Career and Technical Education

Aerospace Engineering

Available at Martha Layne Collins High School

Instructor:

Mr. Lynn Neal, Martha Layne Collins High School

Mr. Shane Ware, Martha Layne Collins High School


This pathway prepares individuals to apply mathematical and scientific principles to the design, development and operational evaluation of aircraft, space vehicles, and their systems; applied research on flight characteristics; and the development of systems and procedures for the launching, guidance, and control of air and space vehicles. Aerospace engineers design primarily aircraft, spacecraft, satellites, and missiles. In addition, they test prototypes to make sure that they function according to design.
