  • Srijani, Durgapur,West Bengal,India asked Nicolette Yovanof, The Boeing Company

    Added Friday, May 22, 2015 at 2:36 AM

    I am a class 12th student from India. I want to study aerospace engineering but I am confused really with my job scopes from here. Moreover I want to become an engineer or a scientist at NASA but I don't know how to pave the way for it. Due to very few colleges in India having this branch of engineering I am thinking whether it would be wise to study aerospace engineering or would it be better to study aeronautical engineering? I would like to have a reply at the earliest. Thank You.

    Hi I recently graduated from the University of Houston with a master's degree in mechanical engineering. I have been interested in the aerospace industry since my bachelors, and I applied to many companies including Boeing here in U.S. But, most of them need clearance which I am not eligible for because I am an international. I don't want to give up pursuing my career in the aerospace industry as that's my passion. Can you suggest me something on companies which are willing to hire ...

    I am a high school student (a soon to be sophomore) and i wanted to know what classes i should takeand clubs i could benefit from. Also, I would like to know if taking pre-calculus and robotics now will help me or hurt me since i still need to take three more years of math. I have been getting so many different answers from teachers and i don't know what to do. What should i do to get the most benefit for my future in aerospace engineering?

    Hi Cynthia, I think that taking any pre-calculus and robotics classes that are available to you would be great preparation for college!  Any math, physics, science/engineering courses at your school would be a great way to get some experience and ...

    I have always wanted to be a pilot as a kid, but now, as a senior in high school, I want to be an aerospace engineer. What I wanted to know is: Is aerospace engineering a successful major? Should I stop at a B.S in aerospace if I want to build and design aircraft for a good company and earn a nice salary for a living? Do you think the aerospace engineering field is growing and requiring more jobs or is it deflating and getting smaller based on jobs? Thanks!

    Hey Nicolette, I am currently an 11th grader wanting to major in Aeronautical Engineering later on in my masters, with a Mechanical Engineering degree for the Bachelors. But apparently, I don't excel in my math and physics classes, but I've always had a tremendous interest in how planes work, etc. I like to figure out ways to solve a problem practically, but maths and physics have never been my forte. Do you think I should give up on my engineering dream? Best regards, Yarra

    Hey Nicolette, I just graduated from Embry Riddle with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering in December. I started my M.S. in Engineering Management at Mercer University this past January. It seems like you might have my dream job actually. My main obstacle right now is obtaining an internship. I unfortunately didn't have one throughout my undergrad career. I really want some hands on experience in the aerospace industry as soon as possible. I've applied online to many many companies, but I ...
