Computer science and mathematics
(academic year 2019/20)
Interdisciplinary Master's (second cycle) programmeCoordinator: doc. dr. Matija Pretnar
Please visit our Master's degree website for more information about the programme, department, and life in Ljubljana.
This programme is designed for Bachelors in programs such as Computer science and mathematics, Mathematics, and Computer and information science. The programme is offered jointly by the Faculty of Mathematics and Faculty of Computer and Information Science. The goal of the programme is to educate students to be able to develop new information technology and to conduct research in mathematics and theoretical computer science.
This is a 2-year programme (4 semesters) with 120 ECTS credits.
Graduates obtain the title magister inženir računalništva in matematike/magistrica inženirka računalništva in matematike, abbreviated to mag. inž. rač. mat.
Year 1: Functinoal programming, Algorithms, seven mathematics or computer science electives, general elective
Year 2: Six mathematics or computer science electives, general elective, Seminar, Master's thesis
The student must pass at least seven mathematics electives and at least five computer science electives.
Percentage of electives in the programme is 75% (90 credits), of those at least 65% (78 credits) from computer science and mathematics electives and up to 10% (12 credits) from general electives.
A student has to select at least 60 credits every year.
Admission requirements »
Admission to the study programme is open to either: a) Graduates of undergraduate study programmes in the areas of computer or information science, mathematics, financial mathematics, pedagogical mathematics, statistics and physics.
b) Graduates of undergraduate study programmes in other areas that have met all the requirements for the continuation of study. The requirements (between 10 and 60 credits) are specified by the department study committee.
If a decision is issued to limit enrolment, candidates are selected based on their:
- grade point average (GPA) achieved in undergraduate studies 50%,
- results of the selection exam 50 %.
List of topics for the selection exam Computer science and mathematics
There will be no selection exam for the academic year 2019-20.
Enrolment, re-enrolment and graduation requirements »
Enrolment in Year 1 is granted upon admission.
For enrolment in Year 2 it is necessary to earn 54 ECTS credits from courses and exams in Year 1.
For re-enrolment in the first study year, a student needs to earn at least half of all possible credits (30 ECTS credits). Re-enrolment is only possible once. A change of the study programme counts as re-enrolment.
To graduate, students need to complete all exams, and submit and defend a thesis.
Validation of competences, knowledge, and skills acquired prior to admission to the study program »
Students may apply for validation of competences acquired previously by means of various forms of education if their competences match those of one or more courses offered within this study programme.
In a formal written request submitted to the Department of Mathematics, the applicant must specify the course(s) whose competences he or she had already mastered, and attach official transcripts proving it. When considering the possible validation of competences corresponding to a particular course, the department study committee bases its decision on a comparison of the duration of the educational process and the scope of the acquired competences with the respective components of the course(s) to which the request pertains.
If the study committee decides to validate the previously acquired competences, the student is awarded all ECTS credits that correspond to the respective course(s).
Transferring from other study programmes
It is possible to transfer from other study programmes. The appropriate year of study as well as other transfer requirements are determined on the basis of the programme the student is transferring from. The exact conditions for finishing the programme are determined by the department study committee.
