Aerospace Engineering  
 
 

Aerospace engineering is an engineering which consists of designing, construction, testing aircraft, missiles and spacecraft. Aerospace engineers’ deals with the study of physical properties of rockets, spacecraft, flying craft and aircraft, most offered academic programs are in Aerospace Engineering. Aerospace engineers develop newer, safer, more energy-efficient and economical methods for travel including airplanes, helicopters, missiles, satellites and spacecraft.

Aerospace engineers develop new technologies for use in aviation, defense systems and space. Aerospace engineers may conduct basic and applied research to evaluate adaptability of materials and equipment to aircraft design and manufacture. They also recommend improvements in testing equipment and techniques.

It is divided into two branches

1. Aeronautical engineering (Aeronautical engineering is a branch of aerospace engineering    which includes construction and testing of aircraft, missiles and spacecraft. Aeronautical     engineers use the science of propulsion and aerodynamics.)

2. Astronautically engineering (It is the science and technology of space flight which is the     navigation beyond the Earth's atmosphere.) .


Specialty areas of Aerospace Engineering

Structural design: Designing the body of the aircraft includes shape testing,     manufacturing materials selection, strength and structural modeling.


Flight mechanics and control systems: Studying and modeling the performance of an     aircraft control systems and testing of aircraft.


Aerodynamics: Study of aerodynamic forces of moving aircraft.


Instrumentation and communication: Designing and improving performance of aircraft     components and systems.


Manufacturing and maintenance: Supervising construction of aircraft.


Propulsion Systems


Guidance & Control Systems

 

Employment

Aerospace Engineers are employed in government owned enterprises such as ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization), DRDO (Defense Research and Development Organization), HAL (Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd.), NAL (National Aeronautics Labs), etc. Aerospace engineering offers a wide range of roles in research, design, development, testing, manufacture and maintenance of aircraft, missiles and spacecraft. Aerospace Engineers are involved in applying the principles of science and technology to create aircraft, undertaking systematic manufacturing, involved in the assembly and modification of components, resolving issues of designing, development, testing processes, servicing, measuring and improving the performance of aircraft components and systems. They also work on the different components that make up these aircraft and systems.
