Aerospace engineers are responsible for designing and testing products that serve both the aeronautical and space industries. This role requires advanced materials knowledge and experience using specialized computer tools to draft designs for airplanes, helicopters, spacecraft, rockets, and other related machines.
Aerospace engineers require a Bachelor's degree in aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, mathematics, or a similar science-based field of study. As many aerospace engineers work on government contracts, a security clearance is likely necessary. Security clearances can be acquired either through military service or through an employer. This role requires individuals with distinct math and other technical skills. Individuals should also be strongly detail-oriented.
