What kind of math do I need in high school to be an aerospace engineer?

Hello! I am currently a Junior in high school. I'm about to move onto my senior year and I'm concerned about what kind of math and science I need that would help be fulfill being an Aerospace Engineer. I'm also planning on pursuing a career in nursing. So far I've only had classes that will fulfill nursing. I'm also kind of concerned how I can balance both careers in the future. I am passionate about both of them.

So far the only science + math classes I've taken are:

  • freshmen year:
    Biology, Algebra 1
  • Sophmore year:
    Chemistry, Geometry
  • Junior year (current):
    Anatomy and Physiology, Pre-AP Algebra II

    You have interest in two very different fields, both of which have careers in high demand. I recommend taking as many of the subsequent math levels as possible before you graduate. Additionally, I’d recommend taking physics or other general or mechanical engineering course your school may offer, as well as, a computer science class. Those may help you determine which field you like better before you choose a college major.

    Wishing you all the best!
