FAQS

What is aerospace engineering?

One of the most challenging areas of engineering, Aerospace Engineering deals with the development of new technology in the field of aviation, space and defense systems. Aerospace Engineering involves design and manufacturing of hi-tech systems, hence the engineer requires possessing manual, technical and mechanical ability. This discipline specializes in designing, construction, development, testing and maintenance of commercial and military aircrafts and spacecrafts. Aerospace Engineering is categorized into two branches – Aeronautical Engineering and Astronautical Engineering.

What is an Aerospace Engineer?

An aerospace (or aeronautical) engineer, is someone who designs aircraft, spacecraft, satellites, missiles, and systems for national defense. In addition, they test prototypes to make sure they function according to design. They are employed primarily in analysis and design, manufacturing, industries that perform research and development, and the federal government

What is the difference between Aeronautical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering?

The two types of aerospace engineers include aeronautical engineers (They work with aircraft that stay within the earth's atmosphere such as airplanes and helicopters.) and astronautical engineers (They work with aircraft that operate outside of the earth's atmosphere such as rockets, satellites, and other and spacecraft.) A degree in aerospace engineering should cover them both.

How to Become an Aerospace Engineer?

Entry-level aerospace engineers usually need a bachelor's degree. High school students interested in studying aerospace engineering should take courses in chemistry, physics, and mathematics, including algebra, trigonometry, and calculus. Bachelor degree programs are designed to take four years and include classroom, laboratory, and field studies in subjects such as general engineering principles, propulsion, stability and control, structures, mechanics, and aerodynamics (which is the study of how air interacts with moving objects).
