General Institute Requirements (GIRs) Subjects
Science Requirement 6
Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences Requirement 8
Restricted Electives in Science and Technology (REST) Requirement [satisfied by the mathematics requirement in the Departmental Program] 2
Laboratory Requirement [satisfied by 6.01 and 6.02 together in the Departmental Program] 1

Communication Requirement  
The program includes a Communication Requirement of 4 subjects:
2 subjects designated as Communication Intensive in Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (CI-H); and 2 subjects designated as Communication Intensive in the Major (CI-M).
 
PLUS Departmental Program Units
Subject names below are followed by credit units and by prerequisites, if any (corequisites in italics).
Required Subjects 36
6.01 Introduction to EECS I, 12, 1/2 LAB; Physics II (GIR)
6.02 Introduction to EECS II, 12, 1/2 LAB; 6.01, 18.03*
6.UAT and 6.UAP Undergraduate Advanced Project, 12(1)
Restricted Electives 132–144
1. Two mathematics subjects (also satisfies REST requirement):
(a) Either 18.03 or 18.06 (alternatively 18.700)
   and
(b) Either 6.041 (alternatively 18.440) or 6.042J. Students in Course 6-1 must select 6.041 (or 18.440); students in Course 6-3 must select 6.042J.
2. One department laboratory:
One subject selected from the undergraduate laboratory subjects 6.100–6.182 or a departmental list of CS laboratory subjects; students in Course 6-3 must select a CS laboratory subject. Students in Course 6-1 or 6-2 who take both 6.021J and 6.022J may use 6.022J to satisfy the department laboratory requirement.
3. Three/four foundation subjects:
(a) Students in Course 6-1 must take three subjects from the EE foundation list: 6.002, 6.003, 6.004, 6.007.
(b) Students in Course 6-3 must take the three subjects in the CS foundation list: 6.004, 6.005, 6.006.
(c) Students in Course 6-2 must take four subjects from the EECS foundation list (6.002–6.007), with two chosen from the EE foundation list and two from the CS foundation list (6.004 may be counted under either EE or CS).
4. Three header subjects:
(a) Students in Course 6-1 must take three subjects from the EE header list: 6.011, 6.012, 6.013, 6.021J.
(b) Students in Course 6-3 must take the three subjects in the CS header list: 6.033, 6.034, 6.046J.
(c) Students in Course 6-2 must take three subjects from the EECS header list (6.011, 6.012, 6.013, 6.021J, 6.033, 6.034, 6.046J), with at least one chosen from the EE header list and at least one from the CS header list.
5. Two subjects from a departmental list of advanced undergraduate subjects.
To complete the required Communication-Intensive subjects in the major, students must take one of the following CI-M subjects as a restricted elective in categories 2 or 4 above by the end of the third year: 6.021J, 6.025J, 6.033, 6.101, 6.111, 6.115, 6.129J, 6.131, 6.141J, 6.152J, 6.161, 6.163, 6.182, or 6.805. 6.UAT/6.UAP or 6.UAT/6.UAR typically constitutes the second CI-M. Students may also take 6.UAT plus a second CI-M undergraduate laboratory subject (6.101, 6.111, 6.115, 6.131, 6.141J, 6.152J, 6.161, 6.163, 6.182) to fulfill the CI-M component of the Communication Requirement.
Departmental Program Units That Also Satisfy the GIRs (36)
Unrestricted Electives 48
Total Units Beyond the GIRs Required for SB Degree 180–192
No subject can be counted both as part of the 17-subject GIRs and as part of the 180–192 units required beyond the GIRs. Every subject in the student's departmental program will count toward one or the other, but not both.
Notes
