Since 1961, the United States has been leading the charge when it comes to exploring space. Our knowledge of the known universe has grown leaps and bounds since then. NASA was created and expanded and by 1969, we had three men on the moon. Even though we are no longer sending people to the moon, our space program is still going strong and is continuing to grow. Can you imagine being a part of something that is as life changing as learning about the universe? Well now you can! With TSTI’s many classes on space systems and aerospace engineering you can learn everything you will need to join the aerospace field.

Numbers

In 2010, the average salary for a person with an associates degree in aerospace engineering was $58,080 while holding a bachelor’s degree guarantees at least double that salary. In the next 5 years, the aerospace industry is only expected to grow about 5%, which is much slower than other fields. Now is the perfect time to get started with aerospace engineering courses because soon the baby boomer that hold the top positions in the industry will be retiring they will need someone like you to come in and confidently take over.

Location

While TSTI provides you with online courses for you to become familiar with system engineering, being in a great location to start your career is key. California, Texas,Ohio, Washington and Virginia were some of the top states to live in for employment in the aerospace field. Houston and Cape Canaveral are obviously the best places if you want to work for NASA.
