Aerospace Engineering by Mind Map: Aerospace Engineering

1. Computer Engineering

1.1. Computer engineers are needed to assist aerospace engineers in communications and other types of computer functions.

2. Aviation

2.1. Aerospace engineers develop new technologies for use in aviation.They also may specialize in a particular type of aerospace product, such as commercial aircraft, military fighter jets, helicopters, spacecraft, or missiles and rockets.

3. Space Travel

3.1. Many also work for companies that are under government contract to produce equipment needed for missiles and spacecraft. They study how the materials will react in certain conditions such as intense heat or speeds encountered in space travel.

4. Other special fields in aerospace engineering include propulsion, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, celestial mechanics, and acoustics.

5. Mechanical Engineering

6. Chemical Engineering

6.1. Scientists such as physicists or metallurgists do the research needed to create new materials.

7. Communication

7.1. Aerospace engineers often specialize on instrumentation and communication.
