Mathematicians use high-level mathematics and technology to develop new mathematical principles, understand relationships between existing principles, and solve real-world problems. They also Create models to resolve practical problems in fields such as business, government, engineering, and the sciences. They develop computational methods and computer codesCompare inferences derived from models with observations or experiments

Job Prospect


Work Environment

Mathematicians work in the government and in private science and engineering research companies. They often work with engineers, scientists, and other professionals and therefore must often work around others' schedules.Mathematicians who work in post-secondary education usually have a mix of teaching and research responsibilities. Many academic mathematicians do research by themselves or in collaboration with other mathematicians. Collaborators work together at the same institution or from different locations, communicating electronically. Mathematicians in academia often have help from graduate students.
