My DS19 is very interested in a career supporting space exploration and/or operations. Although he loves math and science, he probably does not have the grades to be successful in an engineering program. I am trying to help him choose a major that might eventually land him in a job supporting the commercial space industry (space exploration and spaceflight operations). I would guess that this industry is 95% engineers, but there must be non-engineers in important roles as well. He is considering Meteorology, Astronomy, Astrophysics, Geography, etc.
Anyone out there with personal experience in commercial space programs? Any thoughts on different majors that would be appropriate? Thx
