Aerospace Engineering

Aerospace engineers design aircraft, spacecraft, satellites, missles, and they test the prototypes of those machines. The designing work is done inside offices, and mostly on computers; the engineers have a lot of weight on their shoulders -- one mistake could mean the loss of many lives. To make their devices foolproof, they always thoroughly test prototypes in many different environments.


A job in aerospace engineering requires a good understanding of physics, chemistry, algebra, trigonometry, and calculus. A bachelor's degree in aerospace engineering or something related to it is also necessary.

The median annual wage of aerospace engineers is $103,720 (as of May 2012), and employment opportunities are expected to grow seven percent from 2012 to 2022.

This is an example of one of the amazing devices an aerospace engineer designs.
