Have you ever wanted to tell your friends that you know “rocket science”? If so, aerospace engineering is the field for you! Aerospace engineers design aircraft, like planes and helicopters, as well as spacecraft, such as rockets and satellites. They deal with topics such as aerodynamics, which deals with the motion of air when it interacts with a solid object, and materials science, which relates the properties of a material at the atomic level to its properties at a larger scale. A bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering is usually required to become an aerospace engineer.
