Aerospace Engineering for International Students

Aerospace engineers primarily:

  • design aircrafts,
  • spacecrafts,
  • satellites,
  • and missiles.
  • In addition, they test prototypes to make sure that they function according to design.
  • This is an exciting field and it’s easy to see why a lot of international students on an F1 visa or J1 visa would choose to study this field.

  • Hello Nathan,
    Thanks a lot for writing this blog as requested. I’m glad to know about the various opportunities for aerospace engineers from foreign countries.

    I was wondering if you’d do a write-up on aerospace companies which actually hires international students, since most firms require security clearances.

    Thanks again for the blog! It is very much appreciated! 🙂

  • Hello there,
    I am currently in the final year of electrical engineering. I want to do masters in aerospace engineering. Which are the prospective colleges for me? (GRE-311, TOEFL – 103). What would be the difference for me, academically, because of change in field?

    Hoping for a valuable response,
    Thank You.

  • Hello Nathan ,
    What you wrote is really helpful for me but my question is international students in aerospace industry can’t be hired by aerospace companies until they have p.r or citizenship. I really want to study aerospace. What should I do?
