Aeronautical Engineering vs. Mechanical Engineeringby Mandakini Bakshi Career caounsellor
First of all the question arises, what basically is aeronautical engineering? Aeronautical Engineering and aircraft maintenance engineering deal with the designing, maintaining and repairing air crafts.
Aeronautics is basically divided into three sections which are aviation, aeronautical science and aeronautical engineering.
Aeronautics also refers to the operating of aircraft and rockets in the atmosphere. Now, first of all, let us know about aviation.
Aviation means the flying of air crafts for military purpose, surrounding flight an entire aircraft industry. Secondly, aeronautical science this section deals with the design and study of aircraft.
Third comes aeronautical engineering this field deal with the designing, maintaining and repairing air crafts.
By achieving this course person may choose their ambition as maintenance engineer, researcher, designer etc.
The scope for this field is best in countries like Germany, Russia, India, United States of America etc. people who understand things rather than memorizing can look for their career in this field as the things are based on concept like designing, repairing, maintaining so here memorizing won’t work for the crammers.
As in this field, jobs are not easy to proceed. One who is experienced or has a plenty of knowledge or is eager to learn about this field can get success in this field.
Subjects that are the key to this field are mathematics, physics, and chemistry.
Now coming to mechanical engineering. The question arises what basically mechanical engineering is? Mechanical engineering simply refers to the designing, maintaining, repairing and handling of machines. It also deals with the design and invention of automobiles, generators, elevators, escalators etc. math and science are the subjects which are the key to achieve success in this field. One can or may chose computer informatics and humanities for betterment and knowledge in this field. Canada, New Zealand, Japan, China etc. are some countries which provide the best education and job opportunities in this field of mechanical engineering.
Which one is better Mechanical or Aeronautical
From the above discussion, we have come to know about both the field of aeronautical engineering and mechanical engineering.
According to the discussion and studies, one should opt for aeronautical engineering as there is a demand for the engineers in the field of aeronautics.
Many of the people are not aware of this field of engineering so it has more job opportunities in this field.
Now if we talk about the salary package in this field, the average salary in this field is 6 lakh 21 thousand per year whereas in mechanical the average salary package is about 3 lakh 37 thousand.
From this comparison, we can clearly see how good salary package this industry that is Aeronautical industry offers the package.
Most of the people run towards common fields like IT engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Civil Engineering etc.
There was the time when there was the huge demand for these fields but all the youngsters run towards the same there is a high possibility in future that companies would hire robots that would do the work of 10 people in one goes which would definitely result in unemployment in our country India.
But there would be no unemployment in aeronautics as this industry keeps on growing as the planes, military air crafts, helicopter, missiles are being increased day by day so there would be the requirement in this field.
