Elective Subjects with Engineering Content
Students are required to take four Restricted Electives selected from subjects offered within or outside CEE to form a coherent program of study under supervision by CEE faculty.
Departmental Program Units That Also Satisfy the GIRs
Unrestricted Electives
Total Units Beyond the GIRs Required for SB Degree
No subject can be counted both as part of the 17-subject GIRs and as part of the 180 units required beyond the GIRs. Every subject in the student's departmental program will count toward one or the other, but not both.
* Alternate prerequisites are listed in the subject description.
(1) To satisfy the CI-M component of the Communication Requirement, students must take two of the department's CI-M subjects (1.011, 1.013, 1.092) or, if appropriate, take one Course 1 CI-M subject and petition the Subcommittee on the Communication Requirement to substitute one CI-M from another science or engineering field. The outside CI-M must fit into the coherent program of electives approved by the student's academic advisor.
