By Tony Martin Aerospace Engineering What type of work do people in this career perform? Aerospace engineers manufacture machines such as supersonic jets, helicopters, space shuttles, satellites, rockets, and many more like those. In simpler form they work in aerospace. Where do people in this career work? Aerospace engineers work in for example NASA's many large buildings so that there is room for such large machines, and other aerospace equipment used for testing and many other things. What is the current salary range of this occupation? $53,000 - $134,000 a year (This is NASA's salary range) What are the working conditions? Inside/Outside? Office/Plant/Lab? For an aerospace engineer the working conditions can vary. Aerospace engineers What are the working conditions? Inside/Outside? Office/Plant/Lab? For an aerospace engineer the working conditions can vary. Aerospace engineers typically work inside designing and testing parts for new and improved machines, but when it comes to testing they could bring the machine outside. I would say most aerospace engineers work in laboratories. What are the major job responsibilities? Aerospace engineers are responsible for the research, design and production of aircraft, spacecraft, aerospace equipment, satellites and missiles. Is there a demand for this job in the future? Yes. Currently, there are several aircraft and associated programs in the US. Also, NASA remains a large organization. However, it looks likely that the defense budget will continue to be under pressure, and the already diminishing market for aerospace engineering will continue to shrink. If you have an interest in aerospace-engineering, be advised to get as much info as possible regarding anticipated employment trends. What kind of education is needed for this type of work? The road to becoming an aerospace engineer ideally starts in high school. Potential engineers should focus on advanced math classes such as trigonometry and calculus. After high school, the candidate must obtain a bachelor's degree in engineering. If the college or university offers coursework specific to aerospace engineering, the student should enroll and take those classes. Aerospace engineers who want to be on the cutting edge of the industry must go further in their education by earning a graduate degree. Additionally, some states require engineers to be licensed. What high school courses are recommended if you were to pursue this career? AP calculus and physics in high school. In college, just get into an aerospace engineering program and follow the college curriculum. Aerospace engineer at work 4 fun facts about aerospace engineering - Aerospace engineering is the branch of engineering behind the design, construction and science of aircraft and spacecraftFull transcript
- The energy released by the three Space Shuttle main engines is equivalent to the output of 23 Hoover Dams.
- Participate in flight test programs to measure take-off distances, rate of climb, stall speeds, manoeuvrability and landing capacities
- Amphibian aircraft land on both land and water Describe an invention or innovation related to this field. Charge-coupled devices (CCDs) possess the ability to "digitize" light into data. In other words, they offer an easier way to convert light energy (from photons) into digital images than other imaging methods. What would be the best part of a job in this field? Many people will claim that aerospace engineering is difficult but really fun! I also believe that it would be very fun but the best part? That would definitely be the pay! $$$ What would be the worst part of a job in this field? Even though you can make $ and it is fun, it requires a lot of hard work, which nobody likes. What impact do you think engineers will have on your future? Conclusion I think engineers are very intelligent and will have a positive impact on our near future, because of the technology and what they will discover. Do you think you’d be interested in pursuing a career in engineering? Why or why not? Yes, because reading through all of this Conclusion
