A little bit confused on what to take for freshman year

<p>So the curriculum for a freshman chemical engineer at my school is- University Experience, Basic Economics, Introduction to Chemical Engineering 1, General Chemistry 1, Composition and Rhetoric, and Calculus 1.
I have placed out of calc 1 and comp because of AP scores. I have also taken chem 1 as a DE class my senior year but I feel like the class was way too easy. I think I'll take calc 2 instead of 1 (but I place out of this too... should I jump into calc 3 or just stick with calc 2?), and retake chem 1. I have no clue what to do for a 3 credit class to fill comp though. Any suggestions? I'm afraid to wait until orientation because it is only a few days before actual class starts.</p>

<p>If you placed out of Calc 2, go take Calc 3. Calc 2 and Calc 3 both build up on Calc 1. Calc 2 covers more integration techniques as well as sequences and series; Calc 3 develops calculus in several dimensions. </p>

<p>I would substitute another (non-science) general education requirement for composition.</p>

<p>The only other non-science class that I don’t already have credit for is Scientific and Technical Communication. Does anyone know exactly what this class is?</p>

<p>What does the course description say?</p>

<p>Why not take a more advanced English class instead of the comp?</p>

<p>Call the ChemE office and see if they have a course list for your major. It’s a list that states all the classes you’ll need to take in order to get your degree. It may also give you some clue as to what non-science class to take- a history, a philosophy, or a higher level english class.</p>

<p>Scientific and Technical Communication… well, it sounds like a class where you’ll learn to communicate scientifically and technically. :stuck_out_tongue: Check out the course description.</p>
