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.
The associate in arts degree requires the complete of 64 credit hours. The sample course sequence below includes the required 64 credit hours plus additional courses recommended for this major.
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.
Students will study the writing process by reading essays illustrating a variety of rhetorical strategies, analyzing texts, and writing, revising, and editing short essays. Course is for students who have assessed into developmental English, receiving supplemental instruction for course completion.
Focuses on the nature and method of economics, basic supply and demand analysis, national income accounting, business cycles, inflation and unemployment, fiscal policy, money and banking, and monetary policy.
Differential and integral calculus of elementary functions of one variable, such as polynomial, rational, radical, trigonometric, inverse trigonometric, exponential and logarithmic functions, will be covered. Applications include rates of change, optimization, curve sketching and area. A graphing calculator is required. Ask instructor for calculator recommendations.
This course provides an introduction to engineering design and graphics, including design problems, sketching, dimensioning, tolerancing, multi-view orthographic representations, auxiliary views, section views, and working drawings. Drafting equipment and workbook are required. CAD software is used in this course.
A continuation of Calculus I with emphasis on different methods of integration and applications, L` Hôpitals Rule, Sequences, series, Power series, Taylor series and Maclaurin series. A graphing calculator is required. Ask instructor for calculator recommendations.
Continuation of the General principles of chemistry for students majoring in chemistry, engineering or science professions. Topics include solids/liquids, solutions, kinetics, equilibrium, thermodynamics and electrochemistry.
Introduction to the programming language C. Fundamental principles, concepts, and methods of computing with emphasis on calculus-based problem-solving techniques and applications from engineering and physical science.
A first course in linear algebra covering linear systems, matrices, determinants, vector spaces, inner product spaces, and eigenvalues and eigenvectors, including proofs of theorems and propositions in each topic.
A continuation of analytic geometry and Calculus II. The focus is on solid analytic geometry, vectors, partial derivatives, line, volume and surface integrals in various coordinate systems, and vector fields. A graphing calculator is required. Ask instructor for calculator recommendations.
