Rocketry

Over the last few weeks I have enjoyed the field of rocketry. Rocketry is the branch of science that deals with rockets and rocket propulsion. A career in rocketry could be an engineer for Nasa designing the rockets or a scientist studying the effects of propulsion.

The job of a rocket scientist requires proficiency with physics, chemistry, aerodynamics, propulsion and mathematics.

A bachelors degree in aerospace engineering or a related field is the minimum requirement for an entry level position.

U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the median annual salary for aerospace engineers, including rocket scientist was $103,870 in 2013. Our lab station was relevant to this real world job by learning how to build a rocket.
