Question
I am about to register for a bachelors degree course in computer engineering with bias for software engineering. I have an interest in going for higher studies in aeronautical engineering. I will like to know if this is possible.

Answer
The best information for this type of question can be found by asking university admissions officers or department chairman of the engineering school of your choice. My experience is that you need an engineering degree or a hard science degree such as in physics to do graduate work in aeronautical engineering. Of course you can take undergraduate courses to fill in your academic record, but the amount of work and time involved depends on your undergraduate course of study. Check out a typical U.S. university website such as U. of Washington - Seattle for requirements.

Good luck.
