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 121 Computer Science I

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:

  • Student must complete 12 credits of technical, engineering, and MSE electives.
  • Three of these credits need to be an upper division MSE course.
  • Three of these credits need to be in an engineering discipline (ENGR, MSE, ECE, CE, or ME).
  • The other six can come from engineering, math, or science disciplines. of the 12 credits, 6 must be upper division (300- or 400- level).
  • All technical, engineering, and MSE 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.
