Are you passionate about mathematics and physics? Do you like to apply them to solving real problems? With the Bachelor's Degree in Engineering Mathematics and Physics you will acquire a solid and broad knowledge base and learn to apply them to solving real problems in the field of engineering. Furthermore, mathematics and physics are the language that provides the foundation for all branches of engineering and, to a large extent, the other experimental sciences.
The future processes and systems of science and technology will be characterised by an ever increasing merging and synergy between different branches of knowledge. On this course, we will provide you with the tools to become a professional with the capacity to devise, design and develop your own ideas in a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary context.
Almost half of our classes are taught in English. Consequently, once you graduate, you will have the skills to continue your studies abroad and to work in international settings.

Prospective students should have a passion and aptitude for applied mathematics and physics, a profound interest in science, a capacity for creativity and a high level of self-expectation.
- The URV is the only university in Spain where you can study this bachelor's degree. It is the only bachelor's degree that in one course combines foundational knowledge of both mathematics and physics whilst emphasising the knowledge areas that both disciplines feed into (computational mathematics, applied mathematics, probability theory, computational physics), its most cutting-edge aspects and its applications to problems in the real world.
- The URV has a significant number of specialised Physics and Mathematics teaching and research staff who are members of international networks producing internationally recognised science. This has been amply demonstrated in recent years by the important publications made by the University's research staff in significant areas such as molecular quantum physics, biophysics, polymer physics, fluid mechanics, photonics, physical electronics, complex systems physics, algorithmic and computational mathematics, network and graph theory, dynamic systems, cryptography and code theory, enumerative combinatorics and statistical learning. A good number of these publications have appeared in the best interdisciplinary journals in the world (e.g. Nature and Science) and in the best journals in these disciplines.
- Almost half of our classes are taught in English. Consequently, once you graduate, you will have the skills to continue your studies abroad and to work in international settings.
