What is Aerospace Engineering?
Aerospace, as a whole, is divided into two parts, aeronautical and aerospace engineering, with the former more involved in designing aircraft for use in atmosphere, and the latter dealing with spacecraft design and production.
Aeronautical engineering deals with the designing and testing of new and improved jet engines
