As you would expect, aerospace engineering and mechanics graduates design aircraft and spacecraft. However, they are also involved in designing many other high-tech systems. They develop new technologies in areas such as the biomedical and computer industries. They make it possible to explore space and oceans to carry people and products around the world, and to communicate globally. Aerospace engineering and mechanics is always at the forefront of modern technology and one of the most challenging career paths in the world.
