I am also interested in this usage, so tried out the following code, but
it is not doing what I thought I understood from the above.  I wanted
three columns in this Table, first column having Test, the second column
Aerospace Engineering and the third column, the word Blank.  Am I making
a mistake?

\begin{tabular}{|c|p{2cm}|r|} \hline
Test & Aerospace \\ Engineering & Blank \\ \hline
\end{tabular}
