Hello Aakil,

I'm not sure what exactly the course numbers will be at your university, or what the EXACT major name may be (as these can sometimes differ from school to school), but I know that at my alma mater the appropriate major for your question was called "Aerospace Engineering Program", and it was a major that was specifically tailored for people like yourself who wanted to become an engineer working in the aeronautics industry.

Your best next step would be to contact the administrative department at your college(s) of interest and inquire about any similar major programs they may provide.


Good luck!

Hi Aakil,

Aerospace engineering degree requirements vary by school. There are a lot of math and science classes to build a foundation for learning in laboratories and test environments. You’ll still be able to take general education courses. In some schools it will take you up to five years to finish a bachelors degree. I recommend when choosing a school you look at cost, program and location. Location is important as usually local industries have connections with schools that allow or enable internships and after college opportunities. The school program will help ensure you get the right quality/experiences from your education. And cost should be a driver for making these decision, practice fiscal discipline before school and do your best to keep your costs low as it can be difficult to pay off loans and living expenses right after school. Best wishes, Eli
