On entering the Aerospace Industry (current student):

  1. Aug 1, 2014 #1
    Hello everyone,

    I have decided to become an Engineer specifically to work on Space Technologies. I am just about to enter my Junior year of University. I was wondering what the best path would be to become an Astronautical Engineer, as I very much want to help engineer space-craft, rovers, etc.

    Path 1:
    -BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN AEROSPACE ENGINEERING

    Path 2:
    -BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN MECHANICAL ENGINEERING
    -MASTER OF SCIENCE IN ASTRONAUTICAL ENGINEERING

    Or if there is a better path, please enlighten me! :)

    I know that if I do a MechE major, I should take electives relating to materials, fluid dynamics, etc.

    Thanks!

    edit: I was also considering Path 2 with a minor in aerospace engineering, followed by the masters degree.
