Aerospace Engineering is one of the most challenging areas in the Aviation industry and in the field of Engineering. It deals with the development of new technology in the field of Aviation, space, and defense system. Aerospace Engineering involves the designing and manufacturing of high-tech systems. Hence the engineers require processing manual, technical and mechanical ability.


Aerospace Engineering is categorized into 2 parts, ie. Aeronautical Engineering and Astronautical Engineering. Further details about the same can be found below:

  • Aeronautical engineering is a specialization in aircraft, missiles, and helicopters.
  • Astronautical engineering includes space shuttles, rockets, and space stations.


Job Profiles:- 

Aerospace engineers are generally appointed in many known job profiles. Some of the designations are given below:-

  • Design Engineers
  • Mechanical Engineers
  • Aerospace Technologist
  • Aircraft Production Manager
  • Assistant Technical officers
  • Aerospace Design Checker
  • Graduate Engineer Trainees
  • Higher education lecturer

Aerospace Engineers can work in both Government and Private companies. The degree holders are acquired by many big firms both in India and Abroad. 


Some of the above Job profiles have been explained in detail below:

  • Design Engineers

    Design engineers are those engineers who deal with the designing, development, and management of aircraft. They should have the technical, mathematical, and design skills to create innovative solutions to problems.

  • Mechanical Engineers

    These engineers deal with the parts of the aircraft. Mechanical engineers design and research these potential advances, whether they are large jet engines or tiny sensors, to develop new and better aerospace technologies for current and future needs.

  • Aerospace technologist

    Technicians are the hands-on members of an Aerospace team that may install, maintain, test, and repair the equipment that is being used in the field or developed for use.

  • Aircraft Production Manager

    Aircraft Production Management is highly skilled in supervising and coordinating efficient aircraft lines. They understand the requirements of regulating airworthiness and the manufacturing process. They excel in advocating, demonstrating, negotiating, and advising others to get the work done.

  • Higher Education Lecturer

    The Higher Education Lecturers are the experts in the specialized subjects. The lecturers pursue their own knowledge to the students or universities and institutions.


Job Opportunities:- 

As an aerospace engineer, it is of utmost crucial besides one’s interest whether she/ she would be interested in Aeronautical Engineering or Astronautical Engineering. Both branches have excellent job opportunities.

The job opportunities in this are available in the following fields:

  • Airlines
  • Airforce
  • Corporate Research Companies
  • Defence Minister
