Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathmatics (STEM)
What do you as an aerospace engineer?
- Direct and coordinate the design, manufacturing and testing of aircraft and aerospace products such as airplanes, helicopters and missiles.
- Assess proposals for projects to determine if they are feasible.
- Determine if projects will result in safe standards.
- Ensure that projects meet standars.
- Inspect malfunctioning or damaged products and identify sources of problems and solutions.

Your Work Enviroment
This is usually where you will spend most of your time. You use a computer that has computer engineering programming. You will build the prototypes of aerospace tech needed for society in this office
Sometimes, you may need to see how something works. So, what's the best place to do this? A hangar! Usually, you test the airflow's directions in accordance of the wind and see if it's capable of flight.
You may or may not go out to sites like airplane fields, missile creation centers and other places to get an idea of what to make. You are still getting payed for it, so consider it a field trip for work.
As an aerospace engineer, your average paycheck may be around 75,000 dollars or so. But, you can go as low as 55000 or above and beyond over 100,000 dollars! But, be wary, because usually, it requires extra training or education to reach this point.
Benefits of Aerospace Engineer.
Benefits and Deficits of being an Aerospace Engineer.
- Testing planes, missiles, and other things related to Aerospace Technology.
- High amount of pay
- Getting into a 75000 average pay only requires a Bachelor
- Most of the time, you work in an office. BORING!
- You always have the risk of failure in your design.
- If you want even more pay, you may require more training or education.
