Career progression and options

Once you've got the relevant academic qualifications, you'll normally get your career onto its flight path via a company’s training scheme, working towards the Part-66 engineering licence. This is issued by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) on behalf of the European Aviation Safety Agency and allows you to work as a qualified engineer. It has three categories, A, B and C. Category B is the standard licence for many engineers ­ it allows you to specialise in mechanics, such as engines and fuselage, or avionics (think flight instruments and communications).

 

 

Potential employers:

• Airbus

• Atkins

• BAE Systems

• Rolls Royce

• Boeing

 

Example careers:

• Aerospace engineer

• Field engineer

• Manufacturing systems engineer

• Materials engineer

• Flight Physics engineer


There are also alternative careers if graduates wish to pursue a different path:

• Automotive engineer

• Control and instrumentation engineer

• Energy engineer

• Production manager

• Quality manager
