CAREERS in MATH
"There is no branch of mathematics, however abstract, which may
not some day be applied to phenomena of the real world."
-- Nikolai Lobachevsky
From N. Rose, Mathematical Maxims and Minims, Raleigh NC, Rome Press Inc., 1988.
A surprising variety of career opportunities are open
to people with mathematical talent and training --
mathematics and computational science are utilized in almost every
discipline of science, engineering, industry, and technology. New
application areas are discovered constantly and older techniques are
applied in new ways and in emerging fields. Industry relies on
applied mathematics and computational science for the design and
optimization of products such as aircraft, automobiles, textiles,
computers, communication systems, and prescription drugs;
processes such as supply chains, logistics, and scheduling; and a
wide range of other products and services.
