NE Engineering Focuses
Engineering Focus (twenty-four units): Students are required to select all 6 engineering electives from within one single major to constitute an engineering focus, except where noted below in the Bioengineering focus, and the note on ENG courses. To ensure you meet ABET requirements, all 6 electives must be engineering courses, which includes MATS. Preapproved accepted courses of each of the five focuses are listed below.
We also accept graduate level courses (especially in Materials Science) germane to each area. A petition must be submitted for undergraduate and graduate courses not on this list. Nano 201 is not an optional graduate level course since it is the same material as NANO 101.
The courses listed here other than NANO are under the control of other departments. All have prerequisites. Each student is responsible for determining the prerequisites, when the courses are to be offered, and making a schedule of taking the courses that fits into his or her own graduation plan.
Bioengineering: To allow for unforeseen class scheduling conflicts and to comply with the prerequisites of some Bioengineering courses, students are required to take only four of the six courses in one major, with the other two outside their chosen engineering focus.
BENG 100, 101, 103B*, 109, 110, 112A, 112B, 122A*, 130, 186A
*BENG 103B requires CENG101A. BENG 122A requires MAE 140. Both prerequisites are accepted as part of the 24-unit Bioengineering focus.
CENG 100, 101A, 101B, 101C, 102, 113, 120
ECE 100, 103, 107, 109, 134, 135A, 135B, 136L, 138L, 139, 183, 187
MAE 101A or CENG 101A, MAE 101B, 101C, 105, 110A, 113, 130A, 130B, 131A, 143A , 143B, 160, 161, 168
NANO 108, 140, 148, 150, 156, 158, 161, 164, 168
Optional electives for MATS Focus: up to two of the six courses can be selected from the ME focus without petition
ENG 100A/L or ENG 100B/L: Teams in Engineering Service One four-unit technical elective is approved for completion of ENG 100A and ENG 100L or ENG 100B and ENG 100L. A student must petition before taking the courses to get a second four-unit technical elective of ENG 100A and ENG 100L or ENG 100B and ENG 100L or two more quarters of ENG 100L. A written summary must be submitted with the petition and must include details of the completed project and how taking a second quarter of ENG 100 will be beneficial for the project.
