Aerospace engineering is the branch of engineering that concerns aircraft, spacecraft, and related topics. Aerospace Engineering was originally known as aeronautical engineering and dealt solely with aircraft. The broader term aerospace engineering has superseded the former in most usage, as flight technology advanced to include craft operating outside Earth s atmosphere.In analogy with aeronautical engineering , the branch is sometimes referred to as astronautical engineering, although this term usually only concerns craft which operate in outer space. Aerospace engineering is often informally called rocket science in popular culture. The specialisations includes in 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. Engineers may work in areas like design, development, maintenance as well as in the managerial and teaching posts in institutes. They find a very good demand in airlines, aircraft manufacturing units, air turbine production plants or design development programmes for the aviation industry. Aerospace environment is sophisticated with rewarding career opportunities involving leading-edge technology. To be an aeronautical engineer one should have a graduate degree B.E/B.Tech. or at least a diploma in Aeronautics. 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 Punjab Engineering College in Chandigarh from where Kalpana Chawla had studied Aerospace engineering is a good one.
