This is the best time as far as job opportunities are concerned for Master 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 start after passing the class 12th. After passing class 12, the aspirant have 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 employed in Government departments engaged in space research ( the Indian Space Research Organization, ISRO),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 credit card transactions are based on some very sophisticated mathematics). Organizations such as the DRDO and the Society for Electronic Transactions and Security ( SETS) are interested in mathematicians 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.
