Aerospace engineering as a career option

  1. May 21, 2009 #1
    I'm trying to figure out the most suitable branch of engineering for myself.
    As far as I know about aerospace engineering at the undergraduate level you have to study all sorts of exciting subjects like fluid mechanics, thermodynamics,relativity,etc
    I'm actualy more interested in going on for research in such areas and after reading lots of journals,I found that an undergraduate degree in aerospace engineering followed by Phd in it would be a great option.

    I'm a little hesitant to go directly for a basic Sciences course since we don't have very good colleges around.

    Please give me a dscription of the studies related to aerospace engineering,and inform me about the prospects in the field. Would it be a good option for me to proceed in the course I stated above?(I'm in India,so please consider the career options in my country)

    Also, is mechanical or electrical engineering good options as per my requirements?
