Aerospace Engineer

Aerospace engineers design, develop, and test aircraft, missiles, and space vehicles and oversee their production.

They often specialize in one kind of vehicle, such as passenger planes, helicopters, or rockets. In some cases, they also work with earthbound vehicles, such as deep-diving vessels that are used to do research in the oceans and high-speed trains that float above their tracks. Aerospace engineering includes aeronautical engineering, which is limited to aircraft, and astronautical engineering, which is limited to spacecraft.
