Description: 
Field of study: Applied Mathematics
 
The programme, offered by the Faculty of Pure and Applied Mathematics and run in a cooperation with the Hugo Steinhaus Center, is based on educational standards of the European Consortium for Mathematics in Industry (ECMI) that is confirmed by the status of ECMI Teaching Center Wrocław University of Science and Technology obtained in 2014. The curriculum is oriented towards real-life applications and industrial problems in educational style and contents. The goal of the studies is the real world applied mathematics education of specialists who are well prepared not only for work in the international financial institutions or enterprises, but also for any situation in which the creative thinking is needed. The graduates have no problems with finding good jobs in the finance and insurance or industrial sectors in Poland and abroad. The MSc diploma offers an opportunity to continue education at Ph.D. studies.
