Mech. Eng. with an aerospace emphasis?

  1. Mar 3, 2016 #1
    Hey guys, newbie to this forum.

    I plan on starting my mechanical engineer major this fall. I will be doing it with an aerospace emphasis to it as I would like to work with planes?

    How hard would it be? Is it doable? My math is okay. Taking AP calc currently and hope to start out at Calc II my first semester if I pass the test...

    What do you mean by "How bad would it be?" It happens all the time. It's a pretty common path into the aerospace industry.

    Well, Engineering IS hard, in general, but of course it is doable. I know there are degrees in Aerospace Engineering, but a MechE would probably do as well. You will study a lot of fluid dynamics, aerodynamics, materials, controls...
