^^Tullamarine is very close to the freeway. I miss that place.
Ancient Persian Proverb; " I Wept because i had no Shoes, until i saw a man with no feet!"

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out --
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out --
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out --
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me -- and there was no one left to speak for me.

Getting a job is a yes you say - Could you please describe what these jobs may be? I'm leaning towards [email protected] now. I like the possibility of having a good chance of getting into the RAAF Pilot program :)

Hey not to hijack but I'm also considering aerospace but with law or commerce, any ideas on what would be better?

Aerospace Law would be 6.5 years of unadulterated pain.

You'd spend longer in your undergrad than you would have at high school and all of the subjects beyond 1st year would be intensely difficult and require a lot of hard work and effort.

If you're game for the challenge, then go for it. :P

As for Aerospace/Comm it's a popular choice and opens many doorways in the job market. THese days a LOT of eng/comm graduates are taken for management fast-tracking programs in companies due to the heightened problem solving skills learnt in an Eng degree.

Firstly, the myth that "omg there are no jobs for aerospace students" must be expunged! There are plenty of jobs for Aerospace graduates, just not in the Aerospace field. It is a little known fact that graduates of Monash University's Aerospace Engineering program walk out of the degree as accredited MECHANICAL engineers as WELL as accredited aerospace engineers. Thus, you can apply for a whole host of jobs in the Mechanical Engineering field - and these jobs are abundant. And, in fact, from what the dean of Engineering was telling me at the scholarship ceremony, Aerospace students are being picked AHEAD of normal mechanical engineering students.

However, if you actually want to work in the Aerospace field, that is a lot harder. The job market is very starved, and you'd be hard pressed to find a job better than "Aircraft Maintenance Engineer" which is apparently quite boring and underpaid. The are a small number of jobs available from Boeing and Airbus in Australia but they are few and far between and competition is FIERCE. If you *really* want to work in the Aerospace field, you will have to consider a move to the USA. If you're like me and want to work on spacecraft... you HAVE to move to the US. So, yeah, hope this has been of help.

Come do it at Monash, we have much better facilities, lecturers and learning environment.

EDIT: Just saw your post about missing Aerospace Engineering at Monash.

Here's what you do. You have 1st preference as Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering and 2nd preference as Bachelor of Engineering. If you miss Aerospace, and get into straight Engineering, you can actually still do Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering from the BEGINNING.

All Monash Engineering degrees share what's called the "common first year" where EVERY stream does the same units as each other first up. You come do the first year of the Bachelor of Engineering, which is EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE FIRST YEAR OF AEROSPACE ENGINEERING (except for one unit, and you can take that as an elective!) and then if you get an average of 65-70 or more, you can just transfer into Aerospace Engineering and go straight into 2nd year :)

Good luck with it.

OR type in 'aerospace engineering' into the search box like i did :)

I heard it's pretty hard to get a 70+ in uni? is this true?

also considering it...
2010: Business Management [47]
2011: English [44]   |   Chemistry [45]  |   Methods [44]   |   Specialist [42]   |   MUEP Chemistry [5.0]   |   ATAR: 99.60
UMAT: 69 | 56 | 82 | = [69 / 98th Percentile]
2012: MBBS I @ Monash

How long is a piece of string? You could turn up and get straight HDs or all Ps. Depends on the person, how they adapt to uni etc.

In general, getting 70+ isn't super hard but it's also certainly not an easy mark if you don't have a reasonable amount of study time
