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.

What is something that you've learned as a engineer that you didn't learn in school?

Hi! I am Abigail, and a high school sophomore. I am looking into colleges that I can apply to, to major in engineering, because I think that is what I would like to be in the future. Although school teaches you a lot, there are some things best learned through experience. I'm wondering what are...

I am currently enrolled in Georgia Tech starting this fall, but I am a Global Economics major. Will my major limit my options because I chose to go to a technical school? Can I still have the opportunities an engineering student would have there?

I am currently enrolled in Georgia Tech and will start as a freshman this Fall. Despite Georgia Tech being a technical school, I am interested in Global Economics. Georgia Tech is a very high ranked school and has a variety of science majors but I am afraid my options can be limited because of...

Biomedical engineering and Pre-med

How difficult would it be to attempt to get into the Premed system at a college while also striving for a bachelors in bio medical engineering? Would it help my chances? #doctor #engineering #medical-school #biomedical...
