Shouldn't do aerospace engineering

  1. Mar 24, 2009 #1
    So I'm thinking of going into Aerospace engineering but have no idea if i will enjoy it. I'm a junior in high school and enjoy physics/math/science A LOT. Air crafts interest me, especially the whole NASA thing. For anyone in Aerospace now, do you find it intriguing? What aspects are "fun" about it? If you think i shouldn't do aerospace engineering, what other engineering major is "better?"

    Also, what's the pay ;)

    Re: Engineering!

    You're a long way from having to make this decision. The first 3-4 semesters of any university engineering program are the same. If I were you, I'd apply to schools for whichever kind of engineering has the highest rate of admission there (literally). Then I'd spend some time talking to professors in various departments, and come back to this decision in a couple of years, right before the classes start diverging.

    Go for it. You have plenty of time but the industry needs young enthusiastic engineers like you =]
