Satellite Engineer Jobs

Satellite Engineer Overview


Satellite Engineers design and construct satellites for use in the military, communications and scientific research. These engineers are very highly paid and educated, often working in clearance-required facilities to build the next level of technology. Satellite Engineers must not only be knowledgeable in the construction and design of satellites but also in the research of new satellite and propulsion technologies. Similar technology jobs include positions such as engineering technicians.

Satellite Engineer Educational Requirements


A Satellite Engineer must obtain at minimum a bachelor's degree in aerospace engineering or a related field. More often than not, Satellite Engineers have master's or even doctoral degrees, particularly those involved in research. In addition to a formal degree, Satellite Engineers must also have an eagerness to learn and stay on top of new developments in their field and related fields, have an eye for detail and be creative enough to discover new breakthroughs in aerospace science. Previous experience in engineering and related practices is a plus that will give applicants an advantage over the competition.

Satellite Engineer Job Market


Due to the high amount of education required to become a Satellite Engineer, the job market is not as populated as others in design and research fields. There are currently 83,000 employed Satellite Engineers; precise estimates are difficult to come by as Satellite Engineers are often lumped together with aerospace engineers. As the need for satellites increases with more television and cellphone usage, the demand for skilled Satellite Engineers will increase as well. The job market is projected to grow at a rate of 7 percent by 2022.

Satellite Engineer Salary


Satellite Engineers are highly paid, with even interns pulling in as much as $15 an hour. For fully certified engineers, the pay ranges from $58,000 entry wages to as much as $99,000 or more for experienced engineers. Satellite Engineers who specialize in specific areas of Satellite Engineering can earn as much as $123,000 per year. The field is highly lucrative for those who put in the time to obtain the job.
