About Us

“When you look at the stars and the galaxy, you feel that you are not just from any particular piece of land, but from the solar system.” ~Kalpana Chawla Aerospace engineers work with all kinds of aircrafts – from gliders to space shuttles. It focuses in designing, development, testing and manufacturing of aircraft – including rockets and spacecraft. Many engineers specialize in one area, like structural design, navigation systems, or manufacturing techniques. Others choose to specialize in a particular kind of air or space craft. Two types of aerospace engineers: Aeronautical Engineers – They work with aircrafts that stay within the earth’s atmosphere such as airplanes and helicopters. Astronautical Engineers – They work with aircrafts that operate outside of the earth’s atmosphere such as rockets, satellites, and other spacecrafts.
