Aerospace engineers work with aircraft, missiles, and spacecraft. They formulate the conceptual design of products based on customer and client needs, or sometimes design products that anticipate their needs. In doing so, they also need to analyze proposed projects to determine their feasibility, cost, and production time, and to prioritize them accordingly. Once the concepts have been selected, aerospace engineers manage teams of engineering or technical personnel to actually design and produce them. Finally, the safety and viability of the products must be meticulously tested and retested, ensuring that they meet quality standards and completion dates. Finally, aerospace engineers must write and produce the safety manuals, handbooks, bulletins, and other materials concerning the operation and management of their products.

Being successful aerospace engineers involves the use of a variety of different kinds of tools and softwares. Aerospace Engineers need to be able to use high end computer servers, flight simulators, and electronic flight instrument systems (EFIS). They also need to use technical testing divides like power microwave generators and vibration isolation tables. In addition, software’s like MATLAB, Wolfram Research Mathematica, database software like Microsoft Access, and development environment software like Microsoft Visual Basic and Verilog are absolutely necessary. Finally, most aerospace engineering positions require a level of component oriented development software competence. This may involve programming languages like Microsoft Visual C++, Perl, Java, and others.

Like any other engineering field, aerospace engineers need a high level of math, science, and technology knowledge. This includes in design, physics, mechanical tools, and more. The vast majority of aerospace engineers develop these skills and knowledge banks by completing university degrees. The majority of aerospace engineers have a bachelor’s degree, though these days an increasing number are earning a master’s as well. A minority have doctorates.

A passion for working with people, a talent for analytical thinking, and a high degree of persistence, initiative, and innovation are impossible to teach. These more innate talents and characteristics are much of the reason why ENTJ’s are inclined to progress at the aerospace engineer occupation.
