Aeronautical engineering is a branch of engineering which designs, manufactures and improves aeroplanes, satellites and weapons systems. Aeronautical engineers can work on civil or defence projects. Across the whole sector, aeronautical engineers work with advanced technologies to improve flight safety, fuel efficiency, speed and weight.
There are different types of employer in the aeronautical engineering sector. Within the public sector, there are apprenticeship positions available within the armed forces (Air Force, Army & Navy) and central government departments (the Ministry of Defence, MoD, or the Defence Engineering & Science Group, DESG). There are also private sector opportunities, from major defence contractors to airline operators and aircraft components manufacturers.
Within aeronautical engineering there are a variety of specialised disciplines: aerodynamics, composites analysis (understanding the properties of potential building materials), avionics (developing technical electronics systems for aeroplanes), propulsion, and structural engineering.
Depending on which discipline an aeronautical engineer specialises within, they may find themselves: analysing components in laboratories or test facilities, investigating accidents, designing models for aircraft and components, supervising manufacturing and assembly processes for components and whole aircraft, and preparing written reports for a variety of audiences.
