While I may not be able to give a detailed account of a pure math degree, I can confidently say that an engineering degree involves a substantial number of advanced math classes. In fact, mathematics is a key tool in problem-solving within the engineering field. Naturally, you could explore the specific requirements of any degree, but generally, they include calculus, differential equations, physics, and chemistry, all of which involve a significant amount of math.

An engineering degree is incredibly versatile, offering a wide array of specializations such as chemical, mechanical, electrical, petroleum, aerospace, and more. My additional advice would be to delve into some online research to discover where math degrees are applicable. Alternatively, if you have a particular school in mind, reaching out to an advisor for insights on the career paths of their graduates could be beneficial. Remember, every step you take in exploring these options brings you closer to finding your ideal career path. Keep going!

Computer Science:

Some areas of CS, but not all. Improving algorithm efficiency always involves math. If you like combinatorics and probability, you'll be a good fit.

Example of a problem that the top minds have been working on for decades: Matrix multiplication. PhDs in Computer Science have been working for decades trying to get this one task down to a theoretical maximum efficiency. https://charchithowitzer.medium.com/matrix-multiplication-why-is-it-a-big-deal-cc8ef7490008#:~:text=One%20of%20the%20areas%20of,to%20the%20pixels'%20color%20values.

Medical imaging:

MRIs and CAT scans involve a lot of math, but you'd need to be part of an R&D team.

Math is a required subject in many jobs. It is necessary to work in IT field (in some types of programming.) It is required to be a math teacher or lecturer, engineer, and so on.
