University course titles? [Solved]
You can ask any question (Industry, Lessons, Analysis etc..) to aerospace engineers.
I am currently looking into finding a course I can take that will teach me all about what you know; however, the closest courses I can find are titled, ‘Mechanical Engineering’. I know this is at least related to the field, but will it give me the ability to design a rocket by myself if I wanted to?
To design a rocket you need to know:
-Thermodynamics (You can learn in mechanical engineering courses as well)
-Rocket Propulsion systems (This is an advanced course taught in masters but you can do it with just “propulsion” too) ( You will not easily find in mechanical engineering courses but aerospace)
-Structural Analysis (You can have this in mechanical engineering)
-Aerodynamics (You may find fluid dynamics in mechanical engineering but you will need to study rocket aerodynamics which can be found in aerospace engineering courses)
It is a challenging thing to design a rocket. You can start working with small ones and try to find resources on internet. For example we have good and free courses on our aerodynamics section : Aerodynamics Courses
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask us. Maybe we can even prepare a rocket design course in future if demanded.
