Does Software Engineering require a lot of math?
I'm a part of the ITA academy in my school and I'm still deciding on what I want my career to be, I'm curious if Software Engineering requires a lot of math, I'm oookaay at math but not the best so I just wanted to know if there is a lot of math involved. Also I want to know if being a Software Engineer is stressful.

At college, you want an "Information Technology/Systems" or "MIS" degree (Business College),
NOT "Computer Engineering" (math-heavy, hardware-centric).
Of course, a Business Management minor is ALWAYS a plus.
Yea agree with Adam. The actual amount of math required in day-to-day Software Engineering is extremely minimal, if any. (Except for a few esoteric positions). However you *need* to be able to think extremely logically. You can learn how to do this, but it is a weird mindset to get in to.
Whether or not it's stressful depends a lot on your company, role, teammates, boss, etc. There are a lot of really stressful Software Engineering jobs. There are a lot of more laid back Software Engineering jobs (assuming, as mentioned earlier, you've learned how to think very logically).
Well, I'm afraid this answer has gone beyond what was asked but I hope it helpful for Niya and the community.
