I went to UCSB and partied my heart out. SO MUCH PARTYING. It was all day every day. I got a mathematical sciences major but a very low GPA 2.3 about. How can I get a job. What tips are there for someone in my position?
My school offers a degree in Mathematics and a degree in Mathematical Sciences so I'm assuming that the Mathematical Sciences degree involves less theory/abstract concepts and is more of an applied math degree.
What can I do with a joint major in math and computer science? What job opportunities are there? I find this to be an interesting joint major, but I don't really know what you can do after doing this.
Would I be alright being a programmer given I have a joint major in math and comp sci? Not a full-on major of computer science. The computer science major is impacted at this school, but I can easily transfer into the math/comp sci one.
Where do people work in this job? Are there physical demands for this job?
Recently I've noticed that when I zone out i begin doing different kinds of math problems like counting how many times a blinker blink in 30 seconds or finding numerical patterns around me. I'm starting Algebra 2 next year in the ninth grade so being far ahead I'd like to get a general idea as to what kind of jobs I can prepare for while I'm still in High school.
Mathematical sciences is a specialization in statistics probability and data gathering. I am currently doing actuarial science and economics but I am not sure if actuary is the right path for me so I am thinking of switching from actuarial science to mathematical sciences depending on if the job prospects are better.
What else job options are there??
And what are you called when you graduate that major?
I've got about half a year until I need to start making decisions about what course I would like to make, but it's been almost a year and a half pondering about what career I would like in the first place!
So basically, I would like a job where I can do the coding and create programs for the like of google or microsoft, well that's the dream anyway. I've been reading up A LOT on what the difference is between them and I think I have it down, but all it's done is made me more confused as to what to choose. I know that computer scientists tend to move into software engineering and that it tends not to go the other way, so im thinking of following that route and taking computer science. However, wouldn't it just be better to take software engineering (as I hate maths and I know that computer science deals with a lot of it) and move straight into programming. But again, I contradict myself and just think to endure the mathematical side of computer science and then move into software engineering when I go to find a career, as this would prepare me better all round and let me move into other computer related careers to get some experience and even just learn a bit more around the subject. And then again, I'm back to the start and start thinking that computer science could just be a waste of time dealing with all the maths and that I could just end up working with a development team and not need to do anything apart from code.
So basically, what would be better for me? Are these even the courses I should be considering? And if it's not too much to ask, what would be the best university for these courses? However taking into consideration that although a university may have a great IT department, employers tend to look for graduates from top universities (I've looked at many graduate jobs that have the same old "looking for a candidate that has graduated from a top university"), they tend not to care about the department but rather the name of the university and its reputation.
FYI, I am in college at the moment and although I'm still in my first year (studying IT), I've got distinctions across the board, 100?n all my work, so I'm well on the way to getting a great end result and top universities are a consideration.
I have to write a paper for my college algebra class on jobs that use college algebra and the concepts that the jobs use. I've researched and found jobs, just not the concepts. Someone please help me out!
The mathematical sciences major at my school requires the student to take Programming 1 and 2 just like the CS majors, but other than that there arent any more computer science classes. Ive been thinking about majoring in mathematical sciences because i'd either like a career in computers or i'd like to be a teacher, but I'm just wondering how exactly a math degree would lead to a computer job if it only has two computer classes.
How much maths is involved in computer science degrees and computing jobs in general?
Is it that studying psychology incolves more of a science background?
I am taking a degree and want to know what jobs i can get with all three degrees combined or separate on their own.
What is the difference if i got a degree in computer science, or a degree in computer programming. How are they different.
What kind of jobs would be open to me once I graduate and how hard would it be to land a well paying entry level job in this field? How should I prepare while in school? (I am currently a sophomore)
I am looking for a career in humanities and science where I am independent or do not have to work with others, particularly males. Please do not mention teaching or medicine. Thanks!
Hey I'm a 15 year old and am currently in grade 10. I like to have a game plan on something i would like to do after i left high school. I am making a 95?n my math class and really enjoy, and always have enjoyed math. I was wondering if anyone knew some good paying jobs in the field of Mathematics? Any opinion is appreciated.
I'm just wondering what kind of job I get with a neuroscience degree.
What I mean is that when I graduate i don't want to go into research and work in labs. It doesn't appeal to me because the pay in the UK for research scientists is rubbish, the working hours are quite long and the work is tedious.
My question is what kind of job can i get that is related to my degree but doesn't involve lab based work or research.
Also i I don't want to go into teaching.
I want to know that if I obtained a degree in computer science would it help me get into other fields such as Video Game Programming or Web Programming or any other field that involves computers?
Im thinking fo doing maths special.
I wanna know what are the job opportunities after doing math, other than teaching?
Someone who are in this industry plz help?
