Bachelor's Degree in Physics + Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics

Presentation

The top quality preparation offered in this joint Bachelor's Degree in Physics and Mathematics provides future professionals with a combination of in-depth knowledge of physics and a rigorous training in abstract thought, an intrinsic part of mathematics.

The combination of the objectives of these two degrees permits students to acquire a solid scientific base on both the theoretical and practical concepts of physics and mathematics. The degree is structured to offer students the possibility of following a joint track which specialised in the most important aspects of the two disciplines.

Students acquire an interdisciplinary scientific training and the capacity of analysis and abstraction that allows them to take on challenges and further develop their career efficiently in the academic, scientific and technological fields, or continue with their training in more specialised fields.

Student Profile

The ideal student for this course should have the following qualities:

  • Ability for abstraction and logical reasoning.
  • Interest in mathematics and physics.
  • Curiosity for science in general.
  • Ability to understand concepts pertaining to physics and mathematics.
  • A sense of curiosity, ability to observe and analyse phenomena.
  • Ability to consider problem-solving a challenge and approach it with tenacity and work skills.

Students must have a secondary school education focused on Mathematics and Physics and have taken the university entrance exams (PAU) in these subjects.

Career options

An important way to further your studies is to focus on university teaching and research.

In addition, graduates with a degree in primary sciences are highly valued in the fields of new technologies for their capacity of analysis, abstraction and rigorousness which allows them to adapt easily to realities that are constantly changing. Physical and mathematical models and tools are fundamental today in several sectors needing experts to develop and implement them such as in:

  • Companies with interdisciplinary research and development teams.
  • Financial and insurance institutions (assessment of derivatives, risk coverage, etc.).
  • Scientific/technical and IT consultancy services (optimisation of processes, communication networks, numerical methods, coding, cryptography, etc.).
  • Businesses and institutes working with statistics (quality control, exploratory analysis of data, etc.).
  • Computing and telecommunications.
  • Medicine (radioactive facilities, non-invasive exploration instruments).
  • Industries (optics, new materials).
  • Non-university teaching.
  • Public administration (radiation protection, the environment, computing).

Evaluation

ECTS methodology consists of continued assessment of all academic work done by students.

Timetables

Morning lectures. Practical sessions in the laboratory take place some afternoons. In your 5th year you may have both morning and afternoon sessions, depending on the specialisation you choose.
