    I wish to do my B.Tech in Aerospace /Aeronautical Engineering from SRM U, Chennai. My apprehension is a bit manifold: 1) I am a girl, and will that hamper my progress as an aeronautical engineer? 2) The scope for AE in India seems limited, considering the global recession in the field. The pay also seems lesser in comparison to other B.Tech passouts. (IT, Mech. Biotech. etc). 4) I understand that Indians (non Americans) have lesser chance of getting lucratrive jobs with Boeing, Lockheed, ...

    Hello, I am a woman inventor, rather than an engineer, but was hoping for some advice..I had an engineer working on drawing up plans for a tech idea. He said the concept was good and possible to make it how I envision it, but I rarely get a response from him, and he doesn't seem to be working on it at all. I've already missed several opportunities to meet with a possible investor to help make the idea a reality because I did not want to approach without at least plans drawn up to show. I need ...

    Dear Ms. Seetha Raghavan, I am in a debate of whether or not to became a mechanical or aerospace engineer. As time passes by I feel that my heart goes for aerospace because one day, I would like to be a part of creating space shuttles or satellites... Anything space related! Yet my dilemma is that I know MechE's could do this as well, as they can also work not only in the aerospace industry, but in many other areas as well. I feel that after I graduate college, I will have a much more ...
