Aerospace engineering job guide

Aerospace engineering job guide

Aerospace engineering is best for those who truly adore aircraft. Work concerns research, building, designing and testing aircraft, spacecraft and satellites in all kinds of places, which helpfully means plenty of jobs! If you’re looking for aerospace engineering jobs or information about working in the aerospace engineering industry, you’ve come to the right place!


Aerospace engineering is best for those who truly adore aircraft. Work concerns research, building, designing and testing aircraft, spacecraft and satellites in all kinds of places, which helpfully means plenty of jobs! If you’re looking for aerospace engineering jobs or information about working in the aerospace engineering industry, you’ve come to the right place!

Those interested need excellent ability in Maths, a love for problem-solving, technical know-how, and a diligent and careful attitude towards their work. Whether you’re in R&D, construction or test analysis, there’s plenty of chances to flex that mathematical and methodical mind!


Getting into the industry

Aerospace engineering work requires further education, whether it’s through university or an apprenticeship - no question about it!

For the academic, you will have a Foundation Degree or HND in an appropriate area as an absolute minimum, along with the appropriate English and Maths skills. Obviously, aerospace engineering is the perfect area, but avionics is also an option. Alternatively, you might have studied a related subject, like electronic engineering, software engineering, manufacturing engineering or maths itself. These are all highly transferable, given how many areas that aerospace engineering covers. It is also highly like that you will need good grade in Maths and Physics at A Level; some universities may have different requirements but a solid understanding of these areas is undoubtedly helpful in this kind of field. There are plenty of graduate programs available through employers for those with a full B.Eng./B.Sc.

If you’ve not been to uni, or don’t expect to go in the traditional way, it is also possible to start as a technician with an HND and work your way up. Aerospace technician jobs with the appropriate employers then allow you to take on an apprenticeship to get on-the-job training and work your way up to degree level.

Finally, experience is really useful. Aim for courses with ‘sandwich years’ spent in industry where possible, or look for technician work during the holidays. It will help overall but can also be a nifty way for employers to spot recruits.

Career development

Your first promotion will likely be to that of Senior Engineering. You may also consider specialising in your preferred area of aerospace engineering. As you start to really develop long-term interest, you will likely consider achieving Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. This shows your very real interest in and commitment to aerospace engineering and thus will be very useful for those who want to progress as far as possible. If you’re interested in developing solutions to current problems, go for Chartered status; if you love maintaining and managing aerospace projects, go for Incorporated. Alternatively, Master’s degrees will also be great for specialisation and subsequent promotion and career developments. Once you’ve gotten to this stage, higher levels of management beckon as do lateral moves to areas like training, teaching and consultancy.

Getting started

If you’re ready to start looking for aerospace engineering work, then this is the perfect page for it. Our search functions allow precision searches with the option to refine by location, type of job and more to allow you to find just the right job for you!
