Future Career Paths

Northampton's program prepares graduates for immediate employment as laboratory aides or technicians, as scientific assistants, or in technical sales. Graduates of the two-year program, however, are heavily influenced to continue their studies by transferring to a four-year program. Four-year graduates who have transferred to one of NCC's partner institutions have earned degrees in fields as diverse as chemical or geological engineering, mathematics, and oceanography. Many will also find successful careers in secondary mathematics education. Mathematicians work in the federal government and in private science and engineering research. They work on teams with engineers, scientists, and other professionals.
