On the Job


The aerospace industry, which includes companies like Boeing and Lockheed Martin, has an insatiable demand for engineers. 

Commercial and freight airline companies like American Airlines and Federal Express do, too. Automobile manufacturers, like Ford and Toyota, also hire aerospace engineers. NASA, of course, is a big source of jobs, as are some other government agencies, particularly the Departments of Defense and Energy. And a growing number of aerospace engineers are landing jobs with commercial space operations like Virgin Galactic. Find out more about Aerospace Engineering.
