ABE Agricultural Engineering Map

The curriculum sequence mapped below is a suggested sequence, as all Grainger Engineering students work with a department academic advisor to achieve their educational goals, specific to their needs and preparation.

Static version of curriculum map available here.

  • Course prerequisite chain
  • Immediate prerequisite
  • Credit or concurrent registration required
  • Concurrent registration required
  • Postrequisite course sequence


  • RHET 105 (or an alternative Composition I sequence) is taken either in the first or second semester of the first year, according to the student's UIN (Spring if your UIN is Odd). SE 101 is taken the other semester.

  • ABE 469 satisfies the general education advanced composition requirement.
  • Students can take TAM 210 or TAM 211. The extra hour of credit for this course may be used to help meet free elective requirements.
  • Biological and natural sciences elective. Students must complete 6 hours from the approved list of Biological and Natural Sciences Electives.
  • Students can choose from CEE 202, IE 300, ABE 440, or STAT 400
  • Students can choose from TAM 335, ChBE 421, or ME 310
  • Agricultural and biological engineering technical elective. Students must complete 15 hours of Technical Electives, chosen in consultation with an advisor. At least 8 hours must be Agricultural and Biological Engineering Technical Electives.
