My Goal and Why I chose this career path I have always been interested in aircraft and space flight. Designing new and innovative things intrigues me. I find improving existing designs and finding more effective ways to do things is challenging and fun.
Job description Aerospace engineers design, build, and test various aircraft and aircraft parts. They also design, and test space craft and missiles. A typical day includes designing new aircraft or aircraft parts or overseeing the design of new technology. Average salary is $104,000
Skills Needed Important tasks of an engineer is to design new technology and run various tests. They spend most of their time conducting tests on various objects and making improvements. Higher level engineers oversee these tasks being preformed by lower ranking employees.
Working Conditions Most engineers conduct their research within a lab or studio. Occasionally they are able to go out and test full size aircraft systems. Pro’s include; working as a part of a team and conducting research. Con’s include; long work hours, and participating in testing less as you increase job positions. (interview) Future demand is high due to the rapid advancement of technology.
High School Education Suggested classes to take in grades 9 and 10 include; English, mathematics, science, and creative arts. Classes in grades 11 and 12 include; statistics, chemistry, physics, drafting and design, algebra, calculus, astronomy, and computers.
Additional training In order to become an aerospace engineer you must have your bachelor’s degree in engineering. It usually takes four to five years to get your degree. Afterwards, aerospace engineers continue to study new technology and the latest developments
College I wish to go to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. It is the best aerospace engineering university in the world. There are campuses located in Daytona Beach, Florida and Prescott, Arizona. Tuition costs $30,720, and room and board costs $9,340. I want to go there under the U.S. Air Force ROTC program. The program pays for 4 years of tuition and allows you to become an officer in the U.S. Air Force.
