Well, it's official: I won't have any chance at having a life for the next two years :lol:

Dude - I thought you were already in.

Got my letter in 1981, though - it was indeed cause for celebration. Congrats.

I've been in college for several years now - now I'm into the masters degree program. You could say I'm a glutton for punishment...

Ah... Form letter: "**/MS" etc. I saw the first and said, "wha...?"

Cheers!

PS: We still need to work on your pumpkinetics.. :)

And no, I never received a letter for post-grad work in aoe, so double-congrats.

Yeah - the **/MS program is something you can apply for after fall semester of your junior year - it allows you to take MS coursework as your senior electives, and therefore get your MS in only one additional year (rather than two).

So, essentially, ** spring of 2011, MS spring of 2012. Cool.

Then, the sky's the limit. :)

That's the general idea :)

JOOC, how much math are they having you take? I mean, required math courses, not math-related engineering and science. What math courses?

Don't be silly, there's no math in aerospace engineering.

Seriously, congradulations :clap:

Congrats'ulations! We'll see how cool you still think it is a year from now when you're buried under your books. ;)

Congrats. Wanna design planes and rockets, eh?

The required math courses are the same for all engineering here - three semesters of calculus plus one of differential equations and linear algebra. For the masters, you're required to take two additional semesters of math, but it's a bit more open ended. I'm looking at probably taking a course called "Mathematics for Aerospace Engineering Sciences 1" (vector and tensor calculus, ODEs, and an intro to calculus of variations) and probably some sort of data analysis class.

Hopefully I'll still be glad of the decision. I certainly won't have the luxury of an easy senior year though.

Just hope tensors don't stress you out.

I'd think not! But that's what will make it worth it. If it were easy, everyone would be an aerospace engineer, no? :)
