 ==== ====For more information on Aviation Engineering please check this out;http://aviationacademyinfo.com/ar/aviation-engineering.php ==== ====So what exactly what is an aviation engineer and what is their main job function? An aviationengineer oversees the design, construction and implementation of many types of aviation vehiclessuch as airplanes, spacecraft and even missiles. You can break down aviation engineering into 2 categories. Aeronautical engineering whichcovers the field of aircraft design, implementation and testing whereas astronautical engineeringdeals with spacecraft. Becoming an aviation engineer can be an extremely rewarding life for the person who travelsdown this challenging career path. There are many reasons why this is true but maybe the mostimportant and rewarding reason is the duty and responsibility to create and construct safe aircraft,not only for the commercial airlines that transport thousands of travelers every day but also for themilitary sector and the personnel who depend on safe aircraft to carry out their duties. By reading the above, it becomes obvious that there is a fair amount of education and trainingrequired in order to become an aviation engineer and one would be correct in that assumption. Let us look at the education prerequisites. An undergraduate starts his study typically in a 4-year college university with a variety of'foundation' curriculum courses. These would include: 1. Algebra, Calculus and possibly other advanced math2. Economics and some English3. Computer Graphics4. Statistics, Communications and Business Management The importance of pre-requisite courses as part of the aviation engineering education curriculumcannot be overstated. A student could ask 'why do I need some of these classes' that seeminglyhave no direct correlation to the aviation study at hand. Rest assured that a solid foundation ofeducation in the basic and advanced studies will assist the students' overall knowledge as itapplies to aviation in a much more direct manner than they could ever realize. During this 4 year education and training many schools and universities will offer more advancedaviation engineering classes concurrently, thus reducing or sometimes even eliminatingsubsequent trade schooling. The major types of aviation specific classes are:
