The three-year degree in Mathematics provides a sound basic knowledge in all areas of Mathematics, a strong acquaintance with the scientific method, along with computer and language skills. The programme trains students to develop a high capability for synthesis and abstraction. The demand for such skills is very high in both public and private research organizations, in industry, banking, finance and insurance, and the high-technology service sector in general. This backbone is also fundamental for those wishing to specialize in applied mathematics or start a career in scientific research, and for those willing to study teaching and learning methodologies and to work in the field of mathematical education.

Course content

The programme provides a thorough study of some of the main areas of Mathematics: Algebra, Geometry, Mathematical Analysis, Mathematical Physics, Probability Theory, Numerical Analysis. Courses in Physics and Computer Science are also provided, along with Computational and Computer lab activities. A wide range of additional courses are offered to give students the opportunity to choose different training paths. Through laboratory practice and the final thesis, students have the opportunity to further develop and refine their abilities and interests.

Career options

The first degree in Mathematics may continue with: i) a Master's Degree in Mathematics based on a two-year program, focused on applied mathematics or scientific research or mathematical education; ii) a short vocational Master (one year duration), mainly oriented to mathematical applications. As far as employment opportunities are concerned, approximately half of the Mathematics graduates work as Mathematics teachers or as experts in the dissemination of science. The remaining half are mainly involved in highly qualified technical or professional support activities in industry, finance, services and public administration.

After the degree

The Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics allows graduates to access to the second level Master's Degree in Mathematics without credit obligations.
