With my interest in space and engineering, will going into an aerospace engineering major even be relevant in 5 years?

As of recently there has been a drop of budgeting for space exploration programs. I am concerned for the relevance and ability to get a job in the field that interests me.

Hello Bryce! Aerospace engineering will definitely still be relevant for many years to come, so I would not shy away from studying in this area. NASA isn't the only company that works on space exploration. There are companies like SpaceX and Blue Origin which are working on private space flight and these missions will help us understand how we can get humans to Mars one day. There are also companies like Planetary Resources, which are working on mining asteroids and studying space. These are just a few examples of the innovative things that are happening. So study engineering, aerospace or otherwise. It will always be relevant because it moves our understanding of what is possible forward.
