      Yes, I know some electrical engineers who did MS in Aerospace. You can email the grad school coordinators and they will tell you whether you can or cannot and also what undergrad coursework you may have to take to fulfill the requirements. Unlike Indian colleges, US universities have their own set of rules and regulations. So every school will have a different story.

      But please speak to people who have done MS in aerospace before you come here for MS in aerospace. I don’t know if aerospace has good scope relative to mech. Generally after a long struggle MS in aero people either change streams or become control enggs.

    hi…

    i am from india..i completed my BE (Aeronautical Engg)..i would like to do MS in a reputed University in US but some says that International students are not recruited in US companies. is that true?

  4. Adi

    It is possible for anyone in the world to pursue any kind of education in the US. But international students are not sponsored for a job (work permit) by any aerospace companies in the US because of security issues. If you can find yourself an American wife then you can become an astronaut too!
