Systems Engineering Curriculum 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.

Notes

Before reviewing the links, students should find their effective Academic Catalog Year. When clicking any links referenced below that take students to the Academic Catalog Year pages, they should be mindful of which Academic Catalog year is displayed.

  1. MATH 220 may be substituted. MATH 220 is appropriate for students with no background in calculus. 4 of 5 credit hours count towards degree.
  2. 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.
  3. External transfer students take ENG 300.
  4. 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.
  5. CS 124 may be substituted.
  6. 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 (ECON 102 or ECON 103). SE 494 and SE 495 will satisfy a core course requirement and the Campus General Education Advanced Composition requirement.
  7. Students must select one Secondary Field Option (SFO) or they may petition to create their own SFO totaling 12 hours approved by the department. See preapproved SFOs. Courses on these elective lists may only be used to fulfill one curricular requirement.
  8. SE 494 and SE 495 are to be taken based on the student's UIN (Odd UIN is Spring; Even UIN is Fall). These courses also complete the Advanced Composition requirement. All courses in the freshman, sophomore, and junior year should be complete prior to enrollment. Specific prerequisites are: SE 261, SE 290, SE 311, IE 300, IE 310, and TAM 335; or credit or concurrent registration in a SE Design Elective. Must enroll concurrently in SE 495.
  9. Students must select one Engineering Science Elective course totaling 3 hours from a departmentally approved list.
  10. Students must select a Design Elective totaling 3 hours from a departmentally approved list.
