About this role

  • Creativity and innovation
  • Critical-thinking
  • Problem-solving

Aerospace structural engineers apply 3D models and fundamental mathematics to ensure aircraft are safe and efficient. Structural engineers work with stakeholders across an aircraft’s lifecycle, from the end-user to suppliers, to turn customer requirements into design concepts and then support production and in-service maintenance. 

This means that the types of problems aerospace structural engineers can work on are vast and varying; for example, early-stage technologies involve research and development of new, futuristic concepts alongside hands-on build and test of prototypes. Later in the aircraft design cycle, both in-service and during production, structural engineers rapidly address defects to keep production lines stable and aircraft usable.  

Structural engineers work closely with other engineering disciplines such as aerodynamics, systems, avionics, manufacturing, and materials. Together these teams develop aircraft technologies that help connect and protect the world.
