Question
Sir, I am a second year diploma in mechanical engineering student at a polytechnic institute in Papua New Guinea. My question is: would it be possible for me to take up aeronautical engineering (aerodynamics) after having completed my diploma in mechanical engineering? Our course outline in dip. in mech. eng. includes fluid dynamics and also, I scored an A, and three Bsin my higher school (Grade 12) certificate. your opinion/view will be very much appreciated. Thanks

Answer
Rex - I am not sure if you are talking about going to graduate school or starting a career. In either case you can probably go into aero engineering but would have to take classes in aerodynamics and other aircraft related subjects. The best answer would be obtained from the school or employer that is available to you. Good luck.
