Hassan’s Answer

In my opinion, you are the only one that can really answer that question since it depends on what subject matter you consider difficult.

I would check https://educatingengineers.com/degrees/aerospace-engineering which has a high-level list of class and https://catalog.utexas.edu/undergraduate/engineering/degrees-and-programs/bs-aerospace-engineering/ has specific classes as well as course descriptions for their degree. This could help you determine if this major is right for you.

Lane’s Answer

Pretty much what Hassan said. It all depends.

In terms of the math, I found aerodynamics to be one of the most difficult. Some of the mathematical concepts are difficult to understand, even if you can do the process. I loved thermodynamics and heat transfer, but a lot of my fellow students found those classes to be most difficult for them, so I think it really depends on several things:
1 - Your aptitude. Some people have a 'knack' for certain topics, while others are better at different topics.
2 - The professor/teacher. This is way more important than most people realize. A bad professor can ruin what would otherwise be an interesting and exciting class/topic. Conversely a good professor can make almost anything interesting (and more importantly, understandable).
3 - How hard you work at it.
4 - The support network at your educational institution. This includes tutoring, your professor's office hours, and never underestimate the value of group study, sometimes your peers can be your best resource.
