I am currently Aerospace Engineering at UT-Austin. I have filled out a fafsa every single semester and I have never gotten even $10. I'm just building up my debt with loans hoping to pay it off quick with an engineering salary. My brother graduated last semester from UT-Austin and he never got any aid during the four and half years he was here. It pretty much comes down to how much money your parents make when looking for aid from the government. Mine make to much so me and my brother haven't ever received anything. In my experience, neither Texas (the state) nor Texas (the University) are eager to give out money in any circumstances. The only break I have ever gotten is in state tuition which is about half of out of state.

Hi people I am going to do Master for Aerospace Engineering in the coming September and having a hard time to decide to go to which school as well and really like to hear some comment from you people...

First of all I have no doubt that I want to go for grad school for aerospace because working for aerospace industry is like my dream since I was in grade 3, and after 4 years of undergrad man I felt like I am so not ready and don't really know a lot. The thing is I am a Canadian, and so far University of Washington and Pennsylvania State University have gave me acceptance already, but because I am an international student the tuition is a whooping 28000 a year...I am still waiting for reply from the University of Toronto where I only have to pay around 8000 a year.

I am having such a hard time to decide where I want to go, it seem like I will have more opportunity to go to UW or PSU since they are actually in the state and both of them are top 20 in aerospace engineering I believe. However I think UT is the top one in aerospace engineering in Canada, but then there are not that much school has aerospace in Canada so I really have no idea where does UT stands against UW and PSU...and the different in tuition is just so great...Plus there doesn't seem to be much jobs in aerospace industry in Canada...

I am glad my family are supporting me continue my study and actually have the money ready for my tuition if I decide to go to US, but then UT is still an option for me to save a lot of money for my family as well...

Basically I would like to have any kind of comment on my dillema, and does anybody know how is UT's (Univertisy of Toronto) reputation in the aerospace industry? I think it has pretty good world standing at general engineering but not sure about its aerospace program...

Hey guys,
i would like to know which universities in the world are best for aerospace engineering as i wanna do a master's program. Please Suggest

THank you
It's easy to answer your question. The best aerospace universities are situated in countries with the most powerful aerospace industry. Nowadays there are only two such countries - Russia and US. One of the Russia's top Aerospace education Institution is MAI also known as Moscow Aviation Institute or the State University of Aerospace Technology. A lot of alumni are working for the greatest aerospace companies (Sukhoi Company, MIG, Tupolev, Kamov etc). MAI is the only one (or one of a couple) of world's aerospace universities that owns experimental-design bureau with the professional test pilot from MIG company and serial plane production. Also you should know that the creator of the stealth aircraft technology - Professor Ufimtsev from CALTECH is teaching students of Aircraft Electronics and Communication Systems Department. MAI has old soviet mono education system (5.5 years).

If you are interesting in rocket technologies you should learn more about Russian's top technical university - The Bauman State Technical University also known as Rocket College.

Best wishes.

Thread, if you are looking for a good university for masters or diploma in aeronautics without tuition fees, you should look into France! they have a different education system (Grandes ècoles, the elite selection system for engineering in France). ISAE (fusion of the two grande Écoles Supaéro and ENSICA at Toulouse which is THE town in Europe to be studying aeronautics) is a worldwide topranked school for engineering (possibly the best in europe) in the fields of aeronautics(I believe they only take graduate students). Actually their being a Grande École they only teach Aeronautics-Aerodynamics. It is easier to get into ENSICA than Supaero because before the fusion, Supaero was better; nevertheless, now ENSICA and Supaéro provide the same Masters + Diploma (ISAE). The school is paid by the state, so the only expenses you will have are livingexpences (residence or appartment).
Even if you should not be french speaking, with some courses and while living in France you'll get the hang of it.(I've experienced that myself being german-canadian in this elite system)

I hope I've been of any help...

Ryerson University in Toronto is good for Aerospace Engineering.
 
  • #33
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

is the best

but what about Astronautics?
 
  • #34
Astronautics,i don't have any schools in mind.I would have to make some more research before listing any other.I will try to do that as soon as possible.

I feel Stanford University is also one of the best to start up with your Aerospace Engineering.
 
  • #36
so i'm pretty much set on aerospace engineering but i want to find a really good school that has a decent mens swim team or h2o polo team. Nothing like michigan or anything like that i just wanna do something for fun does embry riddle have any aquatics clubs???
