Planning on Mechanical Engineering or Aeronautics.

  1. Jul 27, 2011 #1
    I'm planning on going to USA in school. If I take BSc in Mathematics is it possible for me to go to Aerospace engineering as major or Mechanical? I have searched many schools and some of them teach Mechanical as BSc. But if I will not get in to school that teaches Mechanical engineering can I take BSc in Mathematics and go on from there?

    Sorry I'm not so good in english but I hope you get what I'm trying to say :)

    Getting a master's degree in engineering will be difficult with just a bachelor's in mathematics. There would be a prohibitive amount of catch-up needed for prerequisite classes in physics and science.

    To get a master's in enginering, you'll need a bachelor's in physics or engineering.
