Ok, I’m a Norwegian with one year left of my 3-year bachelor degree in engineering, space technology. It’s mostly an electronics course, not aeronautics, as you probably will connect space tech with.
Next year I’m planning to go to an American or Canadian school to complete a masters degree in 2 years. The problem is, I know nothing about the schools over there. So that’s why I’m hoping you could recommend some to me.
I would prefer a school that doesn’t cost more than $7,500 a year. But I fear that’s not very realistic. So with a little extra loan and a grant (that I will get only if I take the loan) I will be able to afford up to $21,000. Of course, if I’m very very lucky and get a Fulbright grant I can afford an even more expensive school. But I’m not really counting on that.
As I understand it, schools in Canada are cheaper. And it’s a safer country too. So do you think I should go for Canada?
I looked up rankings for Aerospace/Astronautics schools in the US. Looks pretty expensive.
Georgia Tech: $15,400
*Michigan Uni: $27,376
Purdue Uni: $18,152
Texas Uni: $6,732
Illinois Uni: $18,412
Maryland Uni: $10,836
Penn State Uni: $19,914
California Uni: $18,807
Colorado Uni: $21,409
The ones marked with * I can’t afford. All are public except the first 2. I don’t know if there’s much of a difference, except that most public schools seems to be cheaper. Except University of Michigan.
