The Aerospace Engineering course aims to prepare students with skills and competencies to enable them to act in the aeronautics, space and defense industries. Thus, the course aims to provide the student with the incorporation of a set of learning experiences that enable the formation of a professional with generalist profile critical and reflective, conscious of their role in society and in the aerospace environment, able to contribute to the process local, regional and national development in the engineering field, and become active agent in the social and technological development, acting within the principles of professional ethics.
The demand for these professionals exist but should increase significantly in the coming years. Brazil still has a few specialized industries in the sector, also have few human resources to this specialty. The major input of skilled human resources will facilitate the creation of niche businesses and creating new divisions within existing enterprises, in a virtuous cycle Showtime expansion of the aerospace industry.
Field of Work
The Aerospace Engineer works in the areas of scientific and applied research, developed at research institutes, companies and universities also can operate in various segments of the aviation industry, aviation and high-tech industries. Thus, it is possible to stage national and foreign companies.
The Aerospace Engineering was considered in the last four years, a strategic area for the country. Thus, the trend is that it is specifically promoted. The Brazil currently imports a lot of technology in this sector, a fact that must be reversed over the years.
The Aerospace Engineer will be a very thorough professional that can operate in all sectors of air mobility. Be able to work in aeronautics from the civilian sector to military applications as well as in aerospace proper including launch vehicles and propulsion systems, and atmospheric modeling, design and control of satellites and their subsystems, as well as probes and spacecraft and orbital stations. Also be able to operate in the market overall metal-mechanic, since it will have a close formation with mechanical engineering.
The market is expanding, currently a national shortage in a strategic area for the country. The specific national industrial park is still modest, but with great growth forecasts in the future. Also, it's a very internationalized labor market with diverse opportunities abroad.
