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 ENG 105 in the second semester; multilingual students may be advised into alternative English courses.
GE Area E: Lifelong Learning and Self-Development is satisfied upon completion of ENGR 100.
Depending on courses completed through Early Start, students in Pathway/Category III or IV may be required to enroll in a support course to complement their Quantitative Reasoning/B4 requirement. There are multiple course options for this pathway. Before enrolling in a B4 course, students should verify their MATH Pathway/Category in their Student Center. Information regarding the courses that correspond with your MATH Pathway/Category can be found on the Developmental Studies Office Website.
QR Category III students with a grade of B or higher in high school pre-calculus in the past year may be able to enroll in MATH 226. Please see a department advisor.
To avoid taking additional units, it is recommended that you meet the SF State Studies (AERM, GP, ES, SJ) requirements within your GE or major.
Lower-Division Modular Electives (3 units)
To avoid taking additional units, it is recommended that you meet U.S. and California Government (USG/CSLG) within Upper-Division GE.
Students must complete 18 units of upper-division Engineering units before registering for ENGR 696.
Upper-Division Major Electives (9 units)
Choice of upper-division electives must present a clearly identifiable educational objective and ensure that the program requirements in engineering science and design are met by all students. Distribution of credit units among engineering science and design is given in the Advising Guide. A study plan of intended upper-division electives must be approved by the student’s advisor and the program coordinator prior to the seventh semester of the engineering program.
A total of 9 units from the following list of courses is required, subject to the minimum number of units specified for each group. Courses selected for the controls (emphasis) elective may not be double-counted as upper-division electives.
ENGR 306 Electromechanical Systems (3 units)
ENGR 410 Process Instrumentation and Control (3 units) (Hidden Prerequisite for ENGR 411)
ENGR 470 Biomechanics (3 units)
