Notes

* A minimum of 120 units is required for graduation.

1The Humanities/Social Sciences (H/SS) requirement includes two approved Reading & Composition (R&C) courses and four additional approved courses, with which a number of specific conditions must be satisfied. R&C courses must be taken for a letter grade (C- or better required). The first half (R&C Part A) must be completed by the end of the freshman year; the second half (R&C Part 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.

2The Basic Science Elective cannot be fulfilled with an exam score. Choose one course from the following: CIVENG 70,  BIOLOGY 1B, CHEM 1B

3Engineering Fundamentals - Choose one course from the following:

  • Thermodynamics: ENGIN 40 or MECENG 40
  • Solid Mechanics: MECENG 104 or CIVENG 126 (students cannot receive credit for both MECENG 104 and CIVENG 126)
  • Data Science/Organization: COMPSCI C100 or EECS 127

4CEE Applications - Nine units chosen from the following: CIVENG 103, 111, 120, 155, 175, or 191.

5Free electives can be any technical or non-technical course, any course of your interest offered by any department. There are no restrictions.

6CEE Extensions - Nine units chosen from upper division CIVENG courses not being counted toward other major requirements. Students may use up to three units of CIVENG graduate courses numbered 200-295, taken Fall 2017 or later, toward their CEE Extensions units. Students must have a technical GPA of 3.0 or higher to obtain permission to enroll in CIVENG graduate courses. Students may receive up to three units of credit toward their CEE Extensions units for work on a research project in CIVENG H194 (Honors Undergraduate Research).

7Capstone Design - One course chosen from the following: CIVENG 105, 112, 122N+122L, 123N+123L, 153, 179, 180, 186.

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 Civil Engineering major when they matriculate to UC Berkeley. Eligible transfer students must contact their ESS Adviser in order to request the fifth semester.
