Extra undergraduate courses for aerospace engineering
Hi: I have a bachelors degree in Biology form Clemson University. After I graduated I took a few years off to travel with my husband. I am now on the hunt for my masters degree. I was looking at a masters in aerospace engineering. The university near by has a lot of hands on opportunities with Boeing near by. My question is how well would I far with my back ground? Is there some extra undergraduate courses that I should take to help prepare for my transition?

    Every school has different entry requirements for its graduate programs so it is important that you check with your specific program. You will need at least a minimum of three semesters of calculus and likely a course in linear algebra. You can never take too much math but your school may have refresher courses that would also be valuable. And the GRE will likely be a requirement for entry so it is important to prepare for this as well.
