    A lot, you can be anything from a support engineer to an astronaut. Cyrus said it best :D

    Aerospace engineering is a surprisingly broad field. It encompasses topics such as aerodynamics, fluid dynamics, flight dynamics, propulsion, structural statics/dynamics, and astrodynamics. There are jobs in all of those fields. Just to give you an example, one of the aerospace companies in my area has been hiring engineers to do structural analysis on the 787 Dreamliner. Another company is looking for flight test engineers to work on unmanned aerial vehicles. Yet another company has been recruiting engineers to work on military space systems such as satellites and missile defense.

    Aerospace engineering would be sweet!
    If you become one you'll be the one behind the design
    and construction of an aircraft and spacecraft, right?

    It all depends on specifically what you like about space!
