Highlighted courses are offered only in the semester in which they are listed.

COMPSCI Elective:

The following courses fulfill the computer science elective requirement:

  • CS 115 (Intro to C)
  • CS 117 (Intro to C++)
  • CS 119 (Intro to Java)
  • CS 120 (Intro to Programming Concepts)
  • CS 125 (Intro to Computer Science)

Disciplinary Lens Courses:

Students need to take one DLL, one DLV, and two DLS courses. DLS courses must come from two different fields.

Technical, Engineering, and MSE Electives:

  • Students must complete 12 credits of technical and engineering electives
  • Six of these credits need to be in engineering disciplines (ENGR, MSE, ECE, CE, or MBE)
  • The other 6 can come from engineering, math or science disciplines
  • Of the 12 credits, 6 must be upper division (300‐ or 400‐level)
  • All technical and engineering electives must be approved by the student’s advisor

Grade Policy:

A grade of C- or above is required for all prerequisite courses and for all upper division courses within the student’s major.
