Individuals who want a general academic program and who may not be sure what they want to do usually choose a four-year college or university. Such a program lays the foundation for more advanced studies and professional work. Four-year colleges and universities offer bachelor's degrees (the B.A. and B.S.) in most areas in the arts and sciences, such as English literature, foreign languages, history, economics, political science, biology, zoology, chemistry, and in many other fields.

In order to work with the complex, high-tech equipment, such as that found in the aerospace industry, participation in a formal training program is required. Community colleges and 4-year universities often provide such advanced manufacturing training programs. While some jobs may require short training programs of only a few days or weeks, other jobs require a two-year Associates Degree or even a four-year Bachelor's Degree. These programs may focus on engineering, electrical and mechanical systems, hydraulics, pneumatics, or other technologies, depending on the specific program.
