    You mean like interior decorating? :tongue2:

    I understand that aerospace / aeronautical engineering is pretty intense, but you may want to elaborate on your question a little.

    There is a larger industry than you think. Also that is a subjective question, depends on how good of one you are =]

    How old are you? Just curious.



    I'm assuming you'd want to work for NASA or its contractors?

    18 i actually just want to get the degree and not work. just study something else.

    I'm very confused about what you actually want to do with your life, but good luck with it.

    Can you actually work at NASA as an immigrant? Thought I read somewhere you have to be born in the USA.

    I think the only US Government job to which that applies is the head job: President of the US (conspiracy theories about the current president aside). As an example, Werner von Braun wasn't born in the US. Neither is a friend of a friend who worked for United Space Alliance (primary contractor to NASA).

    This thread (and the OP's responses / questions) is rather confusing. But as another poster says, good luck with that...

    thats rubbish i know lots of Iranians that work for NASA and they were born in Iran. luckily i was born in USA but i was raised in sweden.

    Hah, well von Braun is a very unique case as he's essentially a human tool that struck a deal with the U.S. in a rather covert operation.

    For most normal circumstances, unless you're a genius/technology leader of your field, I wouldn't count on immediate access to most of the security clearance jobs in the U.S if you don't at least have a U.S. citizenship
