    I am studying I year B.E. I am fond of maths and would like to pursue anything based on maths. Please let me know how would I use my mathematical skills while continuing with degree?
    I know that engineering is based on maths only andthat I can apply my skills in my subjects. But I dont like those subjects as much as the queen of science. What can I do in pure mathematics?
    Professions like actuaries seem good but are there any better choices? Earning money is not a primary goal of mine. Suggest me something fascinating and satisfactory career.
