High School

A strong science and mathematics background is essential for entry into this field. High school courses that will be useful in preparing a student for college-level study include algebra, trigonometry, physics, and chemistry. In addition to math and science, courses in social studies, economics, history, blueprint reading, computer-aided design, drafting, and industrial and machine shop practice will provide a valuable background for a career in aerospace technology. Computer science experience is also important. English, speech, and courses in the preparation of test reports and technical writing are extremely helpful to develop communication ability.
