What Companies can Aerospace Engineers Work for?

If you’re about to embark on your Aerospace Engineering career, you may be starting to consider the kind of aerospace company you could see yourself working for in the future.

And, as the United States boasts the largest aerospace industry in the world, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from.

To help you narrow down your choices and give you some exciting goals to aim for, we’ve put together a list of some of the best aerospace companies in the world that could offer a range of exciting opportunities to an aerospace engineer like you.

But first, what defines an aerospace company?

What is an Aerospace Company?

The term ‘aerospace company’ is incredibly broad and can usually be better defined as an aerospace manufacturer. Aerospace manufacturers ‘research, design, build, test, sell and maintain aircraft parts, missiles, rocks and spacecraft parts.’

These manufacturers are made up of a variety of subsections specialising in different areas of aerospace. This allows you to utilise your specific skills in a section of the industry that best suits your talents.

While all aerospace manufacturers are different and offer different opportunities, there are a few that stand out as being some of the best in the world…

If you’re setting your sights high, these first-class aerospace manufacturers could be the perfect fit for you:


Universally recognisable and ever-evolving, Boeing is one of the most prolific aerospace companies in the world.

Boeing ‘designs, manufactures and sells airplanes, rotorcraft, rockets, satellites’ and more, is an equal opportunity employer offering great benefits to its employees and is a ‘major player in the aerospace industry, known for its continuous innovation and development of new products and technologies.’

Certainly one to aim for if you’re planning on heading to the top.


Remember that giant double-decker plane nicknamed the ‘beluga whale?’. That was created by the world-renowned Airbus, known for its limit-pushing designs and ongoing quest to consistently improve the aerospace industry.

Airbus ‘generates revenue through the sale of its aircraft and related products and services, including maintenance, repair and overhaul.’

As Airbus continues to innovate and grow, they’re on the lookout for skilled aerospace engineers to fulfill a multitude of roles. Could one of them be the right fit for you?

Collins Aerospace

‘Mission: Combining modern design with innovative technology for a best-in-class cabin experience’.

Turning over $10 billion in revenue and going from strength to strength, the Collins Aerospace mission statement sums up its core values and visions for the future of the aerospace industry.

Being relatively newly established (2018), Collins Academy is growing and recruiting skilled aerospace engineers in the process.

Another excellent company choice if you’re aiming for the best.
