Aerospace Engineering (AE)
Aerospace engineers are responsible for developing and testing aircrafts and missiles, along with supervising the manufacturing of spacecraft. Aerospace engineers also create new technologies that can be utilized in the fields of aviation, space exploration, and defense systems. Engineers in this field can specialize in propulsion systems, vehicle control, and communications. Some aerospace engineers also specialize in the development of a particular aerospace product, such as fighter jets, helicopters, and spacecraft.
