Aerospace engineering is the primary branch of engineering concerned with the design, construction and science of aircraft and spacecraft. It is divided into two major and overlapping branches: aeronautical engineering and astronauticalengineering. The former deals with craft that stay within Earth's atmosphere, and the latter with craft that operate outside it.
Aerospace Engineering deals with the design, construction, and application of the science behind the forces and physical properties of aircraft, rockets, flying craft, and spacecraft. The field also covers their aerodynamic characteristics and behaviors, airfoil, control surfaces, lift, drag, and other properties. Aerospace engineering is not to be confused with the various other fields of engineering that go into designing these complex craft. For example, the design of aircraft avionics, while certainly part of the system as a whole, would rather be considered electrical engineering, or perhaps computer engineering. The landing gear system on an aircraft may fall into the field of mechanical engineering, and so forth. It is typically a large combination of many disciplines that makes up aeronautical engineering.
While aeronautical engineering was the original term, the broader "aerospace" has superseded it in usage, as flight technology advanced to include craft operating in outer space. Aerospace engineering, particularly the astronautics branch, is referred to colloquially as "rocket science".

Aerospace Engineering (AE) from:
The department of Aerospace Engineering (AE) has a well-defined vision of positioning KFUPM into a ‘leading and guiding’ institution by developing a full range of aerospace degrees (undergraduate, graduate, and associate degrees) and conducting original research programs of the highest quality for meeting the Kingdom’s and region’s needs for education, manpower, and technical expertise in AE and related fields.
Moreover, the department aims at providing high quality education at international level in AE, well grounded in the fundamental principles of engineering, in order to inspire and prepare students for leadership positions in many job openings in reputed organizations such as Royal Saudi Air force (RSAF), Saudi-Aramco Aviation and for some off-set programs and private aerospace companies.
