Question on studying aeronautics.

I live in Accra, Ghana and need a school for my adopted son to study aeronautic engineering. Any help?

RE: Question on studying aeronautics.

I'm not in that field. It takes knowledge, credentials and experience to get anywhere in any engineering area.

You may find some useful knowledge here.

Start with language; your son will study in what language? English, Deutsch, Francais?

Hi, if your son will study in english (Much to the chagrain of the French, it is still the main language of engineers!!) and in England, and if he doesn't already have enough qualifications to apply directly to a company or university.

Britain has many fine universities with aeronautical programs.  Engineering also requires much more writing than many people believe;  depending on the subspeciality, your son could easily spend 75% of his work time writing various documents.

Fluency in written English is crucial.  Fluency in spoken English is also important;  engineering is a collaborative activity.  Good mathematics skills are useful.  Good study habits are critical.

South Africa will offer a world class engineering education with much lower cost of living.
