Aerospace Engineers research and develop aircraft and their associated technologies. The subject is generally split into aeronautical engineering, concerned with atmospheric vehicles such as planes, and astronautic engineering, which focuses on aircraft and components which leave the atmosphere, such as satellites.
Aerospace Engineering modules cover several related disciplines, all of which are necessary to create an entire engineering team. They include fluid mechanics, mathematics, software design, propulsion and materials science. An emphasis on technical and management skills, as well as maths, physics and fluid mechanics, means that other branches of engineering and research are open to graduates.
Aerospace Engineering graduates find roles in aircraft and component design, aircraft manufacture, maintenance and testing, flight simulation, patent engineering, systems engineering and structures engineering.
Aerospace Engineering employment opportunities are available at various companies involved in designing and manufacturing aircraft and associated aspects of the industry. Huge companies such as Rolls-Royce Engines, British Airways, Airbus, BAE Systems and the Ministry of Defence constantly look at Aerospace Engineering graduates when recruiting.
