It is fascinating to see the machines that help make our world go round – like airplanes, spacecraft’s, missiles, and satelliteswhich are a direct result of the ingenuity and brilliant minds of aerospace engineers. Aerospace engineering, the study of air and space flight include designing, testing and assembling of aircrafts and space crafts. Aerospace is the third most popular field among engineering students and the latest trend is the growing popularity among high school students. For youngsters who have interests in sciences and mathematics this may precisely be the opportunity you are looking for!
ANC Education Sri Lanka’s No.1 U.S and Canadian education provider has opened its new branch campus in the city of Kandyoffering popular majors in Aerospace Engineering. The ANC Kandy branchhas been in operation for over 1 year and has offered high school students who have completed their O/levels and A/levels educational pathways to a world class degree qualification to becomeAeronautical Engineers, Aerospace Engineers and Mechanical Engineers and more.
The Buzz surrounding Aerospace

Mathematics, sciences and computer programming are at the heart of generating innovative, tangible products. If you have ever wondered how a 500 ton Boeing aircraft flies, it is the genius skills of aerospace engineers.
Aerospace engineers are the brain child behind the world’s greatest technological innovations in aviation, defense systems, spacecraft’s, rocket launches and NASA’s space programs. Theyhave revolutionized space travel; helped put a man on the moon and the orbiting satellites help us communicate with people all over the world.
Qualifications to Become an Aerospace Engineer?
The minimum entry level qualification to become an Aerospace Engineer is a Bachelor’s degree. Students interested in studying aerospace engineering should take subjects in chemistry, physics, mathematics, and computer programming for their O/L & A/Ls to make the transition easier into the degree program which will consist of subjects like Calculus, Fluid Mechanics, Propulsion, Dynamics and Statics Control, Engineering. Out of the handful of countries that offer aerospace engineering U.S is #1 to offer the best aerospace degree programs in the world.
ANC Education offers the 2+2 American University Transfer Program that have placed hundreds of students majoring in aerospace engineering into exceptionally good and well recognized universities. Students in Kandy now have the opportunity to study popular fields and majors at the ANC Kandy branch campus that offer the same higher education programs.
