Aircraft engineering jobs are perfect for those with a combination of a good foundation in maths and science, as well as a propensity for getting your hands dirty! Not only that, but you’ll need a hound-like persistence in attention to detail, as ensuring safety is crucial if you want to work with planes. When you’re responsible for the safety of hundreds of people inside tonnes and tonnes of metal, employers will be looking out for the tech-lovers who won’t be able to go home until everything is absolutely perfect.

[JBEFORM]

Tasks will include maintenance, testing, and building of aircraft and aircraft-related projects, and jobs can be found in many places. You might find work in bigger aeronautical companies or at the airlines themselves - it all depends on what you’re looking for.

Getting into the industry

To work in aircraft engineering, you’ll need to have an absolute minimum of a B.Sc. degree. Ideally, you’ll have gotten a B.Sc. in Aircraft Engineering. If you didn’t study this particular subject but did study something similar, then you have the option of taking an MA in Aircraft Engineering. You also might take your MA in this area to increase, solidify and specialise, making you more employable!

Studying aircraft engineering will take you through a huge amount of subjects. This is by no means an exhaustive list of examples that you might study: fluid mechanics, propulsion systems, aviation legislation, integrated system analysis, business applications in engineering, electrical engineering….the list goes on and on.

If you’re currently at school or in further education, know that you’ll need 3 A Levels at B grade or above, and that these will need to be Maths- and Science-related. Alternatively, it is possible to acquire an HND or equivalent and then find yourself an aerospace apprenticeship to work your way up.

As for professional skills alongside your academic ability, precision and diligence are so, so important. You just can’t make mistakes in this line of work. So, an enjoyment of scrutiny and problem-solving are very important; if you find yourself bored by checking and re-checking things, this ain’t the job for you!

Finally, decent social skills and team work will be important too. You’ll be working with others under pressure, so make sure that you won’t crack under stress and that you can keep a smile on your face.

Career development

Engineers start out at a reasonable salary, and further experience will bump that up. As you really get the hang of it, you can move into senior positions and then onto management. You may also find that you consider making a lateral move into training, quality assurance, lecturing, or sales. For the free-range workers amongst you, moving into consultation is an option too.

Another good idea is further qualifications. As mentioned above, you might do an M.A. to increase what you know, but you can also work towards becoming a chartered engineer or an incorporated engineer.

Finally, should you decide to move into another industry, there are many industries that will happily take you, from automotive to chemical to energy. The diverse set of skills that you will have honed will be useful in many other applications, so know that your options are very much open as an aircraft engineer.

If this all sounds like the right gig for you, just start searching now. We have a wealth of jobs available with advanced search capabilities to find just the right post for you. Good luck!
