“The path from dreams to success does exist.” – Kalpana Chawla
We have all heard about Kalpana Chawla and the name and fame she has brought to our country, India. To fulfil her dream of being an aerospace engineer, she pursued B.Tech in Aerospace Engineering from Punjab and later went abroad to pursue higher studies.
Has the concept of how this world, especially our solar system, functions always intrigued you? Have you been that kid who runs to the terrace every time an aircraft passes from above? Have you always wanted to rule the sky and learn more about those giant flying machines? Well, Aeronautical Engineering is an excellent career choice for you then.
While it is a great sign if you have been awestruck by these things as a child, it is not enough to pursue Aeronautical Engineering as a career. For choosing it as a full-fledged career, you need to be passionate about it. And, by passionate, I mean excessively passionate.
What is Aerospace Engineering?
Aerospace Engineering deals with the study and creation of advanced technologies in the field of aviation, defense system, and space technology. Aerospace Engineers may not fly aircraft themselves, yet have a big role to play in the field of aviation.
So you know that you have always loved airplanes and would love to make it as a career but are still not very sure why you should pursue a degree in the field? Do you need more reasons to be sure this is the place you want to be? Well, here is why you should go for B.Tech in Aerospace Engineering:
- They are paid well: Aerospace Engineering is one of the highest paid professions, which also guarantees a good social status and high standard of living.
- Always in Demand: The aerospace industry is always in demand for skilled and trained aerospace engineers. Be it the private sector or the government sector, they are always looking for efficient and skilled engineers. Moreover, to retain them, they offer many perks.
- The chance to go international: Most of the projects aerospace engineers are involved with having some connection abroad. Hence, there is unlimited scope to go international as an aerospace engineer.
- Always learning: As an aerospace engineer, you are like a student in the learning phase. The experience you gain through working on projects and being a part of a team always has something for you to learn. Think about it, you might have a rocket scientist on your team!
It gives you wings!
Thinking of Red Bull? Besides Red Bull, a career in Aerospace Engineering can give you wings and literal ones at that! From flying kites to paper rockets to airplanes to actual rockets, the journey seems tough but is totally worth it.
Besides, Aerospace Engineering is a field which has unlimited scope and never fails to surprise you. And, who wouldn’t want to get into a field which always has something new for you to learn? Each day is a new learning experience for you, so why not?
