Aeronautical Engineering is the primary field of engineering concerned with the development of aircraft and spacecraft. It has two major and overlapping branches: (1) aeronautical engineering and (2) astronautical engineering. As flight technology advanced to include vehicles operating in outer space, the broader term "aerospace engineering" has come into use. Aerospace engineering, particularly, the astronautics branch, is often colloquially referred to as "rocket science".
Aeronautical engineering is a well-known branch of engineering that attracts students with an interest in airplanes and their mechanisms. The primary job of an Aeronautical engineer is to devise aircraft and propulsion systems. But with time, the engineer is given many more responsibilities to carry out. Recruitment opportunities are available mainly in defense services and the aviation industry.
Aeronautical engineering is very complex because of its vast syllabus which necessitates a lot of thoroughness and hard work. However, it is rewarding for any student as it leads to a job with good remunerations and lifestyle. An engineering degree in Aeronautical Engineering helps one in getting a job in the aviation industry, defense establishments, and civil aviation department.
