The type of career I would like to have would be one related to mathematics. A career that I think would be viable would be a civil engineer. I would be a civil engineer because they help plan, manage and design construction of transport systems. I have always believed that people in general need to have a great public transportation service to be able to live and manage their lives easily. Mathematics in general pleases me and I definitely can imagine using it for not only in the advancement of technology but also the advancement of people’s lives and society that is built around those transport systems.
I feel that as technology becomes more advanced it needs to be better integrated into systems that people use in their everyday lives. Without the planning and creation of such utilities, the systems themselves start to stagnate and fall behind into a form of obsolescence that makes it difficult for the common man and infrastructure in general. My contribution to the mathematics will not only help provide for myself but for other people as well.
