Math BS Mathematics -> Defense Industry

  1. Mar 7, 2012 #1
    Hey guys,

    Does anyone know how feasible getting a decent job in the defense industry would be with only a BS in Math? Most of the jobs I've seen are looking for engineers, but there's got to be places a math major would fit, right?

    It is possible, but in reality there are very, very few jobs in which a BS in math is going to be more useful than an engineer in the defense industry. Plus it's hard to get a security clearance if you don't do an internship with a defense company.
