Would a dual undergrad degree in Applied Physics/Mathematics serve me well in an area like nuclear engineering?

Ultimately I want to go into some sort of mechanical engineering, what exactly I'm not sure. I've considered areas like automotive, aeronautical, and nuclear, though I'm learning towards nuclear.

Most of the colleges I've applied to offer a major in engineering, but I'm also applying to Christopher Newport University because I like the approach that they take to learning and it's a good cost and I have connections in the area which could potentially greatly lessen costs of living during college. However, they don't offer a mechanical engineering program, though they do offer an electrical engineering major which I'd be open to consider.

One path that I had in mind was pursuing a double major in applied physics and mathematics or applied mathematics. To me this seems like a good idea and sounds like it would probably give me a large amount of the knowledge I need for a career in engineering, albeit I might miss out on some of the technical knowledge and experience but that could be accounted for if I actively seek out internships and such.

A discipline in nuclear engineering often requires graduate education anyways so I figured I would take the financially secure option now and get specific education in graduate school but I may be overestimating the usefulness of a math degree

I'm not entirely sure about this course of action but financially it's one of the better options available to me at the moment so I wanted to seriously consider it. However, I wanted to get the opinions of some people who have been in the field for some time. What do you all think, is this a reasonable option?

Thank you for your time.

Physics vs Applied Mathematics for a future Mechanical engineering career

Hello, everyone, I am currently in freshman year and I want to become a mechanical engineer, my school currently doesn't have an engineering major but they have a small unofficial engineering program, of which I am currently part of. This program essentially wants you to transfer after two years, but it has irrational requirements for me so I am planning to transfer to an actual engineering college.

However, in the event I don't get into my college of choice, I want to continue at my current school with an actual major. I thought the best ones for engineering would be applied mathematics or physics, so I just wanted your choice on that.

Also, do you think I can be a mechanical engineer with an applied mathematics or physics major? Does a BA vs BS matter for physics.

I'm interested in biomechanical engineering, mechanical engineering, and aerospace. I also want to work in upper management one day and hope to get a Master's in ME and possibly an MBA one day.

Thank you for all your help.

Looking for tips or advice - I have an extremely strong applied mathematics and numerical methods background (engineering PhD). Some programming (MATLAB and FORTRAN mostly). Looking to transition from defense into computational finance. Can you guys steer me toward some companies to apply to?

Hey guys,

First, apologies if this post is unwelcome on this sub. Happy to delete if needed.

I am currently an engineer working for the government. I really have a passion and dense education in numerical methods and applied mathematics. I have a PhD in these areas.

I find that my love for the math side just isn't doing it for me in my current job, and roles in computational finance seem really awesome. I'm pretty dangerous in numerical methods, probability, modeling etc and feel like I could bring some mathematical depth that a traditional finance guy may not have. However, my background isn't in finance.

I was wondering if you guys had any tips for someone like me to break into the field? Companies to apply to that are hiring? Good remote roles? Maybe some necessary self study to even be considered?

Appreciate y'all's time.

[Graduate/certificate] Non-math graduate, want to learn applied mathematics. Can I get a certificate or degree?

I am a non-math graduate (Graphic Design BA) and I recently started self learning math on the side, to ultimately get into physical modeling. Having only formally learned until 12th grade calculus/college algebra, I started self studying: I completed Stitz & Zeager's PreCalc text, and I'm now going through University of British Columbia's CLP Calc 1 textbook.

A friend suggested, since I was so dedicated to learning the requisite math for physical modeling, that I do a master's or a certificate program in applied mathematics. Despite how long it might take, I intend to essentially self study applied math; so I figured, maybe I can get a degree or certificate at the end of all that effort. What's the most direct way for a non math major like me to get a certificate or degree in applied mathematics? If I take MITx's Calc 1A-C, Linear Algebra courses on edX, would those count for completing the prerequisites for an online applied mathematics program of some sort?

Edit: I live in the US, in case it's relevant.

What is best job to do given an applied mathematics degree while waiting for graduate school...?

Hello, I just entered my senior year and I'm having a lot of existential crises right now.

I want to go to grad school after I graduate, but given there will be at least half of a year in which I am not at any school, minimum, there will also be at least half of a year in which I no longer have financial aid. (I don't have parents in my life, therefore I support myself.)

So, I'm trying to figure out... What jobs are likely to hire and relatively easy to prepare for such that I could get any necessary certifications while I'm in my senior year, and make a good amount of money while I'm waiting to go to graduate school?

Also, I apologize if this isn't the appropriate subreddit to post on, but quite frankly I don't know of any others which know of how applied mathematics jobs would work. Thank you all!

Experienced MLE with an almost complete PhD in Applied Mathematics wants to break into quant trading

Hi,

So I am 39 and have had a variety of careers, the last 10 years I have been working through a BSc in Pure Mathematics with a Statistics minor, then working through a PhD in Applied Mathematics (Biological modelling). I have also been in Data Science and Machine Learning for the past 4 years. None of this work was related to trading.

I am keen to break into this field. Ideally would I love to start my own firm, but happy to have some actual experience first.

I am US and Australian citizen currently living in the UK and my family and I are thinking of moving to Iceland. I'd love to land a role in finance (quant or investment of any kind) in Iceland.

Are there any tips or suggestions?

