Probability in an astronomy career.

  1. Aug 1, 2006 #1
    I am a 22 yr old girl. I just went back to college and I am double majoring in aeronautical engineering and astronomy. I am little confused as how to strt getting internships and such in my field. Also, I don't really know how to go about having a career in astronomy. I do realize that i'll be in school for the next 10 years atleast. I am just a little confused and need feedback :smile:

    Do you want to do observation, or theoretical/computational? Either way the best way is to start talking to your professors about research work. Start looking into who is working on research projects that interest you and contact them.
