Aerospace Engineer Educational Requirements

Start your career as an aerospace engineer with a Bachelor’s Degree in engineering. Undergraduate majors should be in astronautical, aeronautical, or aerospace engineering. If the career you would like to have involves dealing with people’s lives or property, you will need to get licensed to do so.

To be a licensed engineer, you must have a minimum of four years experience as an engineer, a degree from an accredited school, and you must be able to pass a state exam. For some jobs as an aerospace engineer, you will have to pass a security and background check.
