The preparation for all the engineering majors being so extensive, most colleges and universities have modified general education patterns for these majors. In the last two years, most courses are in engineering, usually with a concentration in one branch. Concentrations at most schools include aerospace; chemical; civil; electrical; and mechanical. Because engineering is a popular major, most schools and colleges have special application deadlines or screening procedures. Below are some examples of the courses required for the major.
