I’m new to the field but I can tell you majoring in mechanical or Aerospace engineering is a good route to take. That does not mean it’s the only majors that can get you in the industry but they are fairly common. Other majors include but not limited to are electrical, computer science, materials, etc. It would help if you try and join any clubs in College such as AIAA. The SEA is another good club to join. I would really emphasize you try and figure out what is it that you would want to do in the aerospace industry. For example do you want to be designing, testing, or more paper work. Do you want to work for a small or large company? I hope this helps somewhat! By the way I did not tell you what AIAA or SEA stand for with the hopes that you goggle it and learn new things. In aerospace you will do a lot of learning on your own everyday is a different day learning and being able to find information on your own is a huge asset.
Benneth recommends the following next steps:
- Find colleges with mechanical or aerospace engineering programs.
- Do you want to work for a small or large company?
- Where are the aerospace companies you want to work for?
- Research company names and look at their job descriptions
