What fields of engineering would be useful for jobs involving space/space technology?
With big plans for space from some companies such as SpaceX and the general awe of space itself, it would be nice to knowwhat engineering fields would be involved. #engineering #career #space
Civils build and manage launch facilities, mechanicals and aerospace design and build vehicles, chemicals deal with fuels and materials, electrical and computer design and build control systems. Industrials manage manufacturing and assembly processes. Biomeds design and manage life support, etc, etc.
Aeronautics and astronautical engineering are good fields if you are interested in a career in space technology. The University of Washington has a highly regarded Department in this Field. It's Department Head was closely involved in the Mars Rover Project a decade ago.
