Aerospace & Defense Engineering Courses: Well, yes, it is rocket science – and so much more.

Aerospace engineering deals with designing and building machines that fly. It is one of the newest branches of engineering getting its start in the 19th century with the first experiments in powered flight.

As technology progressed, two specialties emerged:

  1. Aeronautical engineering — This involves designing aircraft such as powered lighter-than-air craft, gliders, fixed-wing airplanes and jets, autogyros and helicopters.
  2. Astronautical engineering — This focuses on the design and development of spacecraft.

Aeronautical engineers are primarily involved in designing aircraft that fly within Earth’s atmosphere, while astronautical engineers work with the science and technology of spacecraft that fly outside Earth’s atmosphere.

Defense engineering on the other hand is all about the development and production of technology that is used to ensure national security and maintain the stability of governments and nations throughout the world.

The aerospace and defense industry is strong and trending upward according to reports by Deloitte Consulting and national analysts. In 2018, the global aerospace and defense (A&D) industry recuperated and experienced a solid year as passenger travel demand strengthened and global military expenditure continued to rise. The industry is expected to continue its growth trajectory in 2019, led by growing commercial aircraft production and strong defense spending.

Findings include:

  • The commercial aircraft order backlog is at its peak of more than 14,000 — with about 38,000 aircraft expected to be produced globally over the next 20 years.
  • Geopolitical tensions are continuing to intensify and demand for military equipment is on the uptick, driving defense spending across the globe.
  • M&A activity to remain strong as pressure on suppliers to reduce costs and increase production rates continues.
  • Though A&D industry growth is primarily led by the United States, other regions including China, France, India, Japan, the Middle East and the UK, will be contributing to the industry’s performance in the near term.

From the systems engineering perspective, organizations in sectors such as aerospace find systems engineering especially useful to identify alternative solutions, prevent any unforeseen problems and ensure the customer is satisfied with the quality of the finished product.

The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) states that effective use of systems engineering can save over 20 percent of the project budget.
