Mechanics is everywhere, which is why mechanical engineers can work in a very wide range of contexts (studies, calculations, trials, methods, manufacturing, maintenance, marketing, etc.) and industrial sectors (transport, equipment, automobile, textile machinery, robotics, shipbuilding, construction, aeronautics, IT, food processing, etc.).

They must therefore possess extensive knowledge not only in science and technology at large, but also in business and project management.

The scope for the application of mathematics has been steadily increasing and now covers all sectors of the economy: transport, meteorology, climatology, economics, sociology, environment, etc. Furthermore, mathematics is used in every research field (physics, computer science, biology, chemistry, geology) for data analysis (statistics, graphical representation) and modelling purposes.

Mathematical engineers possess cutting-edge theoretical and analytical skills and are therefore eagerly sought after. Outside the academic and public research sectors, there is a high demand for mathematicians in the private and industrial sectors, such as banking, insurance (design of financial products) and high-technology industries (development of new products and technologies), which recruit top-level researchers and engineers.
