ABE Biological Engineering Map Fall 2022
The curriculum sequence mapped below is a sample sequence, as all Grainger Engineering students work with a department academic advisor to achieve their educational goals, specific to their needs and preparation. Before reviewing the maps below, students should find their effective Academic Catalog Year. When clicking any links referenced in the maps below that take students to the Academic Catalog Year pages, they should be mindful of which Academic Catalog year is displayed.
For current students enrolled in academic catalog years prior to 2022-2023, see the previous curriculum maps here.

- MATH 220 may be substituted. MATH 220 is appropriate for students with no background in calculus. 4 of 5 credit hours count towards degree.
- External transfer students take ENG 300.
- 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 UIN is Odd). SE 101 is taken the other semester. Composition I guidelines can be found at Degree and General Education Requirements under Written Communication Requirement.
- Additional coursework, subject to the Grainger College of Engineering restrictions to Free Electives, so that there are at least 128 credit hours earned toward the degree.
- General education: Students must complete the Campus General Education requirements including the campus general education language requirement. One of the SBS courses must be an introductory economics course (ACE 100, ECON 102, or ECON 103). ABE 469 will satisfy the capstone requirement and Campus General Education Advanced Composition requirement.
- 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. See ABE Degree Requirements for details.
- Students must complete 6 hours from the approved list of Biological and Natural Sciences Electives.
- CHEM 232 may be taken for 3 or 4 credit hours. If taken as 4, the extra credit hour counts towards free electives.
