Working for CSA as a CompSci graduate?

  1. May 20, 2013 #1
    Hello everyone, a little info on my current situation. Over the past few years I've been wanting to change careers from the trades, and go back to school. I'm currently 26 years old, I just reapplied to an adult high school program to relearn all the math, physics, and other sciences I've forgotten over the years :)

    Next fall, I plan to enroll at my local university as a CompSci undergraduate. One of my dreams would be to work for the Canadian Space Agency, especially within their robotics department and their work with the ISS. Looking at their site, it seems like their is a lot more opportunities for Engineers, so I have considered Mech Eng as an option as well, but find myself leaning towards Comp Sci.

    Does anyone know of Comp Sci majors getting to work with the CSA or anything related? What kind of path should I consider as far as specializations if I want to go for it? My university(UofManitoba) offers specializations in Software Engineering, Databases, AI, HCI & Graphics, Networks & Security, Comp Systems & Theoretical. I'm thinking of going for honors in a specialization, with a math minor, though my university also offers joint programs with CompSci/Math, or CompSci/Physics&Astronomy as well, maybe that would be the better choice. Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
