I'm currently a high school senior applying to colleges, planning to major in aerospace engineering. However, I am concerned about the job outlook and employment locations for the field. I was to work in a R&D department of a major cororation but also want to stay reasonably close to home (NY). Are there any R&D jobs available in the Northeast? I can only seem to find oppurtunities in California. Also, how hard is it for an aerospace engineer to get a job with an undergraduate degree? What is an average base salary? And finally, are any aerospace engineers employed outside of the aerospace industry? Thanks for any help you can give.
