 Total Units127

To avoid taking additional units, it is recommended that you meet LLD and SFSU Studies requirements (AERM, GP, ES, SJ) within your GE


MATH 60 and/or MATH 70 are required prerequisites toMATH 124 unless you score 50 or higher on ELM or have an ELM exemption


ENG 114 can only be taken if you complete Directed Self-Placement (DSP) and select ENG 114; if you choose ENG 104/ENG 105 through DSP you will satisfy A2 upon successful completion of 105 in the second semester; multilingual students may be advised into alternative English courses


Area A3 (Critical Thinking) is satisfied upon completion of ENGR 205 andENGR 201 or ENGR 213


Upper Division General Education, Physical and Life Sciences (UD-B) is satisfied upon completion of ENGR 300 and one of ENGR 301 or ENGR 302


 You must complete 21 units of upper-division engineering units before registering for ENGR 696


You must take at least one GWAR (GW) course
