Notes
*A minimum of 120 units is required for graduation.
1CHEM 4A is for students intending a major in chemistry or chemical engineering.
2If the prerequisites are met, students may take ENGIN 7 in fall.
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: 15 units of technical electives are required and must be chosen from the approved technical elective list. At least 12 of the 15 units must be upper division. At least 9 of the 12 upper division units must be from MECENGsponsored courses.
Of the 9 units of MECENGsponsored upper division technical electives, at least one course must be a design course selected from the following list:
Additionally, one of the upper division technical elective courses must be taken from the MEsponsored quantitative science courses below, or from the expanded quantitative science list. Note that only the quantitative science courses listed below will count toward the 9 units of MEsponsored upper division courses.
*Although these courses are ENGIN courses, they will count toward the 9 units of upper division MECENGsponsored courses.
Any upper division course taught by mechanical engineering faculty may be used as part of the 9 units of upper division MECENGsponsored courses, including ENGIN 117, ENGIN 128, ENGIN 150, and ENGIN 177. In addition, Students may receive up to three units of upper division MECENGsponsored technical elective credit for work on a research project in either MECENG 196 (Undergraduate Research) or MECENG H194 (Honors Undergraduate Researchrestrictions apply).
Up to three technical elective units can be lower division and can be chosen from any of the following lower division courses: ASTRON 7A, 7B; BIOENG 10; BIOLOGY 1A+1AL, 1B; CHEM 1B, 3A, 3B, 4B; CIVENG 11, 60, 70, 93; COMPSCI C8, 61A, 61B, 61C, 70; DESINV 15, 22 (if taken Fall 2017 or earlier), 90E; EPS 50; ELENG 16B; ENGIN 11; INTEGBI C32; MATH 55; MATSCI 45; MCELLBI 32; PHYSICS 7C; STAT 20, 21.
Technical electives cannot include any course taken on a P/NP basis; courses numbered 24, 39, 84, 88; BIOENG 100; CHMENG 185; COMPSCI C79, 195, H195; DESINV courses (except DESINV 15, 90E, 190E); ENGIN 125, 157AC, 180, 185, 187; INDENG 95, 171 (if taken after Fall 2014), 185, 186, 190 series, 191, 192, 195; MECENG 191AC, 190K, 191K. Note: DESINV 22 will count as a technical elective if taken Fall 2017 or earlier.
5Free electives can be any technical or nontechnical course. A course of your interest offered by any department at UC Berkeley; there are no restrictions.

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