These vehicles range from helicopters and other vertical takeoff aircraft at the low-speed end of the flight spectrum, to spacecraft traveling at thousands of miles per hour during launch, orbit, transplanetary flight, or reentry, at the high-speed end.
In between, there are general aviation and commercial transport aircraft flying at speeds well below and close to the speed of sound, and supersonic transports, fighters, and missiles. Although each speed regime and each vehicle poses its special problems, all aerospace vehicles can be addressed by a common set of technical specialties or disciplines.

Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students.
