The scope for the application of mathematics has been steadily increasing and now covers all sectors of the economy: transport, meteorology, climatology, economics, sociology, environment, etc. Furthermore, mathematics is used in every research field (physics, computer science, biology, chemistry, geology) for data analysis (statistics, graphical representation) and modelling purposes.
Mathematical engineers possess cutting-edge theoretical and analytical skills and are therefore eagerly sought after. Outside the academic and public research sectors, there is a high demand for mathematicians in the private and industrial sectors, such as banking, insurance (design of financial products) and high-technology industries (development of new products and technologies), which recruit top-level researchers and engineers.
