Aeronautical engineering is the study of how things fly in the Earth's atmosphere and the application of that knowledge to design and build aircraft and missiles. It is a branch of engineering, which also includes astronautical engineering. There are many different subfields in aeronautical engineering, ranging from research and development to aircraft maintenance. The broad range of the field means that it is also very interdisciplinary, incorporating elements of math, electronics, and physics, among other things. There are many different types of jobs available in this field, but most require advanced degrees.

Areas of Focus

Aeronautical engineering encompasses an extremely broad range of areas, including the research and development, testing, assembly, and maintenance of aircraft and missiles and their parts. Other areas of focus include the effect that aircraft have on the surrounding environment, the potential dangers of specific aircraft, and their fuel and systems efficiency. Aeronautical engineers use many different elements in working on these areas, including math, electronics, software design, risk analysis, aerodynamics — the study of how air interacts with solid objects — and propulsion, which is the study of how to create enough force to achieve and remain in flight. The design of aircraft systems, or avionics, is also an important subfield, as is materials selection, which involves choosing materials that can withstand large amounts of force but are relatively light.

Work Environment

Aeronautical engineers tend to specialize in one or more of the areas above, but they also often work together with other specialists. Some areas of employment in this field include fuel efficiency testing, airframe design, engine design, flight testing, and investigating airplane crashes. Other jobs include gathering information through test flights, interpreting aircraft performance data, supervising the assembly of aircraft and missiles, analyzing the environmental impacts of flights, and assessing the potential risks of new aircraft designs. Training for aeronautical engineering varies regionally, but almost always includes a graduate degree. Some universities offer degrees in this field specifically, but degrees in related fields like mathematics, physics, and mechanical engineering can be useful as well.

Future & Scope of Aeronautical Engineering

Scope of Aerospace

Aeronautical engineering and operations technicians enjoy a broad field of work in which they can apply their skills. These technicians labor in both the flight science (aeronautics) field and the outer space sciences (astronautics). For instance, many of these technicians work in an astronautically environment at companies such as NASA, while others might work for an air flight company like Boeing. This means that aeronautical engineering and operations technicians have enormous possibilities which they can explore, leading to a truly interesting and absorbing environment. This also means that these technicians' work will always be needed in some form or another by various employers. Aeronautical engineering and operations technicians work in close partnership with aeronautical engineers. This means that job prospects for aeronautical engineering and operations technicians will reflect the conditions of their corresponding engineers' careers. Currently, a large influx of such engineers and a broadening interest in the aeronautical field is leading to saturation in the aeronautical engineering and operations technician field. However, job growth is still expected to occur at a modest percent, and those who are interested in such a field should not hesitate to pursue it.
