Career Question of engineer in aviation industry

  1. Feb 22, 2010 #1
    Hello, everyone. I come from hong kong.

    I am still barely a fresh graduate (1.5yr after grad.)with good grades in school.
    currently, I am working as an asst. mechanical engineer.

    However, I am willing to become an engineer in aviation industry.
    I am wondering what would be a possible way to work in overseas.
    Should I obtain a master / Mphill in oversea university?

    Hi Su,

    Which part of aviation industry are you interested in? Aircraft/Aerospace engineering? Aviation management? Aircraft operation/maintenance? Are you interested in industry or research job?

    If you have already had an idea which area you like, you can probably find a good school somewhere in Europe or US. But please bear in mind that if you are interested in aerospace engineering, it could be a little bit harder for you to find a job as a foreigner (I am talking about US) since a lot of aerospace engineering jobs are defense related and would not go to non-citizen.
