How hard is it to design a wing?

I know little about aerodynamics, but I imagine it would mostly just be plugging numbers into equations.

design a wing for what?
If you already have a wing model and just need to know its characteristics, sure you could plug and chug.
If you want to design a new form or whatever, you need to model the whole thing, simulate, make prototypes, run trials, analyze data, improve initial design and so on until you reach a satisfactory design.

But that's not a job for an "engineer" with a mere BSc

Design one from scratch, but to keep things relatively simple it would just be a glider i think - im smart enough to be worrying about fuel lines and control systems.

Do you know what I could use to model potential design? Would Solidworks be practical?

anyone can build a bridge, it takes an engineer to just barely build a bridge.

A wing that just works wouldn't be too hard. But does this wing work well? Is it held up to any safety standards to commercial use? There are alot of questions.

If you throw a brick fast enough, it will fly
