From the Paper:

"In college, there is a broad range of classes that have to be taken; this leads to taking more than four years to complete college. College education is based around mathematics and science. Engineers also have to take some liberal arts classes, humanities classes, environmental, computers, and some shop classes (VGM’s C.E. 101). The first two years of college are usually spent taking general classes, the last two or three years are spent specializing, if they choose to specialize (Western Michigan University). There are more than twenty-five different types of engineering (Dell 195-198). There is no need to specialize into a certain field if it is not desired. A few of the different kinds of engineering are: architectural, biomedical, civil, electrical, and mechanical (Top 300 Jobs 76-79)."
