Program description

Bachelor's Degree in Applied Mathematics and Computing

The Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Mathematics and Computing seeks to train professionals who are capable of applying mathematics in those areas of science, engineering, economics, and other social sciences where computation plays a key role.

Students will be prepared in the design and use of algorithms and numerical methods for modelling and for solving real problems. This degree, in great demand by companies and research institutions, enables future professionals to undertake their professional activity in all the business sectors and in research and development where this mixed profile combining competencies in mathematics and computer science is required.

Students will acquire sound mathematical knowledge and a robust command of programming and software development, enabling them to focus on the implementation of mathematical computer methods and statistics. In addition, they will learn the theoretical fundamentals of computing and its practical applications; furthermore, students will acquire a solid understanding of the operation of computers which will endow them with the ability to make the most adequate design decisions.

The Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Mathematics and Computing will be taught for the first time at UC3M during academic year 2019-2020.
