Software Development Jobs for Control Systems Aerospace Engineer?

Posted 11 March 2019 - 06:28 PM

What software engineering positions would someone with a Bachelor's in Math, a Minor in Computer Science, and a Master's in Aerospace Engineering typically be competitive for?

Assume that the SE job has nothing to do with Aerospace, the engineer has a couple years of programming experience from a job in Data Analytics, the engineer has done a Software Development Internship during the Master's, and the engineer is specialized in writing computer simulations and unmanned aircraft AI control systems.

How would the skills likely transfer? Would you be likely to reject a job application from this candidate because of their degree?

Zero, one, or many.

So many undefined issues it's hard to tell.
Can said engineer demonstrate critical thinking and thought out development?
Are they willing to learn new methods?
Do they work well in a team?
Do they need much hand holding?

Not out right, no.

Moving to Corner Cubicle.

It might be worthwhile to start looking at job postings, and then try to figure out how to utilize your unique background/skills to contribute to the organization in question. For general software engineering jobs, you will likely have skills that aren't being utilized. If you want something more specialized, then start looking at job postings for such jobs.
