Bachelors vs masters or phd in engineering

  • #1
I wanted to be more specific in my title, but the space was limited, my question is can one get a masters or a phd in an engineering which is different from the one they got a bachelors in?

For example up here in Canada i think 2 schools offer an aerospace engineering program at the bachelor level, but a lot more offer it as a masters degree or a phd, so could one say get a bachelors in mechanical engineering and still do a masters or phd in aerospace engineering?

It really depends on the requirements of the program.

In this case a Mechanical Engineering degree would translate very well for a masters or PhD in Aerospace

Usually, yes, especially from aerospace to mechanical.

I was mechanical for undergrad, and now I am aero for PhD. So its definitely doable. Mechanical is pretty broad and most universities give you the opportunities to focus on certain aspects. For instance I focused on aerospace related subject through course work and internships.
