Academic Program Model

Associate In Engineering Science (AES.ENGR)

This curriculum is designed for students wanting to pursue a bachelor's degree in Engineering at the Univeristy of Illinois Champaign/Urbana. The University of Illinois requires specific minimum GPAs for entry into the various majors of engineering. Consult a counselor or academic advisor before registering.

Upon completion of this course sequence, engineering science students will receive an associate in engineering science degree.

Only courses with a course number of 100 or higher meet graduation requirements for the AES degree.

This program follows Math Pathway #4. Math requirements for a specific major may vary from one institution to another. Please consult with an academic counselor or academic advisor to confirm the pathway that is applicable to your major and transfer institution.
