SJSU Aerospace vs UC Davis Aerospace?

  1. Oct 23, 2009 #1
    Hello. I am a student at a junior college in the bay area of California. I plan on transfering to UC Davis or SJSU to major in Aerospace Engineering. Other than the fact that Davis is a UC and San Jose is a state university, and that probably means they don't do research, would going to Davis be better than SJSU? How are the programs different? I want to work at Boeing when I graduate.

    I can't speak to the benefits of one school over the other, but why would a state university not do research? I do see that SJSU does not offer a PhD in mechanical or aerospace engineering... masters only. That doesn't necessarily mean that the undergraduate education you'd receive at UCDavis is any better than that of SJSU.
