    Hello, I'm a junior in high school and currently attend engineering classes at my local Career and Technology center. I would like to major in engineering management, which is not a very common field to get a degree in. Would it be better to get an engineering degree in a field such as aerospace then go to graduate school for my management degree or major in engineering management? If anyone received their degree in engineering management; was it easy to find a job with this particular degree?

    Hello. I just finish my freshman year of Aerospace Engineering. I love all related to airplanes, and my dream job is to something combining airplanes with spaceships just as Virgin Galactic is doing. During my freshman year, it was a bit of a struggle keeping up with the classes, and also coming from Venezuela to USA. I've been really good in math and physics. I currently have a 3.72 of CGPA. Sometimes I doubt myself if I can make it, but I'm more concerned about getting an internship, because ...
