Learning outcomes: Doctor - Mathematics
The following learning outcomes are compatible with the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) for lifelong learning and continuing education. The EQF directives facilitate acceptance of this course credits by many higher education institution. These learning outcomes are achieved after completion of this course with a passing grade. Better grades will demonstrate higher analysis, evaluation and critical thinking skills. More info...
EQF LEVEL 6. Advanced knowledge and critical understanding.
Outcome resulting from course content assessment and its applicability to problem solving.
The student's ability to combine the different parts of the text and to form a new coherent and harmonic final report will determine the critical understanding of the subject and an advanced knowledge of Mathematics. The student written report style, content, and structure play an important role in the assessment and applicability of the knowledge about Mathematics to different Life & Earth Sciences decision making scenarios and problem-solving. More info...
EQF LEVEL 7. Advanced knowledge and critical thinking.
Outcome resulting from written critical thinking and its applicability to problem solving.
The student will contrast and evaluate the learned material with his/her own knowledge and experience to express an opinion about Mathematics, to consider the practical application of the key concepts, and to argue the conclusions along the written report. Personal judgments and opinion should be based on sound criteria and must be clearly discussed. More info...
