2016-17 Approved School of Engineering Breadth Courses

Find below links to SoE-approved courses to fulfill 2016-17 Math, Science, Technology in Society, and Engineering Fundamentals requirements for School of Engineering majors. See linked files for more information on which math and/or science courses to take and when.
  • Math Courses 2016-17-- Note: For students who elect to take the MATH 50 series but would like to gain experience in MATLAB, the 4-week course CME 192 is offered A, W, or S quarters.
  • Science Courses 2016-17 -- Note: ENGR 31 will not be offered 2016-17 or 2017-18
  • Engineering Fundamentals Courses 2016-17 
  • Technology in Society Courses 2016-17: See chart and notes below. Recommendation: Take your TiS course PRIOR to your final quarter as a BS student: Only a few courses are offered each quarter that satisfy TiS and your choice may fill up and be unavailable to you, especially spring quarter courses.
Petitioning to Use Higher-Level Courses for SoE Requirements: It is possible to substitute a higher-level course for a School of Engineering basic requirement (math, science, or Engineering fundamental) via SoE Petition to Deviate. We encourage students to take/use a higher-level course if taking the introductory course would mean repeating material already learned and tested. For instance, if you are an ME major who has already taken ME 210, there is no point in going backwards and taking ENGR 40M; instead you could substitute a course such as EE 102A. (Note that the three ENGR Fundamental courses must cover three different areas of engineering).

Course Chart for the TiS Requirement Note: CE and MS&E majors must choose from among the courses marked “X” in the major columns. Students in other majors may choose from any of the following courses, although only BMC, CS majors in the Biocomputation track, and BME majors may use HUMBIO 174 (the ethics component in this class is applicable to future medical doctors, not to other engineers), & CS majors have priority in CS 181W.  2016-17 Technology in Society Important: You must use a course that is on the approved list the year you take it*. For example, if you took ENGR 129 when it was offered and on the list in 2014-15, it is still allowed to count as TiS. Conversely, if you took ME 120 or PUBLPOL 122 last year, it will not count as fulfilling TiS because neither has not been approved for TiS since 2013-14. WIM Note: Check the program sheet of your major program to see which course(s) fulfill WIM: The listing below indicating WIM just means that the course fulfills WIM for majors that allow it to be used.
