Aerospace Engineer Technition
This article will tell you about engineers.
Aerospace engineering and operations technicians held about 9,900 jobs in 2012. They usually work full time in laboratories, offices, and manufacturing or industrial plants. Many are exposed to hazards from equipment or from toxic materials, but incidents are rare as long as proper procedures are followed.
What they do
How to become one
The median annual wage for aerospace engineering and operations technicians was $61,530 in May 2012. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $40,020, and the top 10 percent earned more than $87,370.
Employment of aerospace engineering and operations technicians is projected to show little or no change from 2012 to 2022. Aerospace engineering and operations technicians work on many projects related to national defense and therefore require security clearances. This restriction will help to keep jobs in the United States. In addition, aircraft are being redesigned to cut down on noise pollution and to raise fuel efficiency, increasing demand for research and development particularly in support of air transportation.
Aerospace engineering and operations technicians work mainly in national defense–related projects or in designing civilian aircraft. Research and development projects, ranging from more efficient propulsion systems to new air transport concepts, will create demand for these workers.
Those who work on engines or propulsion will be increasingly needed as design and production emphasis shifts to rebuilding existing aircraft so that they give off less noise while using less
