Aerospace engineering is mostly the same and the scope is beyond imagination both in India and abroad. Aerospace engineering is a broad branch from science dealing with many aspects like technical division, aircraft body design, engine design, safety measure design and many more. As a aeronautical or a aerospace engineer you need to get specialised in one path. For example students who study aerospace engineering usually get specialised from their elective course like technical aspects, engine design or air craft body design. Therefore according to ones specialisation one will also get the job. For example, if you specialise in engine design you will get jobs in General electric (GE), Rolls Royce etc and if you specialise in air craft body design then you will get jobs in Boeing, Air bus company etc. Similarly if you choose to work only at technical division the companies that build the aircraft itself like the Boeing and Air bus will employ you. In India these companies also have their technical plants and therefore people with technical skills are in great demand. Apart from this you can also look for jobs in airport ground level. A flight technician at airport ground level will know to handle the technical difficulties like the pressure or connectivity problems with the flight. You will be present at the airport and will be in charge of conducting inspection on every flight you are assigned to and if it has any technical difficulties you will attempt to solve it.
The original term for Aerospace Engineering was “Aeronautical engineering” but after the advancement of technology include craft opening in outer space the term was replaced to Aerospace Engineering. It comes under engineering courses. It is the demanding and challenging branch of engineering.
Aerospace engineering focuses in designing, construction, development, testing and maintenance of commercial and military aircrafts and spacecrafts.
Duties of An Aerospace Engineer:
An aerospace engineer develops, maintains and tests the performance of civil and military aircraft, missiles, Satellites and space vehicles that meets the customer requirements.
Settling the issues that arise during the design, development and testing processes.
Modifying design to inbuilt some new functions and improve safety features.
Performing ground and flight-testing programmes on prototypes.
Estimate feasibility, productibility, cost, and production time of an aerospace vehicle.
Write and review technical reports.
