What Can You Do With a Major in Computational Mathematics?

Computational mathematics major careers and jobs

Marquette's major in computational math blends computer science and applied mathematics, a powerful combination that would otherwise require a double major to achieve. You'll graduate with a strong foundation in math coupled with the computing skills required by many of today's applications. So what can you do with a major in computational math after graduation? Many graduates enter the work force immediately in medical research, international banking or software development and logistics, while others choose to go to graduate school in mathematics, computer science or a related field. Some graduates even decide to start their own consulting firms.

Jobs for computational mathematics majors

Job prospects vary by field, but you'll be prepared for a strong job market. Jobs for mathematicians are expected to increase by 22 percent through 2018, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Marquette's computational math majors have gone on to work for:

  • Accenture
  • Astronautics Corporation of America
  • Rockwell Automation
  • Medical College of Wisconsin
  • Motorola Inc.
