Aerospace Systems Engineering involves a systems approach to the design, efficient operation and modification of high-tech devices for the aeronautical and defense industries.

Aerospace engineering relates to all engineering that is done on aircraft that travel within the earth’s atmosphere. Airplanes, helicopters, drones, etc., all fall within this category.

Aerospace engineering helps us to create more efficient and effective aircraft. This doesn’t just apply to commercial aircraft, but also private and business aircraft including drones.

Aerospace Systems Engineering is about understanding and controlling the response of aerospace structures to complex interactions using a broad range of technologies. A key challenge for the development of aerospace systems is the need to be as light-weight as possible, yet highly reliable.

Over the years, the aerospace industry has often been at the forefront of innovation. Take the advancements in cloud computing due to the work of aerospace systems engineers.

Aside from the ability to connect every aircraft currently flying, expanding existing satellite systems and GPS or having up to date and relevant flight information, cloud computing can also benefit the intensive simulation work necessary for aerospace design and testing.

Aerospace systems engineers work primarily in two areas of employment: astronautical, which deals with spacecraft, rocket propulsion systems, and other space-related matters; and aeronautical, or terrestrial aircraft, ranging from small airplanes to large jets, fighter planes, missile guidance systems, and other Earth-bound flight operations.

Much of the same training and education is required for both, as is additional education dedicated to the area in which they specialize.

Aerospace systems engineering involves many types of job responsibilities, such as:

  • Develop, implement, and evaluate aerospace system testing, including scripts, specifications, and procedures
  • Assist in preparing test schedules and defining tasks
  • Prepare and present reports on system test results, assisting developers with system design
  • Collect and analyze test data and customer requests to assess system operations

Organizations in sectors such as automotive and 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.