Analysis of Algorithms for Minor in Applied Mathematics

Considering a minor in applied mathematics, but am not sure about being able to take all of the prerequisites and then the required courses by graduation. I took CSOR 4231 Analysis of Algorithms I earlier, and was wondering if it would be possible for me to count that as one of the courses towards my Applied Math minor if I asked the applied mathematics program advisor. The bulletin says that certain courses could be petitioned to count towards such a requirement if they are in IEOR, COMS, MAT, STAT, or APMA. If not CSOR 4231, what about a course such as COMS 4733 Computational Aspects of Robotics, or Machine Learning?

Stick with CS or go for Applied Mathematics: Computational Science?

Preface: I’m currently a second year at school A studying CS and want to transfer to School B. School A isn’t a competitive school and consequently, the engineering/cs department is poorly run. School B is a lot more competitive (only 8 of 274 CS transfer candidates were accepted) and arguably better run, so I applied as a transfer student with my first choice major as CS, second choice as Applied Math: Computational Science. More than likely, if I make it to school B, I’d study the latter.

More preface: The consequences of school A having a subpar program is that I’ve only taken 1 programming course and 1 data science course in my 3 semesters there. I have however taken 4 math classes (discrete math and calc 1-3) and have really enjoyed it.

I know that to be successful in your field, you have to have a passion for what you study. I’ve grown to really enjoy math and want to keep in the tech industry. Data Science, ML, and AI interests me the most. I can’t really say that I have a β€œpassion” for CS yet considering I’ve only taken 2 intro CS classes at school A (and haven’t learned anything new outside of what 3 weeks worth of CodeAcademy has taught me).

Should I go for a school B and switch majors, or ride out school A? What are the job prospects like for someone with an Applied Mathematics Degree with a focus in Computation? Will it be harder/easier to find a job? Is grad school a must?

I study theory and run numerical simulations of complex systems, sometimes performing statistical analysis on them and come up with theories to explain behaviours. The area of research atm consists of fluid dynamics and studies the collective behaviour of certain agents in complex fluids. My doctorate is in the 'school of mathematical sciences'.

Transition Applied to Pure Mathematics PhD (Should I Hold On?)

Hi all,

Apologies if you get a lot of posts like this. Not sure where else to ask.

Basically, I started my PhD in applied mathematics about two months ago and on one hand I enjoy it, but on the other it's a lot more science and a lot less math than I was hoping for. I find myself longing to do more pure math again (like functional analysis, theory of PDEs, real analysis, ect). I

I'm not really used to the scientific thinking and I'm finding it very hard to find a scientific question that'll have actual real life impact (and which is also mathematically interesting to me).I chose to do a PhD in applied mathematics because I want what I do to have impact in a field that's important to me. However if I'm not actually able to contribute anything worthwhile ... I might as well do the maths I like more.Basically my questions are: Is it even an option to find a new PhD at this stage? Should I hold on for longer to see if I can find a question that meets my criteria?

Factors:

I have a quite a good academic background in the pure areas I'm interested in

I have no research experience in the pure areas

I have no references who work in the pure areas

My supervisor is actually very nice and it would be awkward leaving his group. I might not get lucky again.

Literally FREE MONEY! Applied mathematics to build an indestructible portfolio

I have been doing this for 1 month now and I'm 2k up, I really think this is the new way to build your portfolio with stocks.

It all started when I was thinking about my trading history, every fucking time I got wrecked. If I close a buy order, the stock usually goes down, the same way for a sell order, when I sell usually goes up. So I was thinking very hard on this, how could this binary outcome be so hard to achieve? Well, I invented a new way to build your portfolio so you will be 100% safe, I call it the B.R.T (Bait Retard Trades).

BRT - How does it work?

You will not do trading any different, you will continue to do your stupid trades, but this time you will use only up to 30% of your portfolio on your own trading ideas, and the other 70% you will use to perform the exact opposite. Warning! This will only work if you are honest with yourself, you should really think about what you think is best to use with your 30%, don't cheat and think the opposite just to use that on the 70%, you must trust the fact that you are actually retarded and don't know what you are doing, therefore the opposite position of your genuine choice will be the best. For example, last week I was thinking about getting some calls on PLTR that expires in a week, for many reasons I thought this was the best decision, so I did 30% of calls on PLTR and 70% on puts, made some money on the fact that I don't know what I'm doing. Being retarded gives you a superpower, you ALWAYS have the answer, it's just not what you think it is, it's the exact opposite.

Many colleges including DU is not recognizing applied mathematics as a option subject. What about students who have taken applied maths in their +2?

Recently i read a article stating that applied maths offered by CBSE will not be considered equivalent to mathematics for BA(H) Economics but will be considered for B.Com (H). Also many commerce related programmes have no mention of applied mathematics in their eligibility criteria.

So what about students who took applied maths as it was stated during introduction that it will be helpful getting admission in various programmes now CBSE has also put applied maths under minor subject category. I think it should be atleast under a major optional subject category since syllabus is vast and tougher than other optional or minor subjects. Applied maths includes topics like calculus,integrals,limits, continuity, functions , sets, probability etc. These topics are much difficult than any other optional subjects. So that means all the effort students put have wasted if universities dont recognize this subject.

I wanted to opt for BCA but the eligibility criteria of almost every college includes business maths and statistics but no mention of applied maths. Please let me know your thoughts.
