Transcript of Aerospace Engineering
some aerospace engineers work on projects related to national defense, thus requiring security clearances. these restrictions help keep jobs in the united states.
engineering as a whole is only projected to go up 11% between 2010-2020.
Nature of Work
Prospects for Advancements
Long Range Outlook
Potential for happiness
Work Could involve a lot of things from airplanes and rockets to golf balls and submarines.
They can work for the military, Defense industry, Communication Industry, Aerospace industry,Federal Government, or a Space agency.
Teamwork is essential to be an aerospace engineers.
They also have work time where they are alone e.g. designing parts and such.
You are not normally supervised but there is someone who can always answer your questions if the arise.
-University (University of Minnesota, Iowa State, Arizona State University, California State University, Long Beach.)
-Can take anywhere from 4 to 6 years depending on internship and co-ops.
-Internships and co-ops are essential for job experience before you even leave college.
average starting salary is 56,000 -67,000
most people have masters after 10 years and can be making from 91,000-144,000
-40 hours a week
-Can be challenging, difficult to figure things out.
-Both outside and inside.
-Can be office or home.
-Noisy at times and quiet at times.
What it takes to move up in engineering is the same for most jobs you could.
You could just have experience
You could get more schooling
What else could you do with a aerospace degree.
Most of the other engineering fields
any of the sciences
you could be a pilot
Air traffic control
-Employment in Minnesota is 130-240 people.
-Highest state for employment are Florida, Texas, Ohio, Virginia, California, and Washington. All with 3,30-19,990.
people who love airplanes or rockets would absolutely love this job
you can do what you love
don't just sit in a cubical
work could involve a lot of things from airplanes and rockets, to submarines or golf balls
they could work for the military, defense industry, communication industry, aerospace industry, federal government, space agency
teamwork is essential for an aerospace engineer they are constantly working as a team
you also work alone some designing parts and such
you are not supervised most of the time but you have someone to answer questions if help is needed
By Andy, Brandon, Roberta
With Paul Soderman
What do you do on a normal day?
A normal day involved examination of scientific literature, planning experiments, writing code for data analysis, analyzing experimental results, meeting with my peers, requesting support from management, writing reports, etc. I traveled 4 to 6 times a year to various laboratories or scientific conferences.
What is the quality of work like?
The quality of work was high. The pay was good, not exceptional, but government employees have good benefits such as excellent vacation time, sick leave and pensions. Hours were good, we had the option of working 9 nine hour days and getting a three-day weekend every other weekend. Job locations in aerospace are limited by the few number of organizations in the field, but jobs do exist all over the country.
Is it ever boring?
Research is never boring, not counting the occasional meetings on team morale or time efficiency that we had to attend.
Who do you work with the most?
I often worked with engineers with different expertise such as electronics engineers, mechanical designers, software programmers, system control engineers, etc.
