Aero Engineering

<p>Hi,</p>

<p>I'm a newb here and was looking for some adice. I am looking into starting grad school in an aero engineering program next year. I am finishing my BS in Science (Prof Aeronautics) from ERAU. I'm trying to shift towards the engineering side and wanted to see if there was any advice available out there? Is there major differences in the aero industry from obtaining a MSE, MSAEE, or MSME? </p>

<p>I reside in Philadelphia and have looked into Purdues online program. If I went the campus route it would have to be local because of my job. I also see that Villanova and Drexel have engineering programs just don't know if they are aero specific. Any other good schools for my area in this case? I'd preferably like a school that doesn't require the GRE test. </p>

<p>Thanks in advance for any information that I can get......</p>

<p>I don't know what "BS in Science (Prof Aeronautics)" means so keep that in mind. The difference in "MSE, MSAEE, or MSME" is primarily nomenclature as far as the degree itself goes. For all intents and purposes, there is no difference other than the field it is in. Now, the difference between ME and AE in the aerospace community depends on what jobs you are looking for. I really can't tell you what you are looking for so you have to figure out what you want to do and plan accordingly. Some jobs will prefer ME, some will prefer AE and some won't care.</p>

<p>Honestly, if you don't want to take the GRE and just want what sounds like a professional, coursework-only MS, then why not go get a job first and let them pay for it? Otherwise it is going to be crazy expensive for you. Otherwise, if you don't want to pay out the butt for the degree and want to do it full-time, you aren't going to find any decent programs that don't require the GRE unless you went to undergrad at the same institution.</p>

<p>Sorry about that. My undergrad degree will be a Bachelors of Science in Professional Aeronautics. Basically, I should have chosen an Engineering major instead. I am a pilot and want to transition into the Aero Engineering world. Thanks you the information you provided.</p>
