The general aim of this lecture course is threefold:

1) to interconnect different mathematical fields
2) to connect mathematics and real life problems
3) to learn to be critical and to ask relevant questions.

There are no special prerequisites.

During the lecture course there will be one lecture of a person from industry and one excursion (at the end of the lecture course) if possible.

To earn the credits you have to attend the lecture, finish the work on one project during the term in a group of 2-3 persons and pass the exam. The topic of the project is up to the choice of each group.


The exam is an oral exam. The finished project is a prerequisite for the oral exam.
