Hey Guys, I know there are some other posts on this, but I have a slightly different situation than most of the ones I've looked at. I'm a recently graduated Physics major. Starting junior-senior year I became interested in going into engineering. I would like to work in the space industry. More specifically, I am interested in propulsion and astrodynamics although I also have interests in multiple other aspects including power systems and robotics. I tried applying to some jobs and internships for the last few months, but haven't had any luck. I've been looking at going to graduate school for Aerospace engineering in the hopes that more relevant experience will make things easier while at the same time helping me decide exactly what I want to go into. However, it looks like mechanical engineering might be a good choice as well since most job descriptions that I've seen that are looking for aerospace engineers also allow mechanical. It seems like mechanical engineers might have an easier time getting into other engineering fields in case I decide to do something slightly different or can't immediately get into propulsion work. What are the major differences between aerospace and mechanical engineering? If I take aerospace electives while working towards an mechanical engineering degree would I have any significant disadvantage? Or would I be better off taking material classes in order to do propulsion? Also does anyone have advice on what kind of schools should shoot for? Are universities with better ratings worth the extra cost? Should I even consider a Phd? From what I've heard most people in the industry have a masters. Thanks!
