What is Aerospace Engineering/ Rocket Science (fun) Really?
In theory what is it?
Physics applied on a grand scale to blow up things that other engineers put up using physics on a grand scale.
I.E. Aerospace Engineers build weapons.
All other engineers build targets (ME = tanks, CE = Buildings, EE = Power Plants (sub-category of building) CompE = Computer Systems (Who do you really think makes an ICBM fly? Some Physicist? Nah!) Environ E = Clean-up vehicles (think your parking lot will be clean in 20 years? click KABOOM!
Think again…) Materials E = Harder Targets (Bunker Buster…all AE baby!) ChemE = Oil Refineries (C'mon, gotta hit those! They make such wonderful multi-colored explosions!)
What is it used for?
Blowing things (defined above) up.
What does the major actually entail - work-wise?
Convincing the govt to fund your idea for a wonderful weapon that will destroy all other governments…and then hoping you get to spend your billions before they use it and send us all back to the stone age.
What kind of jobs do you get with it?
Rocket Scientist. Pilot. Unemployed Line Place-Holder
(life's the pits when the world is at peace).
What are the fellow students like (personalitywise) in it?
Quiet, friendly, geeky, hard-partying maniacs in love with bigger and better explosions delivered by higher and faster flying planes.
That you need poofy hair to be a rocket scientist.
Although it helps brainwaves travel in your Jetpro tests…
