Hey everyone. So I have been considering a career in either aerospace engineering or a computer programming job. (I’m 16 btw) Obviously, I am posting this because I have some questions that I need an AE to answer. There is, after all, only so much one can learn from google. What I do know about AE is: · It requires a bachelor’s degree · You design and analysis aircraft parts I have questions that I haven’t been able to find an answer to online. 1. When you prioritize projects, which projects are prioritized and why? 2. What goes into deciding which projects get prioritized over others? 3. What tools do you use to design the parts? 4. How much programming do you do? 5. What computer languages would be the best to learn? 6. Knowing what you know now, what would you do differently if you could go back in time? 7. How much contact with people do you have to do? Things like phone calls etc. 8. How much math is involved in designing components? 9. Is there something similar to AE I can do at home so I can get a feel for what its like? I think I would go for the aerodynamics area in AE over the other ones. There seem to be a lot of areas an AE could get involved in and I would prefer something to do with aerodynamics as it holds the most interest for me. Now for number 9, im someone that needs to try something before I know I like it or not. I have to actually do an activity before I know if its something I like doing. I already program a little bit and I know its something I like doing but I want to see what AE is really all about before I make a firm decision on a career.
