Within Mathematica you can call WolframAlpha

WolframAlpha["e^2 x cos(3x)", IncludePods -> {"Indefinite Integral"},
PodStates -> {"Step-by-step solution", "Show all steps"}]

Compare with

Integrate[E^2 x Cos[3 x], x] // Simplify

Although Mathematica may occassionally employ integration solutions that are obscure, many of the problems I have done in student assistant have yeilded useful solutions.
