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.

3EECS 151+151LA/LB may be used to fulfill only one requirement.

4Technical electives must include two courses:

  1. EE 118, 143; EECS 151+151LA(3), or EECS 151+151LB(3); and
  2. at least 3 units from the MSE 120 series.

* A minimum of 120 units is required for graduation.
