[bold]Math Lovers - How to choose Math major vs Engineering?[/bold]
Ok, there are no right or wrong answers here. I'm just trying to solicit some hints and insights.
One of our kids is a gifted mathematician who briefly considered switching from Engineering (undecided) to Math major. My husband and I and many of our friends are engineers, so we know a lot about Engineering careers. The Math discussions made me realize how little we know about Math careers.
Other families are likely having similar Math vs Engineering discussions. In some cases it may be a factor in the college choice. (Engineering schools usually do offer math majors. But schools with Math may not have engineering, especially if more of a liberal arts college). So I decided to start this thread.
