Its specializes in the designing, construction, development, testing, operation maintenance of both commercial and military aircraft, space crafts and their components as well as satellites and missiles. An Aeronautical Engineering involves design and manufacturing of very high technologies systems, the job requires manual, technical as well as mechanical aptitude. An Aeronautical Engineer needs to be physically fit and fully dedicated to his/her work. One needs to be alert, has an eye for detail and should have a high level of mathematical precision to be successful. One should have the capability to ensure a level of quality to minimize the accident hazards of operations.
