BACHELOR IN APPLIED MATHEMATICS IN A NUTSHELL

IE Bachelor in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence

YEAR 1

During your first year, you will learn the foundations of the subjects that make up the Bachelor in Applied Mathematics. These will provide you with a general, multidisciplinary understanding of mathematics. By the end of the year, you will have completed the essential groundwork, which you will later build upon as you continue your professional journey in applied mathematics.

IE Bachelor in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence

YEAR 2

In your second year, you will deepen your knowledge in the subjects explored in your first year. Additionally, you will gain an expert understanding of algebra and geometry, applied mathematics and probability and statistics.

IE Bachelor in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence

YEAR 3

In the third year, you will have all the in-depth practical and theoretical knowledge necessary to become an expert in applied mathematics. Approaching the field from a number of perspectives, you will study topics such as methods and techniques of modeling and simulation and intelligent systems. The majority of your courses will focus on modeling techniques, heuristics and optimization, applied stochastic modeling, differential geometry and algebraic structures, among others. This is also when you will have the opportunity to specialize through an introduction to two of the five available electives: Health and Biology, Economics, Banking and Finance, Energy and Sustainability and Operations and Automation.

IE Bachelor in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence

YEAR 4

As students enter their fourth and final year, they will further specialize by choosing one of the five electives offered in applied mathematics. If you don’t wish to specialize in one specific area, you have the option to choose subjects from each and graduate with a degree in pure mathematics. A large part of your final year will be dedicated to a capstone project, and you may also choose to expand your international horizons by participating in our exchange project. Students who choose to take part will have the opportunity to study at one of our prestigious partner institutions across 50 countries worldwide.
