Notes
* A minimum of 120 units is required for graduation.
Due to the interdisciplinary nature of this major, electives must be selected and approved in consultation with a faculty adviser.
1CHEM 4A is intended for students majoring in chemistry or a closely related field.
2Two lower division courses in engineering, mathematics or statistics, chosen in consultation with your faculty adviser; options include COMPSCI C8, 61A, 61B or 61BL, 61C or 61CL, 70; CIVENG C30/MECENG C85; ELENG 16A, 16B; ENGIN 7, 25, 26, 27 (two of ENGIN 25, 26, 27 must be completed to count as one course); MATH 55; MATSCI 45+45L; but other courses may also be used if approved by a faculty adviser. Courses used to satisfy the two computer science course requirement may NOT also be used for lower division technical electives. They can only be used to complete one requirement.
3The 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.
4Technical electives must include 16 units of upper division engineering courses, selected with the help of your faculty adviser in order to provide depth in an area of engineering with high mathematical content — typically, most of these courses will come from a single engineering department, but courses that complement each other from different departments are also permissible. Engineering courses cannot include: any course taken on a P/NP basis; BIOENG 100; CHMENG 185; COMPSCI 195, H195; DESINV courses (except DESINV 190E); ENGIN 125, 157AC, 180, 185, 187; INDENG 172, 185, 186, 190 series, 191, 192, 195; MECENG 191AC, 190K, 191K. Graded research units (such as H194 or 196) are reviewed on a case by case basis and may be petitioned.
5Three additional upper division technical courses as follows: One in mathematics, one in statistics and one from either math or statistics from among: all upper division Math courses (except MATH C103, 125A, 135, 160, and any course numbered 191 or higher) and ENGIN 117; STAT 135, 150, 151A, 151B, 152, 153, 154, 157, or 158.
6Free electives can be any technical or nontechnical course, any course of your interest offered by any department. There are no restrictions.
