Notes

* A minimum of 120 units is required for graduation.

Due to the interdisciplinary nature of this major, electives must be selected and approved in consultation with a faculty adviser.

1Chemistry 4A is intended for students majoring in chemistry or a closely related field.

2Two lower division courses in engineering, mathematics or statistics, chosen in consultation with your faculty adviser; options include CS C8, 61A, 61B or 61BL, 61C or 61CL, 70; CE C30/ME C85; E7, 25, 26, 27 (two of E 25, 26, 27 must be completed to count as one course); Math 55; MSE 45+45L; but other courses may also be used if approved by a faculty adviser. Courses used to satisfy the two computer science course requirement may NOT also be used for lower division technical electives. They can only be used to complete one requirement. 

3The Humanities/Social Sciences (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.

4Technical electives must include 16 units of upper division engineering courses, selected with the help of your faculty adviser in order to provide depth in an area of engineering with high mathematical content — typically, most of these courses will come from a single engineering department, but courses that complement each other from different departments are also permissible. Note: IEOR 172 is an alternate course to Statistics 134. Students may not receive credit for both Statistics 134 and IEOR 172. IEOR 172 cannot be used to fulfill engineering unit requirements; it can only be used as a substitution for Stat 134. Engineering courses cannot include: any course taken on a P/NP basis; BioE 100; ChemE 185; CS 195, H195; Des Inv courses (except Des Inv 190E); Engin 125, 157AC, 180; IEOR 172, 185, 186, 190 series, 191, 192, 195; ME 191AC, 190K, 191K.

5Three additional upper division technical courses as follows: One in mathematics, one in statistics and one from either math or statistics from among: Math 105, 113, 118, 123, 125A, 126, 130, 135, 140, 142, 170, 185, 189, and E117; Statistics 135, 150, 151A, 151B, 152, 153, 154, 157, 158.

6Free electives can be any technical or non-technical course, any course of your interest offered by any department. There are no restrictions.

Notes

* A minimum of 120 units is required for graduation.

**A fifth semester is granted to transfer student admits who are missing at least three lower division technical courses, of at least 3 units each, for the Engineering Mathematics & Statistics major when they matriculate to UC Berkeley. Eligible transfer students must contact their ESS Adviser in order to request the fifth semester.

Due to the interdisciplinary nature of this major, electives must be selected and approved in consultation with a faculty adviser.
