts and work in a team, having basic skills in the required practice, such as communication, presentation, teamwork and communication in English. Graduates apply not only in IT, but due to certain universality of mathematics (and computer science) and learned ability to quickly adapt can graduates apply to any field or firm. For most graduates, however, it is assumed to continue the Master's study in Computational and Applied Mathematics or in any related program.
Key Learning Outcomes
Key Lerning Outcomes are Expressed in following Structure: Knowledge, Skills, General competencies
The graduate has a general knowledge of applied mathematics and informatics. He specializes in the use of knowledge of applied mathematics in various fields. The offer of special subjects, which are not part of state final examinations, enables students to acquire deeper knowledge in selected areas. Due to the solid knowledge of applied mathematics and informatics, the graduate has all the prerequisites for flexible adaptation according to the requirements of the practice.
Graduates of the study program are able to solve practical problems in the field of computational and applied mathematics using basic research procedures to the extent necessary to solve practical problems. They are able to find, sort and interpret information relevant to solving a defined practical problem.
General competencies:
Graduates are able to decide independently and responsibly in only a few known contexts based on a framework assignment, to coordinate team activities and to be responsible for team results. They have communication skills that enable them to capture the essence of the problem, summarize their opinions and describe the nature of professional problems, present their opinions to experts and the general public in at least one foreign language, usually in English.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples
Graduates can find their placement in practically all areas of IT and applied mathematics, regardless of their focus. Due to certain universality of mathematics (and a learned approach to problem solving) and informatics, disciplines that are an integral part of all disciplines, the graduate has a very wide and varied range of possibilities - from work in IT companies, through analysts and consultants, to work in development teams or in science and research. However, we expect that the majority of graduates will continue in the follow-up study program "Computational and Applied Mathematics".
Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading
Examination regulations, assesment and grading are described in the Study and Examination Rules.
Course block: Compulsory - all courses are compulsory.
Course block: Choice-compulsory - student has to choose at least one course from the list of courses.
Course block: Optional - student can choose any course from the list of courses.
IMPORTANT: Student has to select so many courses to reach 30 ECTS credits per semester. Rules in detail and convenient selection of courses can be consulted with the programmme director.
Bellow stated courses are assigned for the degree studies only. Students coming to VSB-TUO for an exchange stay must select courses from the List of courses for exchange students.
