Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.
The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
Aerodynamics engineers design and test aircraft, spacecraft, and other aviation and aerospace-related machinery whose performance is affected by its aerodynamic properties (e.g. turbines, helicopter motors,e tc.). Safety, quality standards, and performance standards are some of the many factors that aerodynamics engineers consider when creating designs that adhere to government regulations. Aerodynamics engineers typically work in office settings during normal business hours and are expected to use advanced computer software to simulate and evaluate aircraft. A bachelor's degree may be sufficient depending on the employer, though a master's degree is often preferred.
Job openings for aerodynamics engineers can be found through typical channels such as online job boards like Indeed and LinkedIn. Vacancies can also be found on corporate career websites. The interview will be focused on your technical ability and expertise, as well as your problem-solving ability. Direct experience in a related specialty within aerodynamics is often preferred (e.g. handling, fluid dynamics, etc.), as is operating knowledge of certain software or programming languages. You'll be expected to demonstrate your knowledge of how to run tests, analyze test data, and writing reports. You may also be expected to give recommendations on how to reach certain performance measures.
To prepare for the interview, think of your work experience that's related to the job that you're applying for. For instance, if you don't have direct experience with vehicles, you may want to focus on your experience with wind tunnel test methodology, or any other relevant topic. Regardless, think of times when you used your creativity and understanding of the fundamentals of aerodynamics in order to arrive at a positive outcome so that you can demonstrate your flexibility and ability to overcome challenges. Be prepared to talk about your experience working in a mixed team environment: many companies hire engineers across different disciplines to form a project team. Communication skills will be crucial to your success.
