Welcome from the dean

We open the door of our faculty with great satisfaction, whether you’re studying or thinking about coming here. The Historic Building of the University is about 150 years old and many generations of students keep a deep memory for the teachers they met and for the training received there. Today, we are pleased to have a well-trained team of university teaching professionals, motivated and active in research, as well as renovated work spaces and upgraded equipment.

Our faculty offers the degree of Mathematics, the Degree in Computer Engineering and the double degrees of Mathematics and Computer Engineering, Mathematics and Physics, and Mathematics and Business Administration and Management. The paths for continuing education continue with the Masters in Advanced Mathematics, the Master’s in Data Science Foundations and the Masters in Interuniversity of Artificial Intelligence and Pure and Applied Logic, as well as with Postgraduates in Introduction to Science of Data and Resources and Experimentation Activities in Mathematics and Secondary Education. The employment rates of our graduates in 2017 exceed 96% in Computer Science and 92% in Mathematics.

At the same time, the Faculty staff is part of research groups that offer excellent opportunities for doctorate and international mobility scholarships. These groups organize conferences and courses through the Institute of Mathematics (IMUB) and participate in the training initiatives of the Barcelona Graduate School of Mathematics (BGSMath). They also address the future students in open days, the Matefest-Infofest, workshop talks and conferences of dissemination where you can see the strength of the research and its impact on today’s society.
