School suggestions for computer science / aerospace engineering majors

Hello forums, I’m currently a ninth grader, and I’m trying to build a strong profile of colleges, and I’m trying to figure out where to go next. I would like to find reach, safety, and target schools that have strong computer science and/or aerospace engineering majors. I have a very strong projected coursework rigor (16 Honors, 12+ IB [not entirely sure of HL/SL split or total count]), through my GPA is only a 3.5. I have okay extracurriculars, including a decent bit of game / software development already, and I do plan to go further with it.

I would love to know schools with good computer science and/or aerospace engineering programs, preferably those that are diverse and accepting to LGBTQ+ students.

Thanks in advance!

My son is an aerospace engineering student at UT Austin and loves it. it would be a reach for just about anybody. Purdue is strong in aerospace and a bit less selective. RIT and ASU would be good safety choices in my opinion. For Michigan, I would also look at other in-state schools like Mich State and Mich Tech.

Oh very cool ^^

I don’t know if Texas is specifically a good environment for me, but the others could be good

Not sure if you're referring to climate or not, but Austin is very open and accepting of LGBTQ+

I’m worried of Texas as a whole for a few reason (and the environment is not up my alley)

I would say University of Michigan is a good reach, and they have a pretty good aerospace program.

I already had that on my list, since it’s pretty common for alumni from my high school to go there, and it’s in-state

Thanks for confirming that it might be a good fit for me, though I was wondering about any other suggestions
