Businesses in airline manufacturing and flight control, among others, may hire students who have studied aviation. This field deals with the practical aspects of air travel, such as design, use and environmental impact. It also includes study in engineering and physics.

The PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) is a doctoral or post-graduate degree. PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy), and PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways. To receive a PhD a student must demonstrate original research in their chosen field of study, produce a dissertation on that research, and defend their dissertation in front of other experts.
