Main Question or Discussion Point

Do I need the special "areospace" or "aeronautic" degrees?

I've been thinking about going to a local college that has a very good engineering and physics department and was wondering if I needed the specific areospace or aeronautic engeneering titles or do I just need mechanical engineering or electrical or something I haven't considered?

Depends on what you want to do.

At this point, all I know is, I either want to go into physics or engineering, beyond that, I haven't decided yet. I honestly don't know my career options with either degrees. Where would be the best place to find out?

If you don't have much idea what you want to do, I would go for one of the big "generai" branches like mechanical or electrical engineering.

Don't get the wrong idea that you "need" an aero eng degree to work in aerospace. There are many MEs and EE's there.
