Aerospace Engineering

Information about Aerospace Engineering Degrees

Aerospace Engineering is a more complicated way of saying ‘rocket science’ and everyone knows that it takes a lot to become a rocket scientist. Building, developing, and testing aircraft and spacecraft is quite challenging. In fact, you could say it’s rocket science!

Aerospace Engineering is split in 2 sub-fields: Aeronautical Engineering (working with aircraft, jets, helicopters, and sometimes submarines) and Astronautical Engineering (designing rockets and spacecraft used in space exploration).

Getting a Master’s or Bachelor’s degree in Aerospace Engineering requires a strong understanding of physics, mathematics, and engineering principles, which are necessary for the research and development students will be conducting after graduation. These exact sciences allow you to better grasp how aircraft and spacecraft can easily move through the air and stay in the air, while improving the results and efficiency of flight tests.

After leaving Engineering school, you can offer advice on function, mechanics and aircraft design. You’ll also have a better understanding of structural design, mechanical integrity, and alternative fuels and environmental challenges that must be considered when developing aircraft and spacecraft.

Since Aerospace Engineering is a subfield of Engineering & Technology, you can find related fields and courses in Robotics, Transportation Engineering, Marine Engineering, Automotive Engineering, and Mechatronics. Students who graduate from Aerospace Engineering programmes go on to find exciting and challenging jobs as maintenance engineers, operation technicians, aircraft developers, or spacecraft developers.
