Aerospace engineers design and develop aerospace vehicles, systems, and their components. In addition, they may be involved in the installation, operation, and evaluation of these systems. These engineers often utilize computer-based modeling and simulation tools.
A four-year bachelor’s degree in mechanical or aerospace engineering is required. A higher degree (master's degree), which may take an additional two-three years to earn, would be more valuable and may be necessary to obtain positions in some organizations.
The job outlook for this position looks fair over the next 10 years, keeping in mind that geographical differences may exist. Opportunities look good in Canada.
