I can speak with authority here, as I am no engineer at all.
An “aviation degree” is not a specific thing. But aeronautical engineering, the closest pairing, is easier than electrical engineering.
Engineering is a hard major, requires about 60 hours of work in the college week. Most college kids don’t want to work that hard, or find he math too challenging. You won’t, because you are the kind of kid who is asking this question at this point in you’re life, a time in life when I (a very serious person) had no thoughts for anything except Mary Ann Liberatore, a few beers, and playing shortstop.
That kind of thinking ahead is a good predictor
You can get quite a few types of aviation degrees. Some of the subsets, at Auburn University, near me, are almost like business degrees- airport management, etc. Their pilots and graduates, are excellent. Embry Riddle in FL, has a great reputation as an aviation college.
Here I thought the business of aviation was something like this:
Create a huge pile of cash money, douse it with 100LL (avgas), and light it up.
There is an old joke that if a stockbroker knew in 1903 what would happen to everybody’s money in aviation over the next 100 years… he’d have shot Orville down.
Engineering is a great major, and the engineers among us make the best pilots, I’d say- something good about that stepwise analytical approach.
Though lots of good pilots come to it with no more background than a love of the romance of flight, their discipline a more studied variety, not so natural- like me.
Learning to fly? Oh, it’s a great adventure, learn physics, weather, aerodynamics, mechanics, navigation and maps. I LOVE maps! Then there’s the view out the window- nothing beats it.
Steady application and you’ll get that done, enjoy most of it, with that huge excitement of learning something new.
Flying? Learn it pretty young, it’ll be reflexive. It’s easy, until something breaks.
It’s a lucky thing to be your age, with your head up, paying attention.
