Is it true that the 2 have a lot of overlapping curriculum? At least that's what i have heard, can an actual Aerospace engineer comment on this as well? I ask because i want to go into aerospace engineering but up here in canada, there are like 2 schools in the entire country that offer the program, so i work out the odds and if i dont get in to either one, would it just be better to go into a mech engineering program instead? which is offered by most schools? Also say if i wanted to come to the U.S. to study aerospace engineering, as a foreign student how much more in tuition would i have to pay?
