There are thousands of careers available to students, but how do you narrow down that one career you want to go into? Most students in Aerospace Engineering are already zeroing in on what field of engineering they want to explore after college.

Aerospace Engineering is a course at the Career and Technical Education Center that is offered to juniors and seniors at all Frisco Independent School District high schools.

The course provides insight for what students can expect in the field.  

“The benefit is two folds. It’s going to be academic for one. Preparation for college, knowledge, and exposure,” Aerospace Engineering teacher John Horwedel said.  

Students think that by taking Aerospace Engineering now, they are getting ahead of the competition that will be present in their colleges and career fields.

“Hopefully I get to learn like a lot of stuff that could help me in college, so I don’t really need to first start learning it in college, and I already have like a head start,” senior Jared Schurig said.

“I’m helping improve my chances right now by being in a high school level course already that is in engineering, when others they don’t really know exactly how it works because they don’t get this opportunity,” senior Emma Lee said.

“Although it’s not an AP class it still gives me that experience and that credit for college. So I can pursue aerospace in college and then eventually go into my career,” senior Sasi Thomala said.

Aerospace also feeds into many different areas.

“I think that some students will, you know, decide to go an academic route, some will decide to become an engineer of some type, some actually join the military and become aircraft mechanics, some become pilots. And I can see, you know, my students starting to move in all those different directions,” Horwedel said.

Students are already considering how they can apply what they learn from Mr. Horwedel in the aerospace industry.

“I’m going to apply it as being an engineer and being one who helps design and…make planes and flight more reliable and in advancing that technology,” Lee said.
