Note:  It is most important to take Calculus I (Math 1127) and Classical Physics I (Physics 1127) as early as possible, as many following courses require them as prerequisites.

CHEM 1127 and ENGL 1117 can be taken at any time, as they are not prerequisites for other courses.  COMP 2243 should be taken with C or C++ if possible.

It is entirely possible (though not guaranteed) for a student to finish a B.S. Aerospace Engineering degree in 4 years, 2 at RCTC and 2 at the University of Minnesota.

**Note – the University of Minnesota’s CHEN 2001 – Material and Energy Balances is now a fall semester class (no longer offered in the summer) and it is a prerequisite class for the junior sequence.
– If a student transfers to the U of M after the freshman year, they will take the same classes as sophomores in Chemical Engineering and the student should graduate in three years.
– A student transferring after two years will take Physical Chemistry, CHEN 2001, and perhaps a few other classes. It will take the student three years to graduate.
