    What is the difference between aerospace and aeronautical engineering as most universities have only one or the other. Is aerospace the more advanced version of aeronautical?

    I saw this question asked on a different forum and the answer given was "Aeronautical Engineering focuses more on constructing skeletons of the airplanes. Aerospace involves studying spacecrafts; though it depends on the course structure of the university you're willing to get in."

    In practice, nothing, they're just names. Some Aerospace degrees might include more space related content but you can find aeronautical degrees which have it too, so it's not really a rule.

    The main focus for both will be aeronautics and topics useful for aeronautics by a large margin, likely 90% if not more.

    Speaking to admissions tutors there is very little difference between the two, it basically depends on what the course leader decides
