THE SCIENCE REQUIREMENT


The science requirements for departmental and School of Engineering majors are delineated in the detailed “on each Major Program page; all engineering students should check this section to see which science courses are recommended or required. In general, each program requires a number of specific and elective courses from the list of approved courses shown below. Individually Designed Majors must include at least 17 units from the list that are appropriate for their course of study.

  • AP Credit: Refer to AP chart in the SU Bulletin and your Program Sheet footnotes to determine what is allowed in your program. Check to see that AP/IB/A-Level credit is recorded on your unofficial SU transcript. To confirm approval of AP credit in your SoE major program bring your program sheet and unofficial transcript (screen view is fine) to 135 Huang.
