The Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering includes 56 units of required courses in computer engineering/computer science/electrical engineering/general engineering, nine units of elective courses in computer engineering/computer science/electrical engineering, 31 units of foundation courses in mathematics and science, and 42 units of courses (24 unduplicated units) in General Education.
MATH 150A and MATH 270A must be completed with at least a “C” (2.0). All other mathematics and physical science courses required for the degree must be completed with at least a “C minus” (1.7) to count as prerequisite courses to engineering courses or as credit towards the degree. All core courses in the major must be passed with a “C-” (1.7) or better.
Students with a working knowledge of a high-level programming language such as C++ are encouraged to take the Computer Science placement examination to qualify for a CPSC 120 waiver.
The electives shall constitute a coherent body of study consistent with the student’s professional and educational objectives. Students take nine units (12 units if student receives a waiver for CPSC 120) of adviser-approved elective courses. Students may choose the elective courses from a suggested list of courses in computer engineering, computer science and electrical engineering. The electives may also include an adviser-approved free elective.
