Bachelor of Science Degree Requirements

Major Requirements (73-74 units)


Other Degree Requirements


In addition to the major program requirements, every student must also complete the University’s baccalaureate degree requirements such as:

  • American Government and Institutions (PLSI 2 )
  • General Education Requirements (48 units) - Engineering majors are exempt from G.E. Areas A3, C1, the third C1/C2, E, and IC
  • Multicultural and International (MI) - Computer Engineering majors are exempt from the MI requirement
  • Upper-division Writing
  • Sufficient Elective Units to Meet Required Total Units (varies); it is recommended that units in this area be utilized to complete a second major or minor.

A full description of the University’s graduation requirements can be found in the Baccalaureate Degree Requirements .

Total: 123 Units*


*General Education, MI, and Upper-division Writing courses can be double counted with major requirements. These courses include CHEM 3A  (Area B1), BIOL 10  or BIOL 1A  (Area B2), MATH 75  (Area B4), PHIL 1  or PHIL 10  (Area C2), ECON 40  or ECON 50  (Area D2), ECE 186B  (Area IB), and ECE 118  (Area ID). See advisor for details.

Advising Notes


  1. Courses in mathematics, the physical sciences, or engineering taken CR/NC are not counted toward fulfillment of degree requirements in computer engineering.
  2. Computer engineering majors might consider a math minor. (See faculty advisor for details.)
  3. All computer engineering students must consult with their academic advisor at least once each year.
  4. ENGR 101  may be taken instead of MATH 81 .
  5. The prerequisites for ECE 186A  are ECE 124 , ECE 128 , ECE 128L , ECE 141 , ECE 146 , ECE 176  and one course taken concurrently from ECE 174  or ECE 178 .
