Notes

1Chemistry 4A is intended for students majoring in chemistry 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.

3A total of 9 upper division technical elective units are required. These must include 6 units of upper division mechanical engineering courses, one of which must be from the following list: ME 101, 110, C117, 119, 130, 135, 146, 165, C176 or Engin 128. In addition, 3 units must be from the MSE 120 series. Technical electives cannot include any course taken on a P/NP basis; ME 191AC, 190K, 191K. Students may receive up to 3 units of technical elective credit for work on a research project in ME H194 or ME 196.

* A minimum of 120 units is required for graduation.
