Aerospace Engineering Degrees
Aerospace engineers research, analyze, design, synthesize, develop and test aircraft, spacecraft, and weapons. Aerospace engineers who focus on aircraft are called aeronautical engineers; those who concentrate on spacecraft are called astronautical engineers. They are essentially concerned with the aerodynamic properties of flight vehicles, such as airfoil, control surfaces, lift and drag. Aerospace engineers can specialize in areas such as structural design, propulsion, navigation, guidance and control systems, communications or defense systems.
