Aerospace Engineering is one of the most important and foremost sub-disciplines of Engineering and Technology. It is a scope in the field of engineering which works to develop aircraft and spacecraft. Earlier, this field of engineering was known as 'Aeronautical Engineering' but the term changed with the inception of technological evolution and the rising demands to operate in outer space. Under the purview of Aerospace Engineering, there are two major branches, Aeronautical Engineering and Astronautical Engineering. In both these categories, engineers are taught to learn and master the skills of manufacturing, designing, managing, and maintaining spacecraft and aircraft with the use of mathematics, physics, structures, aeronautics, and electricity.

Aeronautical Engineers work with great intelligence to not only develop spacecraft and aircraft but to detect technological failures and to find solutions in this regard. As a primary branch in engineering and technology, Aerospace Engineering extends its professionalism to the manufacturing of satellites and missiles. Phenomenal advancement and development of technology to create flying vehicles, space vehicles, solar-power aircraft, passenger drones, and data handling in aerospace, are targeted for use around the world. This would extensively boost the requirements for an Aerospace Engineer in the near future so that this challenge is met through them. Technically, Aerospace Engineering is an ideal option to choose from among the varied sub-disciplines of Engineering and Technology.
