I'm a sophomore at Saint Louis University, which is one of the best schools for aerospace engineering jn the country and also GREAT for meteorology. I'm talking about which cities in the Midwest are the best for making a living at doing aerospace engineering and meteorology. Chicago and St. Louis are the only two cities I know of which are good for making a living doing aerospace engineering but I'm hoping to see if there are other cities in the Midwest which are good for doing this as well. How about this: which Midwestern cities would you say are most appropriate for aerospace engineers and/or meteorologists to work in. Are there other good cities in the Midwest for aerospace people to work besides Chicago (where Boeing is headquartered) and St. Louis (where Boeing now owns which was once McDonnell Douglas)? I guess meteorologists could be appropriate anywhere, just wondering which areas of the Midwest would be the most interesting places for meteorologists to work and basically have the highest demand for meteorologists.

That is a good question. I would think the bigger metro areas that you mentioned would have more jobs in aerospace engineering. Maybe another poster would have more detailed information regarding what other metro areas are good for areospace engineers.

I know about Denver, and I also know that Boulder is HUGE for meteorologists....I love the city but my hope is to see if I can work someplace closer to home. Denver is a bit too far away for me.

Do you know of good cities in the Midwest for meteorologists, Plains? Just wondering if you might know since you mentioned going to school for meteorology...sounds like the Chicago is good for that too since Valparaiso is basically part of the Chicago MSA. just guessing that you might know the big places in the country for meteorology and how the Midwest would stack up for it. The only one I know of is Boulder, Colorado and I'm hoping that should I decide to change my major to meteorology in the next year to find a place that isn't quite as far away from St. Louis as Denver.

Some places that are good for meteorology: (Regional and Beyond)
Penn State University
University of Colorado Boulder
University of Oklahoma Norman
Valparaiso University
Kansas University
University of North Carolina Asheville

The National Weather Service Offices tend to higher college graduates as well. Their are many National Weather Service Offices scattered all over the country.
Many meteorology majors also major in Journalism if they want a career in on-camera forecasting.
Other options are working for governmental agencies with your meteorology degree.
Their are MANY opitions open for those who get the Meteorology degree.

Thanks for this info Plains...sounds like I at least found the right person with which to talk meteorology. i will definitely try and remember your info if i decide to choose meteorology over the aerospace industry. Keep the responses coming people.....not only for my sake of finding out more locations in the Midwest appropriate for the two areas I'm trying to decide on choosing for my definite major in college, but also just to voice your opinion on the original question asked for the topic of this thread
