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 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 3 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.
