How would a Mechanical engineering undergraduate go about pursuing an Engineering career with the goal of working on rockets/spacecraft?
I'm a sophomore in college who wants to work on rockets/spacecraft, my school does not offer Aerospace Engineering. I know that ME is the same as AE (in undergrad) but what's the best course of attack? Trying to find a job after undergrad or getting a Master's in AE to help? Any advice would be helping, thank you
To answer this question based on my experience, I am at my third job after college and all were Aerospace and current job is space technology working on rocket engines. Because space technology is accelerating so fast and we’re just beginning knowing about it, there’s a job for every Engineer so just do mechanical or electrical and start applying in your 4th year in college and don’t worry too much about getting a job, just worry about what skills you’ll showcase at your first interview.
With mechanical engineering degree you’ve almost unlimited options. A few field you can end up is,
Control system design
