This chart demonstrates how a student can schedule all courses required for both the B.S. degree and the M.S. degree into 5 years. Individuals should refer to the sample curriculum for the B.S. degree in Computer Science for additional details about upper division courses and the recommended courses for the four tracks. In this chart, "COEN" indicates courses offered by the Computer Engineering Department and "CSci" indicates courses from the Mathematics and Computer Science Department.
The sample 5 year curriculum includes courses for the B.S. degree (minimum 175 needed), and 46 units for the M.S. degree (minimum 45 needed). The three free electives indicated in the Junior year in parentheses provide the opportunity for 12 more undergraduate or graduate units.
The units for each course is indicated in square brackets following the course name (including a "u"). Some upper division courses from the Computer Engineering Department are 4 units rather than the more common 5. Students must remember that they need a total of 175 units to complete the B.S. degree, of which 60 units must be from upper division courses (usually 12 courses). If a student chooses for a core curriculum course some upper division option, that course fulfills the core requirement and its units also count toward the 60 upper division units needed for the B.S. degree.
Students are also reminded that the standard maximum number of units permitted per quarter is 19. Overloading is not permitted without written permission of the Drahmann Advising Center.
