Samar’s Answer

I am in software engineering, so cannot speak for Aerospace in general, but common principles should apply. Most engineers enjoy the job, because often times they don't know what they have to work on and that is what makes it exciting. There is so much innovation and change happening that the best way to approach an engineering career is if you are excited about the change. I would advise you to look into what areas of aerospace engineering you are interested in and go from there with the potential areas being manufacturing, analysis and design, research and development. Just remember that space travel is going to become common too and that will lead to new areas in aerospace engineering.

Douglas’s Answer

I work in software engineering right now, but I have a degree in mechanical and aerospace engineering. Aerospace engineers handle many hard questions that face society. Aerospace engineering is a great career option since launches into space are accelerating. Aerospace engineers are in very high demand right now due to recent activity and interest in space. There is a moon mission called Artemis being planned that is focused on setting up a permanent base on the moon. Missions are also being planned for Mars and additional exploration in further reaches of the solar system. NASA has recently selected new astronaut recruits to train for future missions. Not everyone will be going into space, but aerospace engineers will be crucial to designing and building spacecraft and devices needed in this sector. In addition to space, there are many other needs for aerospace engineers for more terrestrial areas, like airplanes designed for supersonic flights.
