Hi guys. I am doing my final A level exams (UK system) this May and I plan to study aerospace engineering. I am mostly interested in the astronautical side of aerospace. I would like to work later in life in the US. However I did not apply to the US for undergraduate studies. Currently my options include Imperial College London UK and the University of Toronto Canada. The course at Imperial is Aeronautical Engineering and from the course modules, it seems there's hardly any emphasis on the astronautical side of things. I emailed Imperial to verify this and they seem to agree. The degree I would get is a MEng in Aeronautical Engineeering. Is there a way of working in the space industry with a degree in Aeronautical Engineering? Do I need to study further and specialise in a space related field? If so, is doing a PhD the only option for study after a MEng? My other option, the University of Toronto, offers a BASc in engineering. According to their website, they have students going off to very good universities in the US for masters. My understanding is that having a masters degree in aerospace engineering (space related) from a reputed US university would boost my career prospects in the space industry. However, U of T is generally ranked many places lower for engineering than Imperial College. Is it a better idea to study at Imperial College? Imperial is ranked higher on all the ranking systems, but does ranking really matter? And in general, is it more difficult to get an aerospace job in the US with a UK degree, compared to an equivalent US or Canadian degree?
