This is the best time as far as job opportunities are concerned for Masters and PhD degree holders in mathematics. There are various institutes offering math education and research of world repute in India. Typically the road to an education in math starts after passing class 12. After passing class 12, an individual has an opportunity to either opt for a BSc degree or an integrated MSc degree or a BS degree or an integrated MS degree.
Apart from academia , a trained mathematician can be very well employed in Government departments engaged in space research ( the Indian Space Research Organization, or ISRO) , defense research ( Defense research and development organization or DRDO) , aeronautical research ( National Aeronautics Limited, NAL) to solve their special problems. Today, cryptology is in vogue ( the systems ensuring the safety of our credit card transaction based on some very sophisticated mathematics). Organizations such as the DRDO and the society foe electronic transactions and security ( SETS) are interested in mathematician with training in this area. Financial mathematics is another area that leads to well paid jobs. Computer giants such as IBM and Microsoft have research departments which have highly paid scientists who are either mathematicians or theoretical computer scientists.
