Nothing is eternal

Most of us are fascinated by the birds, because of their ability to fly. Roaming amidst the fluffy clouds, watching the sky getting faded with the serene sun rays is mesmerizing. Some of us get so much obsessed with this desire that they soon turn their desire into their career. In other words, Aerospace Engineering.

In simple words, aerospace engineering is the branch of science dealing with the development of the aircraft and the spaceships. Aerospace Engineering has two sub-branches which are:

  • Aeronautical Engineering.

  • Astronautical Engineering.

If you have a degree in Aerospace Engineering, then you have access to several opportunities, some of which are mentioned below.

  • Mechanical engineer: The flying machines need to be upgraded from time to time, to increase their work efficiency. A mechanical engineer, through his/her knowledge and research work, does the same. The Mechanical Engineer performs research on a wide array of equipment starting from microsensors to massive jet engines.

  • Designer: If you have a degree in Aerospace Engineering, then you can opt for aircraft and spaceships designing.  From the interiors to the exteriors, the steps aimed at upgrading the safety of the aircraft and spaceships, and to improve the efficiency, all these involves being an Aerospace Designer.

  • Data Processing analyst: As more advances were made in the fields of technology, most of the research work shifted from real simulations to virtual simulations using high-end computers. The Data Processing Manager must collect the necessary data required for the simulation and then calculate the errors and take the steps needed to eliminate the same. 

  • Military aerospace engineer: Another required field for research and development is in the military (air-force wing). We are always in the threat from external as well as internal enemies, and as a result, we need to keep our defense healthy and updated. The Military aerospace engineer must perform research work on military-grade aircraft and vehicles.

  • Aerospace inspector and compliance officer: The aerospace engineer and the compliance officer have to maintain overall safety both on the ground and in the air. They ensure all safety measures and research on ways to improve safety and eliminate any possible errors.

Few other similar jobs are:

  • Drafter: One who performs all the sketching work related to aerospace engineering.

  • Aerospace Technician.

  • Mission Specialist.
