There are several factors, which influence people’s perception and valuation of different branches of knowledge and particularly of mathematics. This paper reports a study, which investigated the attitudes towards mathematics of computer engineering students. Likert scale test was applied to analyze the attitudes towards mathematics widely used in mathematics education. The results of this research showed that students consider mathematics to be useful, but at the same time complicated and matter of great anxiety. The 50% of participants gave the positive opinion about the usage of mathematics, while only 22% of them had a negative opinion. The usefulness of mathematics was the highest rated factor with an average of 3.38.
