About this course

Courses required:

Mathematics 31A, 31B, 32A, 32B, 33A, 33B, 61, Physics 1A or 6A, Program in Computing 10A, and two courses from Chemistry and Biochemistry 20A, 20B, Physics 1B, 1C, 6B, 6C, Program in Computing 10B through 97. Each course must be taken for a letter grade. The mathematics sequenced courses (Mathematics 31A, 31B, 32A, 32B, 33A, 33B) are calculated separately from the other preparation for the major courses and must be completed with a minimum overall 2.5 grade-point average and a grade of C or better in each course. The other preparation courses must be completed with a minimum overall 2.0 grade-point average and a grade of C- or better in each course.
