Normal computer operations are mostly covered by Advanced Statistics mixed with some Pure Maths such as Algebraic Logic.
Then there is also other advanced stuff like Formal Methods, or "Predicate Calculus", used to make interpretations of a certain system. The idea is that you make a layout of a certain system using a symbolic language such as Zed. It all depends on what path in Computing you wish to travel. Normal IT will never get this complicated. However if you wish to do anything like Software Engineering, skills with logic, (which are only acquired indirectly through Maths) are a necessity.

If you want to become ANY engineer, MATH is a subject that you cannot omit from the college syllabus, even if the real job didn't require an advanced knowledge of math.
so even if you don't like math, you just have to deal with it during your studies in college. but to be realistic here, of course you're going to need some math especially if you're in the R&D, Quality Control etc. for the specific subject, the name might be different in your own country, but i guess calculus, probability & statistics and pure math are pretty important subjects as a collage student doing engineering.

For the actual work? Not much at all.
To get the degree? Quite a lot. In the end, you just need to know and understand the basic concepts. You can forget most of the actual formulae, etc. But you will need to cover them and make it through the classes in order to get the credit you need for graduation. Specifically *what* will change based on exactly what it is you`re aiming for. The new Japan Forum Community

I am a computer engineer and we don't need too much of mathematics like in school. I hope you will keep up with your motivation.
