Aerospace Engineer Employment

Aerospace engineers held about 81,000 jobs in 2010. They are employed in industries whose workers design or build aircraft, missiles, systems for national defense, or spacecraft. Aerospace engineers are employed primarily in analysis and design, manufacturing, industries that perform research and development, and the federal government.
Aerospace product and parts manufacturing 35%
Architectural, engineering, and related services 15%
Scientific research and development services 14%
Federal government 13%
Navigational, measuring, electromedical, and  control
instruments manufacturing
8%

Aerospace engineers now spend more of their time in an office than they have in the past, because modern aircraft design requires the use of sophisticated computer equipment and software design tools, modeling, and simulations for tests, evaluation, and training.

Aerospace engineers typically work full time. Engineers who direct projects must often work extra hours to monitor progress, to ensure that the design meets requirements, to determine how to measure aircraft performance, to see that production meets design standards, and to ensure that deadlines are met.
