Emory-Riddle University has an actual major in this field. I'm sure other schools do also. Other aerospace engineering degrees pay a LOT better than being a pilot and you would have to love being a pilot to accept the lower salary. A co-worker of mine was interested in being a pilot. He was a flight instructor with 3000+ hours of seat time. He was making > $75K as a real-time software engineer and couldn't bring himself to drop to about $22K offered to an entry level pilot. Good Luck
