Aerospace engineers design, develop, and test aircraft, missiles, and space vehicles and oversee their production. They often specialize in one kind of vehicle, such as passenger planes, helicopters, or rockets. Most of the aerospace engineers work in the aircraft industry. The aircraft industry works with engines, communication systems and electronics.
Maintain records of performance reports for future use. They write technical reports and other documents for the use of the engineering staff, management, and customers. Plan and coordinate activities concerned with investigation and resolving costumers reports Analyze project and engineering data to determine predictability, cost, and production time of aerospace.
To become an aerospace engineer you need to go college. Some colleges offer a specific aerospace degree, while others have only a basic aerospace degree available. Several of the fields of science that you will need to be familiar with are: Physics, chemistry, computer science, materials science. You also need to be good at math.
The median amount made per year is $70,400—this total amount is averaged from a beginning aerospace engineer to an experienced professional. Aerospace engineer is ranked 32 for the top 50 paying jobs in America, and the average engineered makes $60,000 to $80,000, so an aerospace engineer is in the higher end of the middle. The approximate maximum salary is around $150,000.
WordNet from Princeton University defines aerospace engineer as: an engineer of aircraft or space vehicles. Encyclopedia Britannica says that an aerospace engineer is: the field of engineering concerned with the design, development, construction, testing, and operation of vehicles operating in the Earth’s atmosphere or in outer space.
Aerospace engineers are expected to have a 10% growth in the next year. There are currently about 90,000 aerospace engineers and numbers have steadily been increasing Based from the information above, in 2010-2011 there will be approximately 9,000 more engineers, resulting in a total of 99,000 aerospace engineers
This career does not appeal to me because I am not interested in what lies beyond the sky and off this Earth. Also, I do not enjoy fixing things, and a lot of an aerospace engineer’s job trial and error—meaning that they spend a lot of time testing things, and altering them to work better. This career does appeal to me because I think it would be cool to go out in space and explore.
