Course description:

Recognize the acquired mathematical and numerical skills of analytical geometry and linear algebra in the field of study.

Use of acquired mathematical and numerical skills of analytical geometry and linear algebra to solve problems in the field of study.

Learning outcomes at the level of the programme to which the course contributes
