Math plays a vital role in computer science and by extension, software engineering. I am the opinion that as time goes by more and more of what we do in software will require a lot more mathematical applications.

Although most of it will be abstracted as usual the underlying principles will still be mathematical. An example of this is Analytics & Machine Learning. The new arrival of more powerful and application specific software has lead to an opportunity of advanced mathematical computation to be applied to software.

This will only get better I presume. See You In The Future!!
