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.

3Students must take one course with ethics content. This may be fulfilled within the Humanities/Social Studies Electives requirement by taking one of the following courses: Anthropology 156B; BioE 100; Engineering 125, 157AC; Environmental Science, Policy and Management 161, 162; Geography 31; IAS 157AC; Interdisciplinary Studies 100E; Letters and Sciences 160B; ME 191AC; Philosophy 2, 104, 107; Sociology 116.

4Technical elective units must include at least 6 units of upper-division Mechanical Engineering courses and 6 units of upper-division Nuclear Engineering courses. Students may receive up to three units of technical elective credit for graded research in ME H194, ME 196 or NE H194. Note: Technical electives cannot include any course taken on a P/NP basis; ME 191AC, 190K, 191K.

* A minimum of 120 units is required for graduation.
