Interested in becoming an Aerospace Engineer

  1. Aug 14, 2015 #1
    Sorry if this post has been made before, I could not find it but I have an interest in becoming an aerospace engineer but I have some questions to see if it's even right for me. One question is how good at math do you recommend I be and how much math is really involved? I'm alright at math, not my strongest but I'm not horrible at it. I'm currently a junior in high school and I'm taking AP Biology this year so I'm guessing it would be a good idea to do physics or AP physics next year, right? My final question is what courses/ degree should I pursue in college? Sorry if I worded this wrong. Thanks!

    Very good. But this requires training instead of raw talent. So practice until you're good at it.

    You'll need to know a lot of math eventually. It's quite math intensive.


    Aerospace engineering such be an obvious choice for a major.

    Micromass nailed it. Read his answer again and resolve to become very good at math.
