Course Flowcharts

The undergraduate students in our department are encouraged to follow an academic timeline that will help expedite their time spent on their degree. These flowcharts illustrate the requirements and availability for each class in the BAE curriculum and serve as a guide to help students and their advisors tailor each semester's class schedule to their individual needs.

Depending on other time constraints, many students find that taking summer courses and/or extending their time at LSU increases their success rate in this challenging engineering curriculum. Periodically visiting with your advisor is recommended.
