Aerospace or Aeronautical??? I'm a 17 year old IB student who takes the IB Diploma next year. My dream is to end up working on a high-flying Formula One (F1) team as their aerodynamisict. I also would like to work on plane models, space shuttles and cars...like designing them...I have a profound love of aerodynamics. But I ran into a problem when looking at university courses. I came across aerospace and aeronautical...what is the difference? The course structure looks the same...please advise me on which is better for my career wants.
