Total Units Beyond the GIRs Required for SB Degree 198
No subject can be counted both as part of the 17-subject GIRs and as part of the 198 units required beyond the GIRs. Every subject in the student's departmental program will count toward one or the other, but not both.
Notes
*Alternate prerequisites are listed in the subject description. 
(1) Either 10.28, or one of 10.26, 10.27, or 10.29 must be taken as a Departmental Requirement and cannot also be used to satisfy the Laboratory Requirement within Restricted Electives.
(2) Students may substitute 10.01 Ethics for Engineers.
