Featured jobs of the best industry.
The aerospace industry is on the upswing and talented engineers and computer
scientists are being sought after to fill thousands of positions. In today's global business climate where a diverse workforce is imperative for success, the International Aerospace Industry is looking forward to attract and retain technical professionals from India.
Aerospace Engineering - As a Career
The specialisations in Aerospace Industry includes, areas like structural design, navigational guidance and control systems, instrumentation and communication or production methods or it can be in a particular product such as military aircrafts, passenger planes, helicopters, satellites, rockets etc.
Aerospace professionals apply their knowledge to design better aircraft, send a spacecraft to Mars, or design a satellite to predict the weather. The same aerospace professionals may also apply their knowledge to study wind stress on new buildings; to eliminate energy waste in skyscrapers; to design automobiles, high-speed trains and ships; or to aid in artificial heart
research. The future of aerospace engineering is as exciting and challenging as its history.
The Indian Aerospace professionals find a very good demand in airlines, aircraft manufacturing units, air turbine production plants or design
development programmes for the aviation industry.
Various Career Opportunities
The job market for Indian aerospace engineering graduates has improved significantly in recent years along with the growth in the local as well as international aerospace industry. In addition, these aerospace engineering graduates are well qualified for employment in a variety of related fields. They may be employed in a number of different job functions, including :
Research and Development
The discovery of new methods of analysis, products, and processes.
The determination of the structure, arrangement and function of the components of a system or the system itself.
The testing of the performance of new products in conjunction with research, design, and development.
The building and assembling of products to meet rigid specifications. Customer Relations The interaction with buyers of the product.
Many engineers eventually go into engineering management, some into general management.
The Job Demands
As Aerospace engineering involves design and manufacture of very high technology systems, the job requires manual, technical as well as mechanical aptitude. The engineers usually work in teams under the supervision of senior engineers, bringing together their skills and technical expertise. Though highly paid, the work is very demanding.
The Must Have's
- An eye for detail and good problem-solving skills.
- Mathematical precision, design skills & computer skills
- Good Communication Skills, planning ability and a knack for working under pressure.
- Physical fitness & ability to work at great speed especially in checking and maintenance of aircrafts during turnarounds.
- A normal color vision.
To be an aerospace engineer one should have a graduate degree (B.E/B.Tech.) or at least a Diploma in Aerospace. The degree and postgraduate degree courses are offered by the Engineering colleges and Institutes of Technology (IITs), and the diploma courses are available at polytechnics.
The International Aerospace Industry employs, over a million, of people overseas and generates huge turnover. With the highest proportion of qualified employees in professional, technical, and skilled manual roles, Aerospace continues to attract Indian Engineers, who possess the greatest potential and 'knowledge base' to meet future business challenges.
