College Student Good in Math, Bad in Biology and Organic Chemistry Need Career/Major

edited April 2013 in Engineering Majors
I'm a college student and I find myself clicking with math easier than I do with biology and organic chemistry classes. Basically I am thinking to go to dental school, but at the same time I am thinking about other options because I would consider myself a C student in bios and organic chemistry. I am thinking if I went the more mathematical route and avoided the sciences completely what kind of job can I obtain with a degree in the mathmatics/engineering department? I like interaction with people and I fear this will hinder me from pursing any sort of mathematical/engineering degree. I have not taken physics yet, so it is hard for me to see how I will proceed being an engineering major. Sorry for the long post, helpful advice will be very much appreciated.

    What about math, statistics, or computer science?

    How about Industrial Engineering since that's more math oriented

    I'm doing well in Calculus 2, I did well in Statistics, but I am not too interested in computer science, I prefer more interaction with people.

    Lydia15- How is the job stability with industrial engineering? Job stability is also a huge factor for myself.

    Computer Science can have a lot interaction with people. It is one of the most versatile fields. However, you most really love math(discrete), solving problems, logic, and a passion for programming, otherwise you will suffer lol

    BTW Software Engineers have to interact with each other, otherwise the software they make won't be good

    An Applied Mathematics major can lead you to finance and business. There is a lot of potential for interaction there. As an engineer of some kind it is also necessary to have people skills to advance to management. It is a fallacy that all engineers don't work with people. In fact, engineering requires an ability to work in multidisciplinary teams and understand those in less technical areas too. That is why we have an Interprofessional Project course requirement at Illinois Institute of Technology and other engineering schools have similar courses.
