Preparation for the all the Engineering majors is, therefore, most colleges and universities have modified general education patterns. In the last two years, most courses are in engineering, usually with a concentration in one branch. Concentrations typically include aerospace, chemical, civil, electrical, and/or mechanical. A complete list of concentrations offered could be found in the catalog of the campus you choose to attend. 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.
