I've seen that CS and EE are the most math intensive majors outside the math department. Many students go all in and get the minor or double major.

But they do learn a certain kind of math. Personally I think a strong foundation in statistics is warranted. The calculus goes far beyond what is useful on the job.

Agree on the statistics, disagree on calculus. I use that all the time... even for business apps!
