The paper selected English articles between 2000 and 2012 published in 20 journals of aerospace engineering from Web of Science in 2012 as a data source. With the aid of CiteSpaceII, a kind of information visualization software, the paper analyzed Chinese research institution co-occurrence network, noun phrases and key words co-occurrence network and evolution of knowledge map of aerospace engineering. And then the paper applied the mapping knowledge domain methods to analysis of Chinese research institutions collaboration, research hotspots, knowledge base, research fronts and trends of aerospace engineering. Co-occurrence network of institutions of aerospace engineering demonstrates that there are many institutions in the aerospace engineering field but very little collaboration with other institutions. And hypersonic inlet and tangent orbit have been both research fronts of national aerospace engineering since 2000. ? (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
