I know this can be said about most jobs, but I think Artificial Intelligence will be used as a tool instead of a replacement.

cos a robot can't get right into the small parts of a helicopter (for example), and if it could it would take way to long to program

Some tasks like automated FEA and optimization probably can be automated over the next 20 years, but I believe inherent design and optimization for specified tasks will still be done by people. Also considering the field is relatively small compared to others, there is less of an incentive right now to dedicate development tools towards advanced AIs and such for it.
