What is Aerospace?
Aerospace Engineering is a division of engineering that focuses on the design of aircraft and spacecraft. I am interested in pursuing this field because I would like to design air crafts and other vehicles. I would also like to test prototypes in a wind tunnel and learn more about aerodynamics.
The median annual wage for aerospace engineers was $103,720 in May 2012. A compensation study published by Aviation Week in 2012 found that average annual pay among aerospace engineers was $71,859 at the entry level. If you are an engineer with years of experience, depending on what industry you work in, you can usually make around $100,000 a year.
