Aerospace systems engineering is the process of designing, testing, analyzing, and building small or large systems for the aerospace industry.

Aerospace systems engineering includes vehicles for air and space travel.

Aerospace systems engineering encompasses the use of technologies to design, develop, construct, test, and operate systems and components that are essential for aerospace travel.

This would include civil, military, and business aircraft; helicopters; unmanned aerial vehicles; space systems; and aircraft engines.

A vast array of equipment, services, components, information systems, and other high-performance systems are included.

Aerospace systems engineers may work on projects for the military sector, aviation businesses, or commercial aviation industry. Generally, space systems engineers become members of large design teams with people from diverse fields who can develop a product from concept sketches to actual manufacture.

The process in aerospace systems engineering can be divided into phases. During this initial phase, the foundation of the project is laid. Budgets are developed and key tasks are assigned to both individuals and newly formed teams. In the simplest terms, the project’s objectives are determined.

In the next phase, the project becomes more focused, with attention given to the product’s purpose and required functionality.

Moving into the third phase, the project team creates a series of concepts aimed toward the creation of the desired product. Each concept is then evaluated for both feasibility of production and applicability to the original objective.

The final phase focuses on the production of the design concept. The product is then tested to ensure that it meets the objective defined in the first phase and the requirements/specifications developed in the second phase.
