摘要:In this seminar, the speaker will focus on answering several frequently asked questions: “What can we do with a math degree or with a degree that provides strong mathematics training?” “What type of training do we obtain from college mathematics classes?” More Broadly, “When recruiting someone for a new position, what is a company mostly looking for?” “What are the most important skills one could learn to help him/her become successful in the 21st century?” The speaker will introduce possible careers for a math major or someone with strong math skills. She will focus on top skills needed for non-academic careers like industrial jobs.

 

  In an attempt to emerge the hot data science and mathematics in classrooms, the speaker recently taught a project based class which focused on industry problems given by local industry companies. When working on the projects, her students leaned software requested by the industry representatives and advanced methods to analyze large data. The speaker will introduce the organization of the class, benefits students obtained and challenges students faced when working on the projects.  Summary of results of the projects will be discussed.
