The Bachelor of Science General Engineering, offered by the Department of General Engineering (Interdisciplinary) , is an interdisciplinary, broadly focused, and customizable program. The program is intended for students interested in understanding engineering practices as applied across different fields of study or emerging technologies. The first two years focus on courses in math, science and general education areas similar to that of other engineering curricula, but may include prerequisite courses required for upper division studies. The second two years include required engineering depth and breadth elective courses. Students can select one of the pre-approved engineering depth 4-course sequences (12 units) from an engineering program in the college. Two technical elective courses (6 units) can be chosen from other engineering programs or for supplementing the chosen depth courses. The academic breadth or minor requirement (12 units) allows students to take approved courses based on their career interests or pursue a minor degree, such as: Business, Computer Science, Bioinformatics, Green Engineering or Applied Computing for Behavioral and Social Scientists.
