Your Boundless Future

Math is more than just using calculators and memorizing formulas, just like software engineering is more than soldering circuits and writing code. With a mathematics degree, you’ll be able to help decipher research and industrial discoveries. It’s a background valued in space exploration, climate study, medicine, national security, and finance.

Meanwhile, software engineers enjoy one of the best starting salaries in the engineering field (according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers). A software engineering background is valued in video games, robotics, artificial intelligence, data mining, and web development.
