Aeronautical engineers design airplanes, satellites, and rockets. Because of the field’s complexity, they usually specialize in one area, such as designing an aircraft’s structural or electronic components. When aeronautical engineers design an airplane, they use their engineering knowledge to ensure its safety. They must also study the consumer market to learn what people want, and then try to include these new features in the design. (Starting salary: $58,130)
