Aerospace engineering is the branch of engineering which deals with the research, design, development, construction, testing, of aircraft and spacecraft. It is divided into two major and overlapping branches: aeronautical engineering related with aircrafts in the earth's atmosphere, and astronautical engineering that deals with spacecrafts that operate outside the earth's atmosphere.
