Program Description

Career Opportunities

Students of Mathematics obtain a basic knowledge of mathematics and its applications. The main topics considered during the studies are analysis, algebra, analytic geometry, logic (including sentential and quantifier calculus), ordinary differential equations, probability theory, statistics, complex numbers, and analytic functions. The students gain an ability for logical argumentation, and to carry out proofs of mathematical theorems, in particular to distinguish between assumptions and conclusions, to perform complicated calculations and formulate problems in mathematical language for their easier solving, to extract qualitative information from numerical data, use IT tools during the analysis of application problems, and to further develop independent mathematical knowledge.

Informatics graduates:

  • can progress to M.A. programs (e.g. in Informatics, Mathematics);
  • get a degree which equips them with a variety of transferable skills that are highly attractive to employers.

Work placements:

  • students undertake compulsory practice to enhance their professional experience. Work placements are co-organized with the private sector partners cooperating with the Lublin City Office in the field of IT solutions;
  • KUL’s Careers Centre provides a range of help and advice to help you plan your career and make well-informed decisions along the way, even after you graduate.
