Aerospace engineers have the exciting job of getting to work with airplanes, spacecraft, missiles, rockets, and more! They are involved in the planning and design of aircraft and spacecraft, and also get to help test and manufacture the machines that they create. It was aerospace engineers that made it possible for humans to land on the moon, and there are many aerospace engineers that are currently working to put humans on Mars! Eva Martinez, the Vice-President of Women in Aerospace Canada, trained as an Aeronautical Engineer in the Royal Canadian Air Force. One of her responsibilities during that time was maintaining a fleet of search and rescue planes. You can learn more about Eva and a whole host of other women working in the Aerospace industry at the Ottawa CWSE website!
