Engineering Aeronautical or Aerospace Engineering?

  1. May 4, 2012 #1
    I'm pretty much confused right now, I've just completed Higher National Diploma in Aerospace engineering and i aim to study further about aviation science and management concepts in aviation. I'm mainly confused on which course to chose - B.Sc in Aeronautical engineering or in Aerospace engineering. Both might sound same but some of you might know how different they are. After Bachelor i want to do a Master's in Aviation Business Management (MBA in Aviation management).
    And i also want to know which university offers good course in Aeronautical engineering. Most of the universities offer undergraduate courses in Aerospace engineering, i am trying to find aeronautical engineering course.
    Advices or Info are welcomed.

    I'm not fully sure what you are asking, but if you want to go into aviation, choose aeronautical.

    Pretty much the same thing, only difference is aerospace engineering might contain modules in space engineering and robotics instead or aeronautics modules
