Aeronautical & Aerospace Engineering Bursaries 2021 – 2022


Aerospace Engineers develop and test aircraft and spacecrafts. They are also responsible for the design, maintenance and management of R&D for various types of spacecrafts, aircrafts, missiles and satellites. This sector of engineering is divided into 2 branches which overlap: astronautical engineering and aeronautical engineering. These professionals often work for defense contractors or for the government.

In order to pursue a career in this field, Aeronautical Engineers are generally required to have an Engineering degree (this can include electronic/ electrical/ mechanical/ industrial/ computer/ civil engineering qualifications).

Over and above the tertiary qualification, Aeronautical and Aerospace Engineers will need many years of working experience with aerodynamics, aeroacoustics and computational fluid dynamics. A high level of communication skills (both oral and written) is also required, as is team work and keeping up to date with new technology.

The average Aeronautical Engineer earns approximately R360 000/ annum, while Aerospace Engineers earn around R515 000/ annum. If you are looking for bursaries or funding for the Aeronautical/ Aerospace Engineering sector, here are some options for you:
