A MS or PhD degree in Applied Mathematics will open the doors to many different careers in academia, industry, business or finance, and government. See this webpage (produced by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) for more information.
This page provides links to the materials presented in several professional development workshops held throughout the academic year.
Summer (and academic-year) internships are one of the most important components of undergraduate (and graduate) training. Future employers, and/or future PhD program admissions committee, always pay particular attention to candidates with research experience gained through these programs.
This presentation (Fall quarter workshop) discusses the importance of internships and provides a variety of ways to find available ones.
What kinds of careers are available after a MS in Scientific Computing and Applied Mathematics?
Alumni from our program present a wide range of possibilities, and discuss how they found their jobs, and what are the most valuable skills they acquired in the MS program that they use every day -- the answers may surprise you!
This document is the program for the 2020 presentations, including a description of our speakers.
