Bachelors degree in mechanical or aerospace engineering?

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

I want to be an aerospace engineer, but the university i want to go to doesn't offer it as a major (or master for that matter). So i was wondering if it would be best to first get a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering then get a master's degree in aerospace engineering (in another university) or ditch the university i want to go, and go to one that gives a bachelor's degree in aerospace engineeeing (then getting a master's degree).

Why would you want to go to a university that doesn't have the major you want?

Because my mom works at this University chain, and it would be free for her

Take the mechanical engineering degree because it overlaps a lot with aerospace engineering and it will leave you with options to move to different fields if you wanted to. Also you mentioned it would be free. Seems like a no brainer since you would have a very employable degree for free all the while still being able to still go to graduate school later for aerospace.
