To train professionals capable of solving problems of a very diverse nature in the world of industry, business and administration using the language and tools provided by mathematics, which allows them access to highly qualified jobs and incorporation into multidisciplinary teams, especially those that require a high level of skill in posing and solving problems, capacity for analysis, synthesis and abstract thinking.General CompetencesAcquisition of high-level mathematical tools for various applications meeting the expectations of graduates in mathematics and other basic sciences.
Know the broad panorama of current mathematics, both in its lines of research, as well as in methodologies, resources and problems that it addresses in various fields.
Train for the analysis, approach and resolution of problems in new or unfamiliar environments, within broader contexts.
Prepare for decision making based on abstract considerations, to organize, plan and solve complex issues.SaidasResearch in Mathematics in Galicia experienced a major advance and momentum in recent years with repercussions not only on a theoretical but also technological level. Mathematical researchers actively collaborate in various fields both related to basic research and its applications, with which mathematics went from being a basic instrument in science and technology with a high theoretical component, to also being an indispensable tool in any process scientific and technological. An example of this fact is the participation of various members of the Program's teaching and research team in various thematic networks.
In general, mathematics studies, in their different specialties, offer very attractive job expectations, with a broad spectrum, beyond the commonly assigned area of Teaching and Research, the most prominent being Business Administration, Quality, Production and R&D.
