Aerospace Engineering Research
Aerospace engineering is an engineering field that is very broad, but specializes in design, develop, and test aircraft, spacecraft, and missiles, and supervise their manufacture. Those who work with aircraft are called aeronautical engineers; also Aerospace engineers can specialize in the development and designing of anything that flies ranging from aircrafts, missiles, etc.While Aerospace engineering does specialize in aircrafts, the tools that they have can be used in many other fields. One example is helping in the design of a car to make it less air resistant, making the car that much more fuel efficient. Another interesting fact is that most engineers no matter the field is that they almost never work alone rather they work in a team of different types of engineers that can accomplish big projects together and faster than one could alone. The knowledge that a Aerospace Engineering has can allow them to shift in different projects/jobs, making the job outlook for them very good so if they can’t find a job in aerodynamics another job is never too far for Aerospace Engineers.To become an Aerospace Engineer one needs to first get their Bachelor Degree in Engineering that means that they need to take Bachelor’s degree programs in engineering typically are designed to last 4 years, but many students find that it takes between 4 and 5 years to complete their studies. According to the Sloan Career Cornerstone Center, Aerospace Engineering takes typically 4-years in a college curriculum; the first 2 years are spent studying mathematics, basic sciences, introductory engineering, humanities, and social sciences. In the last 2 years, most courses are in engineering, usually with a concentration in one branch. For example, the last 2 years of an aerospace program might include courses in fluid mechanics, heat transfer, applied aerodynamics, analytical...
