Aerospace and linear algebra
At our university, next to Calculus 1,2,3 every other math is linear algebra. Can someone explain what an aerospace engineer can do with linear algebra? Where and how is it applied/what is its use?

Aerospace is a huge field, and practically every aspect of it uses linear algebra. Structures: linear algebra plays a huge role in finding structural modes. Guidance, navigation, and control: you can't make step one without a good understanding of linear algebra. Flight: linear algebra is at the heart of finite element analysis and computational fluid dynamics.
