Hi Adam!

As you advance in your career, you'll notice that the math becomes a lot more abstract in that a lot of the work involves making assumptions. The equations we use day to day are derived formulas which makes math even more fun. We typical use different software depending on the task, cause one small mistake could lead to millions of dollars in losses.

Hi Adam,

When studying aerospace engineering you'll need to study a lot of math and physics. For math you'll need to start with algebra and geometry, but then as you get closer to college you'll need to take calculus which is a more advanced form of algebra. Engineering is a great degree to get because you can apply it to other professions in the future if you wanted. Good luck!!

Algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus. Differential equations and linear algebra, which you probably won't see much of until college. You'll also get lessons in college about how the equations and methods you learn in your abstract classes can actually be applied to solve problems in the real world.

# Andrew’s Answer

Aerospace engineering is an engineering discipline in line with civil engineering and electrical engineering. The minimum math prerequisites would be STEM-track Calculus I, Calculus II, and Calculus III, Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations, Linear Algebra. A student in aerospace engineering should not be surprised to be required to take additional advanced math courses such as Differential Geometry, Real Analysis, Complex Analysis, and Numerical Analysis.
