Report on Panel on Research Careers in Industry at the SIAM Applied Math Education Conference
John Zweck, UTD
I will report on a panel on research careers in industry that included representatives from the financial, biomedical, and cognitive computing sectors. The panelists first described the research enterprise of their company. Then they discussed what technical skills they recommend students develop, the importance of rigorous training in mathematics, experience with mathematical model and with software development, exposure to applications, and the communication skills necessary to work in an interdisciplinary team.
