The graduate finds employment in aeronautical and space industries; in public and private bodies for experimentation in the aerospace field; in aircraft fleet management and maintenance companies; in air-traffic control agencies; in the air force; in industries producing machinery and equipment in which aerodynamics and lightweight structures play a significant role.
Aeronautical engineers are particularly sought after in related fields. In fact, they may be involved in the design of terrestrial or nautical vehicles or large buildings or bridges or even in the design of power plants. Graduates are also in demand in the lightweight construction industry, in the motor industry in the areas of monitoring the mechanical behavior of structures subject to stress.
