PROGRAM OVERVIEW

A HANDS-ON APPROACH WITH REAL-WORLD APPLICATIONS

The Bachelor in Applied Mathematics at IE University has been expertly designed to bring mathematical theory to life following practical and highly engaging methodologies. As so much of the program is built around personal choice, students are able to embark on a customized learning journey that trains them to apply specific mathematical knowledge where it’s necessary. Achieving this requires a balance between theoretical equations and mathematical concepts and the actionable skills necessary to solve problems, using real simulations. Immersed in our dynamic educational environment, you will be encouraged to question everything as you transform into an industry-shaping professional.

CHOOSE YOUR OWN SPECIALIZATION

The first two years will center on mathematical foundations, before being introduced to the range of access modules for later personalization. In the third year, you will begin to specialize in different areas: Health and Biology to explore medical imaging and drug development and use in medical industries; Economics, where you investigate mathematical modeling in the foundations of economics; or Banking and Financial sector, which will deal primarily with financial markets modeling. Other options include the Energy and Sustainability sector, based around renewable and alternative sources of energy, and the Operations and Automation sector, which will focus on the variables of process optimization and logistics. Lastly, you can also choose to continue the study of pure mathematics for your final year.

VENTURE INTO THE MODELING WORLD

Mathematical modeling empowers individuals to translate practical problems into mathematical formulations. In doing so, they are better equipped to draw insights through theoretical and numerical analysis which can then be turned into actionable solutions. A central pillar of this program revolves around developing this all-important skill. Not only does mathematical modeling have wide-reaching and indispensable applications, but it also provides unrivaled precision and a clear direction when it comes to problem-solving. By gaining such a deep understanding of the world of modeling, you will have the invaluable ability to be able to design or control superior systems in fields that range from anthropology and architecture to finance, linguistics and pharmacology, to name a few.

DRIVE MATHEMATICS IN THE DIGITAL ERA

Modern technology is driving transformation in everything from civil engineering to healthcare to machine learning, and it’s all rooted in a mathematical foundation. We can even go so far as to say that without mathematics all science and technology would be meaningless, as scientific theories—such as quantum mechanics—require mathematical training in order to exist. By studying applied mathematics, you gain the ability to peer into the foundations of everything around us, allowing you to see the world in a highly visual and digital way. With this unique, foundational perspective of the motor of the modern world, you can help drive change in areas such as big data analysis, statistical analysis and computer calculations, among others.
