Single major

When you’re accepted to the College of Engineering, you’ll be admitted directly to one of the bachelor of science programs listed below. Each one will make you think and work harder than you’ve ever thought possible. So explore each major and think carefully about how it reflects your own interests and skill sets. If you’re going to be working that hard, you might as well love what you’re doing.

If you’re a prospective freshman who is still exploring engineering, you can apply to the Engineering-Undeclared option.

Freshman and transfer applicants apply to Berkeley Engineering as single majors (for freshman applicants, Undeclared is also an option.) Students admitted as freshmen may apply for a joint major or dual major after spending one year at Berkeley. Students admitted as junior transfers who can show, after one semester at Berkeley, that they can complete a joint major in the time allotted, and who meet GPA requirements, should consult with their Engineering Student Services adviser about the possibility of applying to a joint program.

Detailed curricula

for all of our majors can be found in the College of Engineering Undergraduate Guide as well as the degree worksheet section of our website.
