Transcript of Aerospace Engineering
Aerospace engineers generally work inside in a building but once in a while they may take trips to a field or an assembly building.
What is aerospace engineering?
To be an aerospace engineer you have to have a Bachelor's degree in aerospace engineering or another type of engineering or science related to aerospace systems.
A program accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) may be required to later earn a license. It takes about 4-5 years to complete the program. The courses are mathematics, chemistry and physics.
After covering flight and stability control, students may delve into aircraft sensors and electrical components, as well as wing structure and flaps. In senior year they take lab and design courses. These courses may require research into issues ranging from construction materials to wing design. These universities and colleges have programs for aerospace engineering: Massachusetts Institute of Technology Cambridge, MA,California Institute of Technology Pasadena, CA,Stanford University , CA, and many more.
What do they design?
Aerospace engineers design aircrafts, spacecrafts, satellites, and missiles. In addition, they test prototypes to make sure that they function according to design
Aerospace engineering is the primary branch of engineering that concerns the design, research, development, construction, testing, and science of air crafts and spacecrafts. It is divided into two major and overlapping branches: aeronautical engineering and astronautical engineering. Aerospace engineers create spacecrafts, satellites, aircrafts, and missiles. In addition they test prototypes to ensure that they function according to design. Aerospace engineers design, create, and manufacture aircraft and spacecraft.
The Minimum salary for an aerospace engineer is $55,OOO
Demand for Aerospace Engineers
Aerospace engineering jobs are projected to go up from 2012 to 2022 by 7%, which is extremely slow as far as jobs go. Compared to marine engineers, who are supposed to go up by 10% in that same time period. Usually aerospace engineers have a lot more demand, but lately they are not needed as much because there aren't very many space projects underway and we don't need many new planes. Aerospace engineers must be very exact in performing their job. Designs often include very tiny measurements. They rarely consult in a supervisor before making decisions. They are free to set most goals and priorities on their own. They work in an environment that is moderately competitive. They make decisions weekly that have major effects on the company, customer, and coworkers.
Minnesota Aerospace Engineer Companies
Aerospace engineers usually get paid very well, their average salary in 2012 being 103,720 dollars, although it depends where you work and what you are working on for aerospace engineer's salaries.
By: Anna Nguyen, Elizabeth Getty, Cole Kennedy, and Reese Lind
Aerospace engineers are employed in industries whose workers design or build aircraft, missiles, systems for national defense, or spaceraft.
Some companies that employ aerospace engineers include: Bolton, Aerotek, Cummins, UTC aerospace systems, and many more. All of the companies above and a lot more all employ aerospace engineers. Even though aerospace engineering jobs aren't in very high demand, there are still jobs for them anywhere they are needed, which is in a LOT of places. Aerospace engineers have a very good median salary, and companies need aerospace engineers, so if you are an aerospace engineer it's a win-win for you.
People we know who are Aerospace Engineers...
Ellie's cousin Austin is training and in college to become a rocket scientist for NASA, which is astronautical enginnering, one of the branches of aerospace engineering. He has been in college for years and is going to become an aerospce engineer.
