GAtech or Clemson

  1. Jul 10, 2013 #1
    I am a SC resident looking to get into aerospace engineering. I have been accepted to both Clemson and Georgia tech as a transfer student but which school should I attend considering the following:
    -Clemson does not have an undergrad aerospace program while GT's is rated in the top 5 internationally
    -Clemson will cost me ~5-10,000 a year where GT will be ~30-40,000 a year
    -I plan to attend grad-school
    My big question is the added debt that I will accrue at GT worth it
    will the GT name and the career specific degree outweigh the cost

    I say go to Clemson and save a lot of money just because you are an in-state student. Plus I love how the whole city is built around the school.

    How do you plan to get into aerospace engineering if your school doesn't have a program in it?

    My understanding is that a large number of aerospace engs. do mechanical eng. as their undergrad and move from there, though I might be wrong.

    OK, let's go one more level, then. Why do you think a graduate school in aerospace engineering will accept you over a candidate with a degree in aerospace engineering?
