Notes

*A minimum of 120 units is required for graduation.

1 MAT SCI 45L (the 1-unit laboratory component of MAT SCI 45) is encouraged but not required.

2 Choose one of ASTRON 7A, ASTRON 10, BIOLOGY 1A/1AL, BIOLOGY 1B, CHEM 1A/1AL, CHEM 1B, CHEM 3A/3AL, CHEM 3B/3BL, CHEM 4A, CHEM 4B, MCELLBI 32, or PHYSICS 7C. Some of these courses require prerequisites and would therefore be more appropriately taken in a later semester. Students who plan to take MECENG 40 for their Thermodynamics requirement in sophomore year will need to take CHEM 1A/1AL to fulfill their Science Elective, because CHEM 1A/1AL are prerequisites for MECENG 40.

3 ENGIN 7 or COMPSCI 61A (the latter can be taken in the Fall with MAT SCI 45 taken in the Spring)

4 The 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.

5 ENGIN 40 or MEC ENG 40

6 MEC ENG 100, ELENG 120 or ELENG 149

7 CIV ENG 126 or MEC ENG 104

8 ENGIN 178, CIVENG 93 or DATAC100

9 MECENG 132, ELENG C128/MECENG 134
