What can I do with a degree in Mathematics?
Mathematics, like other sciences, is an ever developing body of knowledge. Mathematical research allows you to explore new frontiers in mathematics.
When a problem is beyond the scope of what an engineer in a given department works on, the person with an applied mathematics degree can step in and, with a group of specialists, work toward a solution.
A mathematical background is necessary for an engineer in any field.
Statisticians work in research design, data collection and data analysis to identify patterns in data, to understand data, and to make decisions based on the data. A statistician’s skills are applicable in many different fields: business and industry, biological, physical, psychological, and social sciences. A “hot” field right now is biostatistics.
An actuary works in the insurance industry. The profession is closely regulated, and advancement through the actuarial ranks is achieved by passing a series of tests administered by the Society of Actuaries. The first five tests measure knowledge of calculus, linear algebra, statistics, numerical analysis, and operations research.
