ABSTRACT
This article studies the incorporation of differential and integral calculus into the education of Spanish artillery officers. It shows that Calculus was taught at the Royal Military College of Gentleman-Cadets of Artillery of Segovia since 1775. The subjects explained in these courses of differential and integral calculus when Vimercati was the Head Professor are described. So are the courses by Giannini. Finally, the contents of the third volume of Giannini's Curso Matemático, written to be used as textbook at the College of Artillery is summarized, and so are the notes taken during the classes of Calculus in 1781 by cadet Tomás Eslava.
