Degree in Mathematics (2009)

240 credits - Higher Polytechnic School
  This study programme will not be continued ; new students will not be admitted. You can refer to the corresponding current study programme. .

The Degree in Mathematics aims to produce graduates for society, given the current difficulty in finding mathematicians to cover job opportunities in this field.

The Mathematics programme at the UIB provides comprehensive training in mathematics to be able to work in any of the fields where graduates may be required. This means that mathematics graduates from the UIB are trained to work in maths teaching and research, as well as in other applied fields.

The Degree in Mathematics programme at the UIB is also known for its training in applied aspects linked to specific problems from everyday life. In this vein, for example, the course offers modelling and computing subjects, especially linked to mathematical aspects. These subjects round out students' learning and enable them to cover a much wider spectrum in their professional career development.

Ensuring that our maths graduates are able to access international postings means a key aspect to the programme at the UIB is the ability to understand, write and speak English. Special emphasis is placed on learning English in the scientific field. This is why the course includes a core English for Science subject, as well as the possibility of writing Final Degree Projects in English. In addition, students also have the possibility of spending time studying on international programmes.
