    Hi, I'm student of environmental engineer in Panama City. But I want to get enroll in aerospace engineering, but I have a lot of dudes. Because my dream is to work in Boeing or Air bus, but my question is the mechanical part of aerospace very hard to learn?

    Hello Dominique,
    I think that the most important factor in learning new material is having a positive attitude. If you learn with a positive mind you may discover that although a concept is hard when you first encounter it, you can look at many ...

    I would suggest that any engineering you enjoy is good for girls.  I think of avionic engineering as being electrical engineering specialized to address the problems of aviation and space.  Since the airline industry isn't going away anytime soon and ...

    I'm a high school junior who is conflicted about what engineering to go into. I am currently in an engineering class to see what it's like to get different projects from different fields and so far my favorites have been chemical, aerospace, and mechanical. I was wondering if you could give me some insight about your field of study. What is your normal day like? How was your college experience? Are there any problems or discrimination you have faced? Thank you!

    Hi, I was just wandering what A-levels you have to take to become an astronautical engineer. Also, it is not a very common job so I cannot find very much information about it. So what exactly do you have to do as an astronautical engineer. Is there a good book or magazine about astronautical engineering that could be recommended to me because I would like to develop my interest to find out as much information as possible. Finally, at university, should i take a 4 year course on aerospace ...

    Dear Shanirah,

    Within the field of aerospace engineering in the United States, there is some fluidity in the usage and definition of the terms describing the field; generally the term "aerospace" encompasses all of the aeronautical and ...

    I am a 19 year old girl doing first year electronic engineering in India . I am interested in NASA. Actually, I had to drop this year. I should actually go in second year but since I have got a fail, I am still doing first year electronic. I never expected that anything like this could happen to me, because I am a very sincere student. I have high aims for my life. I want to pursue my carrier in NASA or in companies like Intel, Apple, etc. I am willing to do post graduate work (MS) after a ...

    As an undergraduate, I chose to earn an English degree despite high school teachers encouraging me to become an engineer. I am considering going back to school for engineering a few years after getting my BA. I took a few business courses while in school and enjoyed and excelled at courses like quantitative methods involving problem solving and math. However, I haven't taken chemistry, physics, or calculus since high school, so the prospect of going back to school for such a difficult ...
