I am thinking about studying aerospace engineering for college. Before I apply, I really need to know what the employment opportunities are. Am I likely to get a job quickly after I graduate? What is the salary range for beginners? Aerospace engineering is really tough, and I need to know if I will get a high income job after studying hard. I would really love to get such degree, but I must look ahead and think about my future. I hope some of you will be able to help me!
Aerospace engineers are expected to have 10 percent growth in employment over the projections decade, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Increases in the number and scope of military aerospace projects likely will generate new jobs. In addition, new technologies expected to be used on commercial aircraft produced during the next decade should spur demand for aerospace engineers. The employment outlook for aerospace engineers appears favorable. The number of degrees granted in aerospace engineering has declined for many years because of a perceived lack of opportunities in this field. Although this trend has reversed, new graduates continue to be needed to replace aerospace engineers who retire or leave the occupation for other reasons.
