Work in the aviation industry

Work in the aviation industry

The aeronautical industry is positioned in Mexico as one of the most thriving sectors with the greatest future in our country. And you can participate if you study any engineering related to this branch.

Aeronautics is one of the industries that generates more investment and opportunities for the engineers of our country. For that reason, today we will talk about which careers can drive you to collaborate in this growing area.

Mexican engineers have the opportunity to participate in this sector, which is responsible for the design, manufacture and maintenance of aircrafts, to compete with great powers and to demonstrate the quality of the work done in our country.

However, as in most industries, if you are interested in being part of the aeronautics industry, not only can a degree lead you to work in this field, but you will also be able to find employment opportunities in which graduates with different profiles are sought. That said, today we will talk about three careers that will help you get involved in this area of work.

Systems Engineering

While we generally relate this engineering only to the computers and systems we use on a daily basis (whether at home, at school or in factories), you should know that it has many more applications and can influence multiple sectors. It is about creating and applying technologies for the benefit of people and organizations through design, programming, implementation and maintenance of systems.

All of this allows systems engineers to work on innovative projects that influence sectors such as aeronautics. Within the latter, we work on the design and development of improvements for both civil and military aircraft and systems that are handled at airports.

Some of the key contributions of Systems Engineering to the aeronautical industry are

  • Pneumatic and air conditioning systems. They allow breathing in the cabin, among other functions.
  • Powerplant. As for its structure, it is the place where the engines are housed.
  • Landing gear. It is the set of wheels, supports, shock absorbers and other equipment that an aircraft uses to descend.
  • Inertia. Prevents the explosion of fuel tanks.

Without a doubt, the professionals in this career have great knowledge to contribute to aeronautics and have a great field of action that they can influence. So if you are thinking of collaborating in this industry and have skills for research, analysis, synthesis and good logical reasoning, Systems Engineering is ideal for you.

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering is a degree that is responsible for designing, developing and manufacturing new equipment and products through the application of technology. With this in mind, those who graduate from this degree can also work in a large number of fields, one of which is aeronautics.

Within this area, mechanical engineers can participate in the manufacture of parts and components, maintenance of equipment and in research centers that seek to develop innovations for the improvement of aircraft.

Keep in mind that, despite the macroeconomic phenomena that can give uncertainty to global markets, Mexico is positioned as the seventh largest supplier to the aerospace industry in the United States and is the third place in foreign investment in the sector, so the outlook for those who decide to pursue a career in this area is very promising.

For all the above reasons, if you have skills for the exact sciences, interest in science and technology, analytical skills and a taste for product design and construction, study Mechanical Engineering. You will be able to practice your professional degree in aeronautics as well as in many other areas that will allow you to grow professionally and achieve your goals.

Engineering in Telecommunications and Electronics

Last but not least, you should know that Telecommunications and Electronics Engineering can not only provide you with a great deal of knowledge and job opportunities, but also open the doors to collaborate in aeronautics.

This degree trains professionals capable of integrating, designing, innovating and developing telecommunications systems through which data, audio and video can be transmitted. Without a doubt, the preparation that graduates of this degree acquire allows them to generate and implement technology related to their field of study.

In this sense, thanks to the telecommunications and electronics engineers, pilots can have an efficient communication through computers in which they can also record the data of the flight in which they are as the location and destination. This is especially important for air traffic control and vital for emergency situations. Also, their knowledge allows them to work in the automation of systems that manufacture some parts for the airplanes.

Without a doubt, this university career has had a great development that will allow them to have more and more influence in different industries. So if you have skills in logical reasoning, an interest in solving problems within the area of exact sciences and systems, and you have a penchant for research, Telecommunications and Electronics Engineering is an excellent choice for you.
