Notes

For detailed curriculum for each of the Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences Options, refer to Information for Current Undergraduate Students.

1The Humanities/Social Science (H/SS) requirement includes two approved reading and composition courses and four additional approved courses, with which a number of specific conditions must be satisfied. Reading and Composition "A" and "B" must be completed by no later than the end of the sophomore year. The remaining courses may be taken at any time during the program. See engineering.berkeley.edu/hss for complete details and a list of approved courses.

2Students must complete one course about engineering ethics or social implications of technology. This may be fulfilled by completing one of the following courses: BioE 100; CS 195, H195; ENERES C100; Engin 125, 157AC; Info 88A; IAS 157AC; ISF 100D, 100G. BioE 100, ERG C100, Engin 125, 157AC; IAS 157AC, ISF 100D, and 100G fulfill both a Humanities/Social Science requirement and the EECS ethics/social implication of technology requirement.

NOTE: Effective Fall 2013, CS H195 no longer fulfills a Humanities/Social Science requirement.

3Students must complete a minimum of 20 units of upper division EECS courses. One course must provide a major design experience, and be selected from the following list: EE C106A (formerly C125), C106B, C128, 130, 140, 143, C149, 192; CS C149, 160, 162, 164, 169, 184, 186; EECS 149, 151 and 151LA (must take both), 151 and 151LB (must take both).

4Students must complete a minimum of 45 units of Engineering coursework. The 45 units of engineering courses cannot include: any course taken on a P/NP basis; courses numbered 24, 39, 84; BioE 100; ChemE 185; CS C79, 195, H195; Des Inv courses (except Des Inv 15, 22, 90E, 190E); Engin 125, 157AC; IEOR 95, 172, 185, 186, 190 series, 191, 192, 195; ME 191AC, 190K, 191K.

5Free electives can be any technical or non-technical course. A course of your interest offered by any department at Cal; there are no restrictions.

6Students must complete one course from the following list: Astronomy 7A, 7B; Biology 1A and 1AL (must take both), 1B; Chem 1A and 1AL (must take both), 1B, 3A and 3AL (must take both), 3B and 3BL (must take both), 4A, 4B; MCB 32 and 32L (must take both); Physics 7C; or an upper division course of 3 units or more in Astronomy, Chemistry, Earth and Planetary Science (other than 170AC), Integrative Biology, Molecular Cell Biology, Physics, or Plant & Microbial Biology. This requirement is listed in the freshman year curriculum, but many of the options would not be appropriate for a first year student. Complete this requirement in the semester when it is most appropriate to do so (i.e., take Physics 7C after completing Physics 7B).  Your ESS or Faculty Adviser can help guide your selection on this requirement.

* A minimum of 120 units is required for graduation.
