    I am curious to know what is the most math intensive engineering major among these majors based on experience of students.

    Thanks.

    Voted software. Civil no, mechanical no. Elec, aero, software depends. The higher level you're in (e.g. PhD, RA), the more math you will need to handle. Elec and aero are more dense in calculation and software in algorithm.

    Could you explain what's behind this question? Do you somehow want to do the least maths intensive engineering course? All engineering degrees require a lot of maths.

    From speaking to other engineers Aero is the most maths intensive, but electrical has more complex physics involved.
