Physics Aerospace Jobs with Physics Major?

  1. Apr 22, 2012 #1
    Is it possible to get a job in aerospace industries with a major in physics? I am planning to go for either a MS or PhD later on if I do pick a BS in physics.

    I like theory more than applications. Obviously applications are important, but physics appeals to me more. Its the kind of reading I do in my free time.

    What kinds of jobs would be available with a BS in physics?

    Boeing is a huge industry here in the Seattle area, and they hire physics majors.

    But you should consider studying Aerospace Engineering if your true goal is to work in aerospace.
