Aerospace systems engineering involves a systems approach to the design, efficient operation and modification of high-tech devices for the aeronautical and defence industries. A key challenge for the development of aerospace systems is the need to be as light-weight as possible, yet highly reliable. Aerospace systems engineers need to understand and control the response of aerospace vehicles to complex interactions between sensors, controllers, actuators and other aircraft subsystems to ensure trouble-free, safe and efficient operations. Aerospace systems engineering principles deal with the complementary design of aircraft subsystems to ensure they work in unison, without conflict and to ensure the high levels of reliability required in aerospace operations.
