Why would I want to be an Aerospace Engineer?

Few disciplines have inspired humanity as much as aerospace engineering. Many of the technological advances that are now part of our daily lives, such as handheld calculators and non-stick pans, were initially developed to aid in space flight. Today’s aerospace engineers are still working to help us view the edges of the universe as well as improve the way that we live our lives right here on planet earth.
