ENR2.4 Major Requirements

ENR2.4.1 The College of Engineering has approved majors in Bioengineering, Business Informatics, Chemical Engineering ( Biochemical, Bioengineering, Chemical and Nanotechnology options), Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering (Air Pollution Control Technology and Water pollution Control Technology options), Mechanical Engineering (Design and Manufacturing, Energy and Environment, General Mechanical Engineering, and Mechanical of Materials and Structures concentrations), and Material Sciences and Engineering. (Am 11 Nov 93)(Am 25 May 00) (Am 25 May 2010)

ENR2.4.2 A major shall consist of not fewer than 50 upper division units.

ENR2.4.3 Not more than 9 units of courses in the 190-199 series may be counted in fulfilling the upper division units needed for the major. (Am 11 Nov 93)

ENR2.4.4 The College of Engineering will not allow simultaneous enrollment in more than one degree program. A student may be considered for a second Baccalaureate only upon completion of degree requirements in his/her first degree, providing he/she meets the spirit of Regulation 650 of the Academic Senate, Candidacy for a Second Bachelor's Degree. (Am 25 May 00)

ENR2.4.5 A student in good standing may elect to take a second major within the College of Engineering. A declaration of a second major must be signed by the Dean of the college and filed by the student with the Dean's office. A course used to satisfy the requirements for one major may be used to fulfill the requirements for a second major as well. However, of the required upper division units, a minimum of 24 must be unique to each major. (Am 25 May 00)

ENR2.4.6 A student registered in the College of Engineering, and in good standing, may elect a second major in another college. A declaration of such second major must be signed by the Deans of both colleges and filed by the student with the primary college. A student will meet requirements of both primary and secondary majors and the college requirements of the primary major if they are both in the same baccalaureate class. If the two majors lead to different degree designations (B.S. and B. A.), that fact will be noted on the transcript, but only one diploma indicating both degree designations will be issued upon successful completion of such a double major program. Furthermore, if the double major is a mixed B.S./B.A., the college requirements for both majors must be met. A course used to satisfy the requirements for one major may be used to fulfill the requirements for a second major as well. However, of the required upper division units, a minimum of 24 must be unique to each major. (Am 25 May 00)

ENR2.4.7 A student who has declared a double major may graduate in one major upon the completion of all requirements for that major, but may not continue in the University for completion of the second major. (En 25 May 00)

ENR2.4.8 A student in good standing may request transfer from one major to another by filing a petition of change with the Dean's office. (Am 25 May 00)

ENR2.4.9 A grade point average of at least 2.00 in upper division courses taken in the field of the major is a graduation requirement. (Ed 25 May 00)
