Aerospace Curriculum 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.
- Course prerequisite chain
- Immediate prerequisite(s) (or concurrent registration allowed if listed in the same semester)
- 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). General Education Elective is taken the other semester. Composition I guidelines can be found at http://catalog.illinois.edu/general-information/degree-general-education-requirements/ under Written Communication Requirement
- AE 442 and AE 443 satisfies the general education advanced composition requirement.
- Technical elective credits totaling 12 hours, selected from dept approved list

The code used to present this flowsheet is based on original work shared by the University at Buffalo School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

I currently work at Boeing as a Structural Analysis Engineer...on the P-8 Poseidon program. This is a 737 developed for the U.S. Navy that is used for maritime reconnaissance and tracking submarine activity in the world’s oceans. Much of what I do expands upon the material I learned in my aerospace structures classes [at Illinois].
