Many mathematicians who have never worked in industry find it difficult to imagine life as an industrial mathematician. Many people in industry find it difficult to imagine what role a mathematician could play in their organisation. Yet many highly effective people in these companies are actually mathematicians quietly using advanced mathematics to solve problems that those around them don’t necessarily recognise as highly mathematical. I will describe some of my experiences working in a large engineering company, illustrated with examples of some of the many interesting problems where mathematics has played a vital role.
