Q: What is the name of your STEM career?
Q: What attracted you to this STEM career?
Practicality, societal impact on others’ lives, mateship gained with colleagues and the skills it gives you for other aspects of life, like – “think
like an engineer.”
Q: What is some of the typical work you do in this career?
In aerospace engineering we design, analyse, manufacture aerospace components for installation onto aircraft. We use computer
aided design software to model components and assemblies that are used within the aviation industry. Ensuring these components
are strong enough as well as meet a strict set of requirements set out by the civil aviation safety authority (CASA). On top of this
these components need to manufacturable – we can use metal, plastic, carbon fibre, fabric, etc. Finally they are installed into
aircraft at production line or after market facilities. Further to this the component needs to be maintained through its life so it’s
important that as engineers we design it so that it’s easy to maintain or swap out in future.
Q: What do you love about your job?
Societal impact that we have doing the work that we do. Nothing beats the feeling of a helicopter flying over knowing you had help
in bringing that to life.
