Propulsion Systems

Postby Unchained » Tue Dec 19, 2017 8:39 am UTC

Hi! Im studying Mechanical Engineering (1st year) and i would like to know if there are any Masters in Aerospace/Aeronautical Enginering focused on propulsion systems. Thats my fisrt question.

Second: If i come to USA (im from EU) will i have to face all those visa problems even if i do a PhD there? Is it better to stay at EU?

Thank you in advance! Ignore any mistakes...

Don't know about the first question (I mean, they exist, but I don't know if we have any here). Regarding the second - yes, 100%. There's probably a faster track for employment visas for highly specialized experts or something like that, but you would definitely have to go through immigration. The EU has a huge aerospace industry - why do you want to move to the US with the terrible president and absolutely ridiculous healthcare and scary immigration and convoluted tax code?

Is it though? I'm a bit surprised at that. I have no suggestion, other than to understand there's a whole set of fears involved in living in a foreign place that you don't realize because you're used to your own environment. And the US specifically, for me at least, has a very high emotional cost of living. All I'm saying is if you're part of the EU you might not want to leave it so quickly - you can move to plenty of places to find work, you won't have to deal with US immigration, you won't have to deal with US taxes, you won't have to deal with US healthcare. Specifically the last one is kind of terrifying all on its own. You can definitely have a good life in the US, but I'm not sure why you'd go to that trouble without a really good reason. "Better pay", for me, is not a very good reason - it might be for you.

You might be interested in this program :
https://www.kth.se/en/studies/master/th ... st-1.43038


"The joint master's programme in Turbomachinery Aeromechanical University Training (THRUST) is a cooperation between KTH, Duke University, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and Université de Liège. The programme offers education of high international standard as well as cultural experience from at least two different countries and a double degree from two universities."

I can't vouch for its quality, but the schools involved are respected schools.
