- The two "pure" mathematics electives may be any courses from among the upper division mathematics courses in the Math/CS Department excluding Math 165 and 166. Highly recommended is Math 122 (Prob. & Stats. I); Math 102 (Adv. Calc.) and Math 123 (Prob. & Stats. II) are also suggested.
- Of the three computer science electives, one must be chosen from among: CSci 161 (Automata), CSci 166 (Num. Analysis), or CSci 167 (Bool. Alg.). The other two may be any upper division computer science course, not already taken to satisfy a requirement: CSci 161, 162 (Formal Lang), 164 (Comp. Simul.), 165 (Lin. Prog.), 166, 167, 168 (Graphics), 169 (Prog. Langs.), 181 (Appl. Cryptog.), 182 (Digital Steganography), or any of the following three upper division mathematics courses: Math 144 (Part. Diff. Eq.), 176 (Combin.), 177 (Graph Th.).
- The Computer Engineering elective must be chosen from courses offered in the Computer Engineering Department with courses number 100 or above.
- One additional computer-related elective must be taken from the lists of courses mentioned in note 2 or 3 above.
- Math 100 is highly recommended to fulfill the English Composition requirement, but may not be taken to fulfill any mathematics and computer science upper division requirements for students majoring in mathematics or in computer science. Students are free to take any other course approved as fulfilling the 3rd English Writing requirement.
- Students are encouraged to choose elective computing courses according
to one of the following tracks:
*Foundations:*CSci 161, Math 176, Math 177, Comp. Engin. 173 (Logic Prog.)

*Software:*CSci 161, 169, Comp. Engin. 174 (Soft. Engin.), Comp. Engin. 176 (Soft. Tools) or 178 (Database)

*Numerical Computation:*Math 144, CSci 165, 166, Comp. Engin. 145 (Paral. Prog.)

*Graduate Preparation:*CSci 166, Math 176, 177, Comp. Engin. 175 (Compilers)

At least 12 upper division courses (60 units) are required for graduation.
Thus, if the English Composition course is **not** an upper division
course, at least two of the free electives must be upper division courses.
