Internationalization is an essential element of modern science and economy.
Julius Maximilian University Würzburg and Ivan Franko National University of Lviv offer to highly qualified master students in
- Applied Mathematics and Informatics,
- Computer Science and Electronics, and
- Mechanics and Mathematics
a new and fascinating opportunity: an international Joint Certificate Program (JCP) in Advanced Computational Mathematics focusing on Mathematical Fundamenta of Computer Sciences/Informatics. The language of instruction of the program is English. The JCP is completed by a Certificate issued jointly by both universities.
Both universities selected some of their top scientists for this program. During one semester, they combine their expertise to provide the students with skills serving as basis for a further career in international or national academia or companies.
Courses completed successfully within the Joint Certificate Program can be included simultaneously in regular master courses at Ivan Franko National University as electives.
Upon successful completion of the JCP, Julius Maximilian University Würzburg will support excellent students in obtaining
- a PhD scholarship at the University of Würzburg or
- an internship in companies from the Würzburg area that support the program (such as Brose or Wittenstein).
Students who want to go to Würzburg for a PhD scholarship or an internship need to speak some German. For students who don’t speak German or who want to improve their German, German language courses and language tests are offered in the framework of this program.
The number of admitted students is limited to 30.
In the winter semester 2014/2015, the program includes five modules (corresponding to 5 ECTS Credit points each):
- Computational Geometry I, a long slow semestral course taught by Prof. Taras Banakh (Lviv University) and preparing the students for:
- Computational Geometry II, an intensive block course taught by Prof. Alexander Wolff (University of Würzburg) in the week Nov. 3–7;
- Graph Theory I, a long slow semestral course taught by Dr. Yuriy Ishchuk (Lviv University) and preparing the students for:
- Graph Theory II, an intensive block course taught by Dr. Joachim Spoerhase (University of Würzburg) in the week Nov. 17–24;
- German language, a course delivered by teachers of the Chair of Foreign Languages of Lviv University.
All the courses are taught at Lviv University. Each course ends with an exam.
Interested students must register electronically for the program both at Lviv University and the University of Würzburg. Application must be submitted to the contact person at one of the three faculties Mechanics and Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Informatics, or Electronics.
The deadline for the registration is September 15, 2014.
