What would I do?
I would design and make sure that the designs are safe and at a high quality. I would also try to see what went wrong with with certain designs and try to figure out why it broke and how to solve it.
You need at least a bachelors degree to be an aerospace engineer. You have to be good at chemistry physics and math. You also need good writing skills to explain your designs.
