My STEM career is an aerospace engineer. An Aerospace engineer is someone that applies scientific and technological principles to research, design, develop, maintain and test the performance of stuff. You would need just an undergraduates degree to become an aerospace engineer. The annual salary for an aerospace engineer is $77,656. Aerospace engineers right now are in high demand and there is a good possibility they still will be in the future.

Colleges (TCU)

My first college is TCU which is located in Fort Worth, TX and I am taking a degree program for aerospace engineering. The size of all four classes is around 35,000. The student to faculty ratio is 13/1. The application requirements are you have to make between a 1650 and 1910 on your SAT and a 25 to 30 on your ACT. 19170 students applied last year at TCU but only 7219 of them made it in. A fact about TCU is that more than half of the student body is out of state. Another is that TCU is one of the best business schools in the country.
