tmoney611 posted a question in Questions and AnswersI currently am graduating with a B.S. in Computational and applied mathematics. I concentrated in statistics and have a minor in it, but am only also a class different from a Statistics B.S. as well. I took a class in mathematics of large data and it concentrated in Laplace and Fourier transformations of data, such as signals within pictures, voice and speaker recognition, and wavelets JPEG. I absolutely loved it. I was wondering what I should do now? I have heard that mathematicians can go to grad school for electrical engineering and not be behind if they are going to focus on signals and processing, which is what I would be doing, but am wondering how feasible it is? I know for a fact that mathematicians transition into systems engineering flawlessly since graduate school of systems engineering is mathematics of processes. However, I know a masters in applied mathematics would also open doors to different worlds, but normally lead to different kinds of jobs than my dream job. Other than that, should I just finish a bachelors degree in electrical engineering? I do not think would be more beneficial but I thought I would ask that as well. any advise would be greatly appreciated Thanks, Tom
rational_t posted a topic in Waiting it OutHi guys. I was wondering if any of you is also putting up with the agony of not hearing anything from BU. I applied for Systems Engineering in December and ever since nothing interesting has happened. Interestingly, admission results for other engineering programs at BU (including EE to which the SE program belongs) were being posted since the beginning of February on the admission results section of the cafe. Yet, nobody has posted anything regarding SE. A few days ago I sent an email to an administrative member of staff in the department and asked her if the SE division has already sent out any results. I received the terse reply that "Decisions should be going out soon." So, that makes me thinking that I can keep hopes. But I am not even sure of that. A whole lot in my life depends on this admission result. I am an international here and in order to start my studies I need to ask for a change of visa status which has recently become a very time consuming process. Therefore, receiving a late result endangers my chance of acquiring the right status and losing offers and scholarships. And that's not all. My husband is going to graduate in the next few months and start a job. So, it is upon me to tell him the city in which he should look for positions. He doesn't have a lot of time and... It's a freaky predicament causing severe headaches. So, please please please keep let me know if you heard anything from Systems Engineering PhD at BU. This means a lot to me. Thanks.
