I'd like to be an aerospace engineer. However, I'm not sure if I want to work for the government (NASA) or a private company (like Virgin Galatic). One of my dreams is to explore the moons of the Jovian system, which I think NASA would be better suited for, but I'm worried that budget cuts would make that impossible by the time I'm in the job market.
Context: As a sophmore, I've already taken Introductory Phsyics, Introductory Calculus, and AP Chemistry. Next year I plan to take AP Physics and AP Calculus, and as a senior I will take Introductory Biology (as is required by my school), Multivariable Calculus and Linear Algebra, and perhaps science electives such as Organic and Nuclear Chemistry or Quantam Mechanics, schedule permitting.
I'd like to find a college that offers both Aerospace Engineering and Classics majors, but that's been hard to find, so instead I've been looking for colleges with Classics and Mechanical or Electrical Engineering. (I'm not sure which would better prepare me for graduate work in Aerospace Engineering.)
During college, I'll continue to take as many advanced STEM classes as I can, while still keeping up with my humanities work. I'd also like to find some sort of summer internship or work related to the field.
After college, I'll persue graduate education. (Having a Ph.D has always appealed to me, but I'm not sure if it's necessary.) This is where my plan stops- I have very limited knowlege on how to actualy get a job, and advice would be much appreciated.
