NPRE 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
- 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). A course for free 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.
- Students may elect to take CS 125 in place of CS 101, and TAM 211 in place of TAM 210. The extra hour will be applied toward the Professional Concentration Area electives.
- Consideration for the Free Elective during Freshman year should be given to NPRE 101 or taking courses to help fulfill a minor.
- Students in the Plasma and Fusion Science Eng Professional Concentration Area may elect to take PHYS 325 in place of TAM 212. Further, students in this concentration may elect to take both PHYS 325 and PHYS 326 in place of TAM 210 and TAM 212, which helps to facilitate a PHYS minor.
- Students in the Power, Safety and Envrionment and in the Plasma and Fusion Science Eng Professional Concentration Areas must take either TAM 335 OR ME 310 and NPRE 421. Students in the Radiological, Medical and Instrumentation Applications Concentration are not required to take these courses but may instead use the hours to take electives in their chosen area.
- Either TAM 335 Introductory Fluid Mechanics or ME 310 Fundamentals of Fluid Dynamics may be taken.
