Aeronautical engineering and avionics engineering are similar, however avionics engineering concentrates on the electronics side of things. The term "aeronautical engineering" was coined to define the field for the first time. As flying technology has advanced to include vehicles that operate in space, the broader term "aerospace engineering" has emerged. Aerospace engineering, particularly the astronautics branch, is referred to as "rocket science" by many people. Flight vehicles are subjected to rigorous conditions, such as variations in atmospheric pressure and temperature, as well as structural pressures on vehicle components.
