According to US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment of aerospace engineers is projected to grow 3 percent from 2019 to 2029, about as fast as the average for all occupations.
According to BLS, the median annual wage for aerospace engineers was $118,610 in May 2020.
Aerospace engineers are employed in industries in which workers design or build aircraft, missiles, systems for national defense, or spacecraft. They work primarily for firms that engage in manufacturing, analysis and design, research and development, and for the federal government.
Aerospace engineers now spend more of their time in an office environment than they have in the past, because modern aircraft design requires the use of sophisticated computer equipment and software design tools, modeling, and simulations for tests, evaluation, and training.
Aerospace engineers work with other professionals involved in designing and building aircraft, spacecraft, and their components. Therefore, they must be able to communicate well, divide work into manageable tasks, and work with others toward a common goal.
Types of similar occupations to Aerospace jobs:
Aerospace Engineering and Operations Technicians
Architectural and Engineering Managers
Computer Hardware Engineers
Electrical and Electronics Engineering Technicians
