Aviation Week Network's survey reports focus on attracting students to aerospace careers

Aviation Week Network has announced the release of its 2018 Workforce Survey findings, revealing a major effort by companies to support educators in preparing students for lifelong aerospace careers, the company said.

The report cites continued frustration with an inability to attract a diverse talent pool and identifies the universities chosen by aerospace and defense (A&D) companies as “preferred suppliers” and top providers of graduates for hiring.

Aviation Week Network collaborated with the Aerospace Industries Association, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and PwC on the annual study.

Aviation Week Network´s annual Workforce Study, the industry´s single source of demographic and hiring data since 1997, identifies trends in technological challenges, leadership, demographics and ranks the top universities for A&D recruitment.

Aviation Week Network is the largest multimedia information and services provider for the global aviation, aerospace and defense industries that has a database of over 1.7 million professionals around the world.
