The easiest, most convenient way to track your progress toward your degree requirements is to use a degree worksheet, with guidelines specific to your year of admission. You should bring your worksheet with you whenever you meet with your Engineering Student Services or faculty adviser. From your My Academics page on CalCentral use the Semesters section to help complete your worksheet.  When available, you can also use the Academic Progress Report to help update your Degree Worksheet.

Joint majors:

The joint major programs are designed for students who wish to undertake study in two major areas of engineering in order to qualify for employment in either field, or for positions in which competence in two fields is required. These curricula include the core concepts in each of the major fields. Although they may require increased course loads, they can be completed in four years, and the joint major is shown on the student’s transcript. Joint majors lie at the intersection between two fields and cannot be cataloged in a specific bin; therefore, they are not ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) accredited programs* (note that there are many highly ranked engineering programs, such as Bioengineering at Berkeley, that are not ABET accredited). However, joint majors (like all engineering majors at Berkeley) are, and will continue to be, accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

*Note: Students who were admitted to Berkeley Fall 2016 or earlier who wish to pursue a joint major will graduate from an ABET accredited program (other than BioE/MSE which was never ABET accredited). Refer to your ESS or faculty adviser for details.
