Aside from the 8 scientific departments, the Faculty has the Centre for Applications of Mathematics and Informatics promoting interdisciplinary cooperation aimed at solving practical problems, based on advanced mathematical methods and with the use of IT technology.
The Faculty’s students can pursue their interests in the student academic circles. Under the ERASMUS+ programme they may also complete part of their studies in foreign universities in Greece, Spain, Germany, Portugal, Turkey and Hungary. The Faculty also hosts lectures in English by visiting professors from foreign partner universities.
The Faculty cooperates with a number of firms operating in the economic environment and the IT industry with regard to student apprenticeships and internships, free training courses for students, completing diploma papers and research work.
The Faculty is located in a modern building which ensures good working and studying conditions. The entire building is accessible to people with motor disability and the air-conditioned lecture theatres are equipped with induction loops enabling people with hearing loss to participate in the lectures.
