    Hey everyone,

    I am currently a second year Aeronautical Engineering Student studying at Loughborough University. I would really like to move to the US, preferably California, after completing my university degree. It would be a dream for me to work at one of the main Aerospace firms in America - i.e. NASA, Boeing, Lockheed Martin or Northrop Grumman.

    What is the best route for me to follow in order to pursue this ambition? Would it be better for me to complete the BEng course which I am doing and then do an additional Masters degree, or would it be better to transfer to the MEng course, if the opportunity is provided? (I heard that MEng is less valued in America). Also, would it be advisable to first start working in the UK, and then move to America after a few years of experience in industry? Would I be required to sit any additional exam to practice Engineering in America, as I am aware that British Medical students have to take the USMLE exam if they wish to immigrate and a become doctors in the US. Would I be put at any advantage if I were to do a PHD?

    I would really appreciate any advice which is given!

    Many thanks!
