Aerospace engineering is the branch of engineering behind the design, construction and science of aircraft and spacecraft. It is broken into two major and overlapping branches: aeronautical engineering and astronautical engineering. Aerospace engineering deals with the design, construction, and science behind the forces and physical properties of aircraft, rockets, flying craft, and spacecraft. People in this field work with, and help develop, some of the most advanced technologies on the planet. Aerospace engineers have produced everything from lightweight gliders, to airplanes that weigh over a half a million pounds, to communications satellites and the international space station. Aerospace engineers are often broken into two groups: aeronautical engineers (who work primarily with aircraft) and astronautical engineers (who work primarily with spacecraft). However, all aerospace engineers must have an understanding of the field s core subjects, such as aerodynamics, propulsion, thermodynamics, and guidance and control systems. Aerodynamics is the study of how objects fly through the air or space. For example, the shape of an airplane s wings allows it to stay airborne when in motion. Aerospace engineers often change the characteristics of aircraft by altering their shape. Such alterations can make them more fuel efficient, faster, or even invisible to radar. Thermodynamics is the study of how objects react under various temperatures. Rockets are subjected to very high temperatures when they break through the earth s atmosphere. The body of the rocket must be constructed of a material that can withstand extreme temperatures. Engineers usually specialize in one area, such as structural design, propulsion systems, instrumentation, communications, or even production methods. In the process of creating the vehicle, system, or part they need, they use advanced equipment, including computer-aided design (CAD) software, robotics, lasers, and advanced electronic optics. The communications satellite segment of the industry has grown dramatically in recent years. As demand continues to expand for more TV channels, cell phones, and Internet access, the demand for communications satellites will also increase. Aerospace engineers will be needed to design, build, and even repair such satellites.
