can I still go for it ?
can I go for aeronautic engineering in masters level even if I had taken automobile engineering in bachelors level. #professor #mechanical-engineering #aerospace-engineering #aeronautics #educational-leadership
I agree with Mr. Hossain. You can also apply for jobs in the aviation field as an automotive engineer and take the training needed for the company depending on the field you work in. Say, electrical, software, mechanical or structural courses related to aviation.
I really recommend taking the training to be an airplane mechanic (Airframe and Powerplant Mechanic). You end up with lots of hands-on knowledge. After the training you take the FAA tests and get an A&P License. Even if you don't use it as a mechanic, the knowledge for a design engineer is invaluable.
Of course, you can get a master's in aeronautical engineering even though your undergraduate background is in automotive engineering. There may be a few more aeronautical bachelor level courses you will begin with at the beginning of your master's program, but it can be done.
I have a friend who studied mechanical at the bachelor level and aerospace at the graduate level and another friend who studied mechanical engineering at the bachelor level and he did computer science at the graduate level. The more disparate the two fields of study, the more "catch up" classes you will have to do in the beginning of your master's program. There is quite a bit of overlap in aerospace and automotive I would think, in terms of fluids, thermodynamics, and structural background. This is what I have seen from my experience with programs at different universities in the United States. I hope this helps. Good luck!
It depends on what classes automotive engineering require and the pre-requites that aeronautical require. I have seen a few automotive engineering programs that do not require calculus, physics or chemistry. Without these courses, you will will have to take 3-4 years of engineering courses in order to be able to comprehend what is taught in aeronautical.
In this case, you should consider double majoring. Again, this depends on the automotive engineering course work.
Why are you trying to do your undergrad in automotive?
In any case, you would need only a couple of courses to put you up to speed with the requirements of the Master's program.
