Hi everyone, I'm a high schooler planning on going into NRTOC, and I'm looking for some guidance regarding aerospace engineering in the Navy. I'd like to go into aviation after college, preferably as a pilot, or as an Aerospace engineer. The obvious thing to do would be to get a bachelor's in aerospace while doing NROTC, but I'm considering other possibilities. First off, if I were to graduate college and become an Aerospace engineer sometime after that, would I need a master's to do that? If so, could I get some other related degree, such as mechanical engineering, and then go back to school while in the Navy to get a master's in aerospace? Secondly, if I were able to get a master's in aerospace engineering in five years, would I be able to do that while in NROTC? Here are some of the schools I'm considering which each have different benefits and opportunities: •Cornell is a school I'd love to go to, but it doesn't offer a bachelor's in aerospace engineering •University of Maryland offers a 5 year program to obtain a master's in aerospace engineering •Virgina Tech offers a dual major program in aerospace and ocean engineering So really my main question is: If I want to become an aerospace engineer, how important is it that I get a bachelor's in aerospace instead of a related field?
