Notes

1Chemistry 4A is for students majoring in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering or a closely related field.

2The 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.

3Engineering Breadth: 9 units must be completed from the following list BioE 10, 102; CE 11, C30, 60, 70, 155; Des Inv 15, Engin 15, 25, 26, 27, 28, 45, 45L, 115; EE 16A, 16B; MSE 111, ME 40, C85, 132.

4Students must take a minimum of six courses from the list below:

  • IEOR 115-Industrial and Commercial Data Systems
  • IEOR 130-Methods of Manufacturing Improvement
  • IEOR 150-Production Systems Analysis
  • IEOR 151-Service Operations Design and Analysis
  • IEOR 153-Facilities Planning and Design
  • IEOR 166-Decision Analysis
  • IEOR 170-Human Factors for Engineering Design
  • IEOR 171-Introduction to Design of Human Work Systems and Organization

5A course in Computer Programming must be completed: CS 9C, 9F, 9G, or 61A. CS 9C is a prerequisite for CS 9G.  

Additional requirements/Notes:

  1. IEOR 172 is an alternative course for Statistics 134. In semesters when both are offered, we recommend you take IEOR 172. Students may not receive credit for both Statistics 134 and IEOR 172.
  2. IEOR 95, 185, 186, 190 series courses, 191, 192, and 195 cannot be used to fulfill any engineering requirements (units, courses, technical electives or otherwise).

6Free electives can be any technical or non-technical course. A course of your interest offered by any department at Cal; there are no restrictions.

7IND ENG 173 replaced IND ENG 161. Students will receive no credit for IND ENG 173 after taking IND ENG 161.

 
 

* A minimum of 120 units is required for graduation.
