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
