Aerospace Engineering | Job Market

Aerospace Engineering is the study and development of aircraft and space crafts. It is a combination of machines that fly in Air (Aeronautical Engineering) and machinery that can move outside the earth’s atmosphere (Astronautical Engineering). Very few universities offer this program in Pakistan and the number of companies that hire aerospace engineers is also very limited. This has increased the demand for aerospace engineers in Pakistan. Job market for aerospace engineering graduates can be found below.
