Are you a creative thinker who thrives on challenges? Do machines that fly intrigue you? Do you aspire to soar high in thrilling industries that offer a secure and well-paid career? Well, if you are nodding excitedly to all these questions, then Aerospace Engineering might be your calling! 


Aerospace engineering is a highly specialised branch of Mechanical Engineering concerned with the design, testing, manufacture, deployment and maintenance of aircraft, spacecraft, and related systems & equipment that operate in earth’s atmosphere or outer space.  

The captivating field of study comprises two overlapping branches: Aeronautical Engineering (science behind atmospheric flight vehicles) & Astronautical Engineering (science behind space flight vehicles).  

Aerospace engineers choose a speciality within the field such as structural design, production, communication and instrumentation, robotics, combustion, navigation, guidance and control, etc., and specialise in a particular product of aerospace industry like rockets, missiles, spacecraft, gliders, helicopter, military fighter jet or commercial spacecraft. For instance, some aerospace engineers design fighter jets while some develop technology to repair/refuel satellite in space.  

Depending upon their area of interest & specialization, they become experts in aerodynamics, celestial machines, propulsion, thermodynamics, acoustics, or control systems. 


Aerospace engineers are engaged in a challenging field of science that requires them to have sound computing and technological talents along with a knack for creativity, accuracy and forward thinking and sound computing and technological talents.  An aerospace engineer has to design, develop, test and troubleshoot various advanced technologies in spacecraft, aviation and defense systems. Apart from these, the duties of the aerospace engineers include (but are not limited to): 

  • Examining proposals and design requirements 
  • Conducting theoretical and practical research 
  • Assessing the technical and financial feasibility of projects 
  • Formulating and ensuring products meet quality control standards 
  • Evaluating and improving performance of aircrafts, spacecraft and related equipment 
  • Identifying/ fixing problems with manufacturing processes and malfunctioning products 


Be it working in a commercial airline sector to make flights for safer, fuel efficient and environment friendly or developing missiles, rockets and more for national defence, an Aerospace Engineer finds employment opportunities in private and public industries, such as technology, aircraft, defense, federal government, etc. In fact, Aerospace Engineers majorly work in the government agencies and manufacturing industries. Some of the major recruiters of aerospace engineering graduates are:  

  • Defence ministry 
  • Airlines  
  • Research and development organizations 
  • Aviation companies 
  • Corporate research firms 
  • Consulting firms 
  • Colleges & Universities
