Aerospace Engineer: Career options,Job prospects, Top Recruiters

Aerospace Engineering also is known as aeronautical engineering or astronautical engineering is one of the branches of engineering that deals with the design, development, testing, and production of aircraft systems, missiles, rocket, etc.  It is one of the newest branches of engineering which began in the 19th century. Aeronautical engineering involves designing aircraft such as powered lighter-than-air craft, gliders, fixed-wing airplanes and jets, autogyros, and helicopters, and astronautical engineering focuses on the design and development of spacecraft.
 In addition to these professionals test prototypes to make sure that they function according to plans as they are responsible to note specifications for destructive and nondestructive testing for strength, functionality, reliability, and long-term durability of aircraft and parts. These engineers need to have in-depth skills and understanding in physics, mathematics, aerodynamics and materials science and also must be familiar with advanced materials such as metal alloys, ceramics, polymers, and composites. They can even predict and analyze the performance and failure conditions of designs before they are even built.
