Robert J.’s Answer

Tons of work if you get either a mechanical engineering degree (more broad) or aerospace engineering degree. I like designing new products. Learn CAD right away, either Solidworks or Creo. Student editions are available for low cost. I have faith you can do it!
Don't be afraid if it's hard. Just keep learning!
You have plenty of time.

Paul’s Answer

Since aircraft maintenance engineering is part of aerospace, aerospace covers a larger area and thus, more potential opportunities. That's good, especially if you are new to the industry and don't know exactly what it is that you want to do.

Take the time to figure out what interests you the most. Is it helicopters or satellites? Do you want to design new things or improve existing ones? Would you like to work at a major aerospace company in a large city, or a small maintenance base in the middle of nowhere? In aerospace, you can do it all, and nearly anywhere in the world.

As for me, I work in the finance end of business aircraft completions, quoting the customization of new aircraft. However, my background began as an FAA A&P mechanic.

Eric’s Answer

I worked as a repair development engineer at an aircraft maintanance repair and overhaul station and my educational background is a bachelors in mechanical engineering. All of my coworkers had a degree in either mechanical engineering or aerospace engineering. So if you pursue a degree in either discipline you can find work as an aircraft maintanance engineer, but will have more flexibility in your career.
