Bachelor’s degree in aerospace or mechanical engineering, or related degreed technical fields
Airframe design engineers serve as the point of contact for problem-solving and developing efficient aircraft structures. To do this, design engineers incorporate improvements using CATIA software with emphasis on 3D modeling and drafting. They coordinate with various technical disciplines such as manufacturing, tooling, structural integrity, and aerodynamics. They work closely with a team to support design interpretation, investigate and respond to conflicts when prototypes are being assembled, and continually participate in the development and improvement process of aircraft.
