Hi, I’m a student at the Cooper Union. Currently my major is Civil Engineering, but I am switching to Mechanical as soon as I can, with a focus on Aerospace (the school only has MechE, CivE, ChemE, and EE). I am considering going in the Air Force ROTC program at another school. My one fear is that, as the program I would want to do in ROTC would be pilot, my degree won’t be enough for a job as an aerospace engineer after 10 years in the military, as I wouldn’t have totally been in the engineering field for that time. Are these fears unfounded? I’m also a sophomore, what are my options?
