Top Universities for MS in Aerospace Engineering

Aerospace engineers can develop control systems for jet fighters, analyze new materials for spacecraft construction and research propulsion methods for missiles. These experts in mechanics, thermodynamics, robotics and aerodynamics are involved in creating and producing helicopters, military and commercial aircraft, rockets and space exploration craft. It’s most common for them to possess an aerospace engineering bachelor’s degree, although a master’s degree is usually needed for careers in engineering education and research.
