In the Master's thesis the student presents the chosen topic in detail.
The final exam consists of three questions: one about mathematical analysis, one about algebra, and one about a chosen mathematical discipline (geometry, topology, probability theory, numerical methods, discrete and computational mathematics). The questions are taken from a given list of questions and cover only basic notions of mathematics.
