Mostly applied math, depending on the job. I have used math such as solving linear and nonlinear ODEs and PDEs, Laplace, Z and Fourier transforms, calculus, optimization, linear algebra, solving nonlinear equations in jobs that I have worked in.

For mechanical engineering (the only type I can speak confidently about), most of the math is taken care of by computers in the industry. CFD and finite-element algorithms are generally used to model the PDEs that are inhenerent in fluid mechanics, strength of materials, heat transfer, vibrations, and aerodynamics... More

Civil's deal mostly with algebra and trig, sometimes an equation will require simple calculus.
