To satisfy the core requirements of the McKelvey School of Engineering, the following courses are required:
|Physics 117A, 118A ||8|
|Chem 111A, 112A, 151, 152 ||10|
|Math 132, 233, 217||11|
|Humanities/social sciences electives ||18|
To complete the core requirements of both chemical engineering and systems engineering, the following additional requirements apply:
|ChE 257 or Chem 257||2|
|ESE 317 ||4|
|EP 310 ||3|
|Biol 2960 ||4|
The balance of the curriculum is carefully structured to satisfy the combined degree requirements and to meet the objectives of the program. The general degree requirements include the residency and other applicable requirements of the University and the McKelvey School of Engineering.
The curriculum meets the requirements of both degrees and can be completed in four years. The total number of units required is 141. The semester course load exceeds the usual school-wide average of 15 units per semester, so you must be highly motivated to accomplish this objective in eight semesters. The course load in individual semesters may be lightened by attending summer school or by adding an additional semester. A number of courses (e.g. EP 310; MAE 320; ESE 309, 317, 326, 351, 441; and humanities and social sciences courses) are usually offered in the summer as well.
