I want to work at NASA, what is a good roadmap to follow (I’m in 3 VWO)?

You should almost always have American citizenship.That is not so evident in itself.

You must also have at least one bachelor’s degree in one of the following disciplines (or very similar):

  • Aeronautical Engineering
  • Geophysics
  • Aeronautics
  • Industrial Engineering
  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Materials Engineering
  • Astronautical Engineering
  • Materials Science
  • Astronautics
  • Mathematics, Applied or Pure
  • Astronomy
  • Mechanics, Applied or Engineering
  • Astrophysics
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Metallurgical Engineering
  • Ceramic Engineering
  • Metallurgy
  • Ceramics
  • Meteorology
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Nuclear Engineering
  • Chemistry
  • Nuclear Engineering Physics
  • Civil Engineering
  • Oceanography
  • Computer Engineering
  • Optical Engineering
  • Computer Science *
  • Physics
  • Earth and Planetary Science
  • Physics, Applied or Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Space Science
  • Electronics Engineering
  • Structural Engineering
  • Geology
  • Welding Engineering

The chances of success are rather small.If you want to become an astronaut, chances are much smaller.

Have you considered working at the European Space Agency?Then you are no longer with that nationality requirement and you can get closer to home; Maybe even in the Netherlands.

Of course it remains a sector in which a lot of people want to work but there are very few offers, so keep in mind that there is a chance that it will not succeed (immediately).

A good roadmap to follow if you want to become an astronaut at NASA is to first naturalize itself into an American citizen.Because from your comment I understand that you want to become an astronaut. [1

In addition, after your VWO you must have a bachelor’s degree in technology, scientific biology, ICT or mathematics.Furthermore, you must have at least three years of work experience in your field or at least have made 1000 flight hours as a pilot.

Finally, you have to have a good eyesight, but it is now permissible to wear glasses.

I hope this has answered your question.Thank you for asking me this question Ampresus Xilius (ampresus Xilius).

What do you want to do exactly at NASA?

That is quite important.
