    Planes and rockets are both a unique part of engineering that have many aspects that are important in design. Aerospace engineers often tackle challenges in the office utilizing data and overseeing operations on daily basis. There have been failures and successes that make this field one of the most rigorous fields. Aerospace engineering can be considered one of the least forgiving forms of engineering, but it is worth the effort and achievements that come with it. There are many different subsections of aerospace engineering. Aerodynamics, propulsion and airframe are just a couple. Aerospace engineers can expect to do a multitude of tasks on a daily basis, testing and sitting at a computer is most of the time. Often there are situations where there is just designing and redesigning things as inconspicuous as a door latch based on data gathered from tests. Occasionally there is time to go and observe the construction of these projects but most of it is making sure everything is in order to construct. Aerospace engineering is rigid because it is important to get right the first time. One of the more dangerous parts of aerospace engineering is…

    participate in the Aerospace Engineering program—for which there is no comparable program at VCU. Thus far, commuting to VCU and taking engineering, mathematics and physics courses related to my intended major(s) of Mechanical Engineering and Physics has been exhilarating, and has helped to solidify my interest in engineering. I have had wonderful experiences at VCU, such as crafting a coil gun and undertaking a University Teaching Assistant position; however, after participating in the Virginia…
