The Bachelor of Science in Engineering (General) provides students with skills and knowledge in a wide range of engineering disciplines in order that they contribute and grow in their intended engineering profession. The program is structured so that students are engaged in opportunities to work with faculty and students in multiple engineering disciplines, and train to synthesize and analyze complex interdisciplinary systems that are vital in modern society. It provides students with a modern education that can easily be applied in the industry after graduation.
Students must meet with their academic adviser to prepare an approved study plan of technical elective courses prior to taking such courses. In addition, 3 units of the upper-division writing requirement can be satisfied by taking a university-approved upper-division writing course or set of courses in engineering programs that satisfy this requirement. Undergraduate students are required to meet with their academic adviser every semester during the first year and at least once a year thereafter. They are strongly encouraged to see their academic advisers frequently.
All courses taken in fulfillment of the degree must be taken for a letter grade. All mathematics and physical science courses required for the degree must be completed with a “C” (2.0) or better to count as prerequisite courses to engineering courses, or as credit towards the degree. Graduate courses are not open to undergraduate students without approval of the department chair.

All students at Cal State Fullerton are expected to complete prescribed units of General Education that are made up of courses outside of their chosen disciplines. Students seeking a degree in Engineering have been provided exceptions from some of the General Education requirements. For this reason, it is important that students take the approved G.E. courses for Engineering majors that are found in their Titan Degree Audit (TDA). Additionally, they should confirm the G.E. courses that are required within their specific programs with their respective advisers.
