Job Description for Aerospace Systems Engineer

Aerospace systems engineers work primarily in two areas of employment: astronautical, which deals with spacecraft, rocket propulsion systems, and other space-related matters; and aeronautical, or terrestrial aircraft, ranging from small airplanes to large jets, fighter planes, missile guidance systems, and other Earth-bound flight operations. Much of the same training and education is required for both, as is additional education dedicated to the area in which they specialize.

Know the requirements associated with your project. Know how each requirement will be verified. If a requirement references another document, then go to that document and learn all the requirements within it. You will be responsible for those. Only sentences with the word "shall" are a requirement unless otherwise specified. Understand the outline structure of the requirements document they help clarify the scope of the requirement. Put a requirements section in each document that is used in some fashion to verify a requirement (for example, include a requirements section in test plans test procedures and test reports. It is best to a requirement right into the section(s) in a test procedure in which it will be verified.
