To be direct, no. No engineers that I have ever interacted with have used math every single day. Not to say that are not some that do, but not to my knowledge. However, how does that impact you on your potential job? You'll most likely need to use math at some point. Then again, you might easily simply ask another team member to help you out with it. But here's the thing. I personally have found math to be a gateway to understanding a whole host of approaches to problem-solving in my work. Actually, it's usually been a surprise to others and different from their own approach to the same problems. So keep it in your "back pocket" as another tool that will come in handy. I'm sure there are many jobs out there that will require daily use of math, but I have not found any. Now, to get an engineering degree.... that's another story. Because the principles of math are most definitely in every aspect of engineering.
