    I'm torn between what I want to pursue with further education. I love Anything to do with planes, jet engines, engineering, etc- but also like the science behind computing, and things like simulation, A.I, machine learning (e.g Aerodynamics etc). However- I would like to find a career that combines the two, I prefer the variety and more "hands on" aspect of the Aeronautical industry, but at the same time want to somehow involve computing with that industry to research future technologies in Aeronautics. I know both are growing industries, and both pay well (although that is irrelevant) , but personally believe computer science is going to grow and be more relevant in the future than Aerospace engineering. Any advice?

    Your best bet is to consider a master's degree which combines the two. I've found one at Southampton University that may be of interest to you.

    You could always just do Computer Science and work for an Aerospace company too. Lots of roles accept it.
