Note: courses shown in bold are Chemical Engineering core courses. 

* waived for transfer students

** MICRO 200 or BIOL 200 "double count" to meet both B1a GE requirement and can substitute for CHEM 251 for the BS CHE.

*** Consult with the advisor regarding Approved Engineering Electives.The degree requirement of Approved Economics can be satisfied by any ECON course (from GE D.2),  CE 406 (Engineering Economics, also satisfies Engineering Elective), or other courses dealing with financial or management issues (from GE) as approved by the advisor

**** CHEM 320A&B (total 8 units) may be substituted by (1) CHEM 327 (3 units) plus 4 or 5 units of Science classes with lab component, OR (2) CHEM 322 A/B and CHEM 323 A/B (total 8 units)

& Take or register for State of California FE (Fundamentals of Engineering) Exam

The above 4-year roadmap assumes that a student does not claim GE waiver (3 or 6 untis).  

Consult with GE advisor regarding possible GE waivers according to your GE catalog year.
