Cooperation with economy

After initiating the Graduate university study programme in mathematics, branch Mathematics and Computer Science and branch Financial Mathematics and Statistics, the Department of Mathematics has intensified its contacts with the economy for the purpose of getting the curriculum of the Department of Mathematics closer to current needs and requirements of the real sector as well as for the purpose of familiarising the students of the Department of Mathematics with companies operating in the environment.

Business and professional cooperation of the Department of Mathematics and the real sector includes e.g. the following:

A measurable result achieved through cooperation with the real sector is that there are almost no unemployed MMath degree holders who have completed their graduate university study programmes at the Department of Mathematics, Josip Juraj Strossmayer University of Osijek, and potential employers have contacted us directly to ask for professional young people of high quality.

Agreements on cooperation

Department of Mathematics has entered into cooperation agreements with the following companies in the IT sector: IN2, Span, Adacta, Siemens Convergence Creators, as well as an agreement with Osijek Software City, an association that gathers many Osijek-based IT companies and monitors our best students according to the following model:

A cooperation agreement has also been signed with AlphaScore, a company whose activity is based on credit risk assessment and appropriate software implementation, as well as with the Croatian Food Agency.

In addition to cooperation agreements, there is informal cooperation between the Department of Mathematics and many real sector companies, in the form of participation of teachers and assistants of the Department in solving various professional issues which occur naturally in the operation of such companies. Department of Mathematics has developed continuing cooperation with the Clinical Hospital Centre Osijek, and cooperation with the following companies: Siemens Convergence Creators, Farmeron, Secure Plus te Hrvatska elektroprivreda i Podravska bank.
