Hello, currently I turned down the much pricier private university that had a great aviation program to go to a public university that offers a aerospace engineering bachelors degree. I just wanted to know from a pilot in a major airline, what type of degree are employers looking for? Are aviation degrees necessary or will an aerospace Engineering degree give me the same advantage?
A 4yr degree from an accredited university in Art Appreciation will serve you as well as an Aviation or any other degree when it comes to getting hired by a Major. They want the degree and care little about the field of study.
I am with Adam on this one. The degree major really does not matter, just that you get a four year degree.
