I am a computer science undergrad (almost done, so I can't switch to engineering sadly) and I was wondering if someone from the physics/engineering community could advise me on this. I know it sounds crazy but my question is: Is it possible/reasonable to teach oneself the physics, aeronautical, and electrical engineering knowledge required to draft a technical report for, and eventually prototype and build, a vertical takeoff and landing electric jet (along with all components)? I want to make this my life's mission. I have 16 hours a day to study textbooks, a large amount of motivation, some money I've saved that will last me a few years (putting aside that the project itself will require massive external funding), no family and nothing to lose. I'd love to hear your answers as people who have already acquired this type of knowledge. Can it be done? And if so, could you kindly point me to some resources to start me off? Many thanks.
