Computational Mathematics vs Data Science at Waterloo

Hello, one quick question, which one of these majors is better? Computational Mathematics or Data Science. I am interested in both of them, as they are computer science-related careers. It is hard to decide on which one to choose because I am pretty sure I will enjoy both of these majors. Which one, in your opinion, is better in terms of difficulties, job prospects…etc.

  1. This is akin to asking whether you should get a box of Cheerios or Frosted Flakes…they’re both essentially the same, bud. But it’s too early to ask anyway since you haven’t even stepped foot into university to take the required courses for each. You wouldn’t be able to declare your area of concentration until after completing freshman year.

  2. Kid. Instead of spamming this dead forum everyday, how about put all your questions together in ONE WRITING and post it on REDDIT. https://reddit.com/r/OntarioUniversities/. You will get more responses if you post there and in the Waterloo subs. You keep posting the same questions everyday and getting responses from the same person. Give it a rest and move on.

The last time help desk systems become very popular and I believe that if you will be competent here it will be really nice in future work. It was really hard to migrate the info from one system to another, but thanks to some developers the information from Jira to Zendesk migration is really easy. I believe in you, Bro
