At some point in their career, most engineers think about making a lateral move. Rather than switching careers completely, this typically refers to a shift from engineering in one type of company to another.

At TSTI, we’re dedicated to providing the in-person and online training engineers needs to make this leap. Our space engineering courses are designed to help improve your systems engineering skills as they relate to the space domain.

Whether you’re a new hire looking to bolster your knowledge, or a seasoned engineer who wants to improve performance so you can be considered for a promotion, our online and onsite space engineering courses are an easy and efficient way to achieve your goals.

So, what kind of engineers are space-focused companies looking for? This post takes a look at some of the different career paths available for engineers in the aerospace industry.

Software Engineer

More than ever before, the successful development of rockets and spacecraft depends on highly advanced computers. Software engineers at aerospace companies are responsible for writing the code that autonomously pilots rockets and spacecraft, simulates flight scenarios, translates data, performs computational fluid dynamics, in addition to many other tasks.

Hardware Engineer

Whether they’re designed to carry people into the atmosphere or a telecommunications satellite into orbit, spacecraft contain dozens of boards and boxes that control every aspect of their flight. From ground communication and avionics to actuation and power, these elements must be designed and maintained by hardware engineers.

These are just two of the types of engineers that are currently needed by companies in the aerospace industry. TSTI has space engineering courses that can help you to obtain these jobs, or prepare you for more senior position in an aeronautics company at which you’re already employed!
