I'm currently working on a BS in astronomy (basically a physics degree with astronomy/astrophysics courses to fill electives) and am hoping to also obtain a MS in astronomy as well. My question is in regards to non-academic paths taken by degree holders in physics and astronomy, particularly those with just BS and MS degrees. I've seen a few engineering jobs posted at engineering firms looking for individuals with degrees in engineering or hard sciences, specifically in CS and physics. I've been particularly interested in aerospace/systems engineering. I know a degree in either of these fields would be ideal, but the only qualifications for a lot of these jobs is a BS/MS in engineering or related science. Has anyone made the jump from physics/astronomy to engineering, specifically in the aerospace industry?
