Double Counting of courses to meet GE Requirements:

Out of the 48 units of GE required, 3 units of Category B1a, Biological Sciences are waived for most of the Engineering Majors, CECS 100 can meet 3 units of Category A3, The three 1 unit courses ENGR 101,102 and CECS 105 together can meet 3 units of Category E, PHYS 151 can meet 3 units of Category B1b and MATH 122 can meet 3 units of Category B2.

* Both CECS 490A and 490B can be credited towards 6 units of GE Capstone F requirements.

Therefore because of 3 units of waiver and 18 units of double counting with major requirements, a total of only 27 units are required. Adding 95 units of major requirements, the total units for the program is 122 units. However it can be less by choosing appropriate major elective. See below.

**One of the Major Electives ECON 300, if taken, will double count for 3 units for GE Category D2.

** One of the major electives CE 406, if taken, will count for 3 units of GE Category F (Capstone)
