I am into Instrumentation engineering in Ram Rao Adik Institute Of Technology, Nerul (Navi Mumbai). I have great deal of interest in space flight & aeronautics. I want to pursue a career in this field but will instrumentation engineering will come in the way? or I have to do any other course after this to pursue my dreams.
Your Instrumentation Engineering will not come into your way of pursuing a career in Aeronautics/Space Engineering provided you acquire a Master degree in Aeronautical Engineering/Aerospace Engineering after you graduate in Instrumentation. Further, if you complete a Ph. D in the field of Aeronautics/ Space Engineering, then your career can really move on. Most of the jobs in high-tech Aeronautics and Space Engineering are research and
development oriented. You will find work in organizations like ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization), DRDO (Defence Research & Development Organization) in India and NASA in USA.
