Applied mathemics career prospects - Msc enough?
Looking for advice and information concerning the job prospects for a person holding a masters degree in applied mathematics - how good are they, and how much more opportunities would a PHD provide?
How many graduates overall continue on to receive their phds?
How do private employers value this degree in relation to each other? Note, that I am not particularly intrested in a academic career. My personal interests lie in the field of engineering.
Basically is there a place in the job market for a masters degree holder?

If your interests lie in engineering, then you should study engineering or seek for a position in an engineering design firm. Although good mathematics skills are useful, you'll need domain knowledge and practice in engineering.
