Top 5 careers for people who love mathematics!

As we become more technologically dependent, technical reasoning is needed for survival. A degree in math is also a strong background for many computer science and computer engineering jobs. Here’s a list of math orientated careers.

The importance of Mathematics as a
tool for science and technology is continually increasing. While science and technology have become so pervasive, mathematics education has continued to dominate the school curriculum and remains a key subject area requirement in higher education and employment sector.

Mathematics prepares graduates for careers as actuaries, computer scientists, mathematicians, statisticians, teachers and more. Advanced skills in mathematics are a must in many science-related careers. A degree in math is also a strong background for many computer science and computer engineering jobs. 

The International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) is the largest congress in the mathematics community. It is held once every four years under the auspices of the International Mathematical Union (IMU). The Fields Medals, the Nevanlinna Prize, and the Gauss Prize are awarded during the congress’ opening ceremony. Each congress is memorialized by printed Proceedings recording academic papers based on invited talks intended to reflect the current state of the science and this year ICM is being held at Hyderabad. Through ICM they plan to promote pure sciences and bring out the importance of mathematics in our technologically driven society.

Mathematics is the study of form, structure, operations and relationships. Mathematics is also applied to all scientific study, engineering, physics, astronomy and even to the field of commerce, logistics, production, planning and development. It serves as a basic tool of thought not only in the physical sciences, the biological and medical sciences, but is also deep rooted in the social sciences as well. For those with a substantial background in mathematics, an unlimited number of career opportunities are available. The following list describes work associated with some mathematics-related professions

Software Engineer

Software engineers design and develop software. They apply the theories and principles of computer science and mathematical analysis to create, test, and evaluate the software applications and systems that make computers work.

Software engineers design and develop many types of software, including computer games, business applications, operating systems, network control systems, and middle ware. They must be experts in the theory of computing systems, the structure of software, and the nature and limitations of hardware to ensure that the underlying systems will work properly. Computer software engineers are among the occupations projected to grow the fastest and add the most new jobs over the 2008-18 decade, resulting in excellent job prospects.  

Computer Systems Analyst
Nearly all organizations rely on computer and information technology (IT) to conduct business and operate efficiently. Computer systems analysts use IT tools to help enterprises of all sizes achieve their goals. Most systems analysts work with specific types of computer systems—for example, business, accounting, and financial systems or scientific and engineering systems—that vary with the kind of organization.  

Analysts use techniques such as structured analysis, data modeling, information engineering, mathematical model building, sampling, and a variety of accounting principles to ensure their plans are efficient and complete. They also may prepare cost-benefit and return-on-investment analysis to help management decide whether implementing the proposed technology would be financially feasible. The employment in this sector is expected to increase much faster than average. There are good job prospects as organizations continue to adopt increasingly sophisticated technologies.

Operations Research Analysts
Operations research analysts formulate and apply mathematical modeling methods to develop and interpret information that assists management with policy formulation and other managerial functions. Using analytical techniques, operations research analysts help managers to make better decisions and solve problems.  

Analysts are often involved in top-level strategizing, planning, and forecasting. They help to allocate resources, measure performance, schedule, design production facilities and systems, manage the supply chain, set prices, coordinate transportation and distribution, or analyze large databases. People taking up this post must have strong quantitative and computer skills; advanced knowledge in mathematics. There is a huge demand for operations research analysts and this Industry is expected to grow by 3 % by the end of this year.

Banking Jobs in are the emerging area for jobs in India. Consumer banking industry, with immense growth prospects, not only serve the community with conventional banking service but fuel the growth of economy by loan and financing for various development work and thereby generate thousands of jobs and career opportunities in the banking finance sector.
