You must have a very good understanding of Mathematics And Physics, but that alone is not going to happen because there is nothing 'general' about Rocket Science (that's what Aerospace Engineering is). All courses are mainly focused around Mathematics and Physics with a little Chemistry. However, there is nothing in general about the course of the load as it extends through a great variety of disciplines: Thermodynamics, Propulsion, Materials Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanics, Mathematics, Aerodynamics, Astrodynamics, etc., The applications are variable, as will be seen, despite the fact that, obviously, are focused on the Aerospace industry. Aerospace Engineering is a challenging field, which is considered one of the most difficult types of Engineering. Along with the Electrical Engineering And Engineering Science and Mechanics, is very math and theory intensive. Technically Aerospace Engineering is a specialized area within Mechanical Engineering, focused toward the aircraft or spacecraft. To become an Aerospace Engineer, one must be very analytical and critical-thinking skills because the problems that need to be resolved in this field are very complex. Therefore, colloquially, Aerospace Engineering is what everyone refers to as 'Rocket Science'. Currently I am a student of Aerospace Engineering and the following are the areas that I need to take to get my Degree (before I Master): Math Courses: Linear Algebra Calculus (Differential, Integral and Multi-variable) Vector Geometry Differential Equations computational Methods Operational Methods Experimental Methods Introduction to the Tests of Science Courses: Chemistry (freshman year first semester, general) Physics (Mechanical & Electrical [or Magnetism]) Engineering courses: statics Dynamics Mechanics of Deformable Bodies Materials for Aerospace Engineering Aircraft Performance Astromechanics Vehicle Vibration & Control Thin-walled structures Stability & Control Aerodynamics/Hydrodynamics Compressible Aerodynamics Boundary Layer Theory Aerospace Structures Aircraft.Design of a spaceship I'm pretty sure I missed a few here and there, but the meat of it. I hope you get the idea.
