Lower Division Course Requirements

Community College Course Equivalents

In order to be successful in this major you must complete the following articulated courses prior to transfer, earning grades of "C" or better on the first attempt. Students who struggle to achieve this should strongly consider selecting a different major.
The BS - Engineering program offers students an opportunity for interdisciplinary engineering education not available through traditional single-discipline programs. The curriculum is designed to provide flexibility for students to meet their educational goals with emphasis on various options such as: engineering management, bioengineering, and engineering entrepreneurship. Courses listed below are required for all engineering students. Student's program of study should be prepared in consultation with major advisor.

Preparation for the Major:

General Chemistry Equivalent Transfer Course
(or CHEM 1A taken at SJSU)
CHEM 101 General Chemistry I (*)
   OR
Chem 102 General Chemistry II
Note: This major only requires completion of one semester or two quarters of General Chemistry in lieu of CHEM 1A taken at SJSU.
MATH 030 Calculus IMath 265 Calculus with Analytic Geometry I (*)
MATH 031 Calculus IIMath 266 Calculus with Analytic Geometry II (*)
MATH 032 Calculus IIIMath 267 Calculus with Analytic Geometry III
MATH 129A Linear Algebra IMath 270 Elementary Linear Algebra (*)
CONTENT CREDIT ONLY
MATH 133A Ordinary Differential EquationsMath 275 Ordinary Differential Equations (*)
CONTENT CREDIT ONLY
Community College math courses articulated with SJSU's Math 129A or Math 133A will meet course content requirements for the major but will not receive upper division credit.
PHYS 050 General Physics/MechanicsPhysics 1 Mechanics of Solids w/Lab
   OR
Physics 2 Mechanics of Fluids, Heat and Sound w/Lab
PHYS 051 General Physics/Electricity and MagnetismPhysics 3 Electricity and Magnetism w/Lab

Lower Division Requirements of the Major:

ENGR 010 Introduction to EngineeringNo Current Equivalent
MATE 025 Introduction to MaterialsEngGen 151 Materials of Engineering
EE 098 Introduction to Circuit AnalysisNo Current Equivalent
CE 099 Introductory StaticsEngGen 131 Statics
CMPE 046 Computer Engineering INo Current Equivalent

All students must satisfy the following prerequisite (or equivalent) prior to registering for the WST and 100W courses at SJSU {Academic Senate policy S05-8}.

Once the following course requirement is completed (earning a grade of C or better), students should contact http://testing.sjsu.edu to register for the WST exam at SJSU. Passing the WST prior to your first semester at SJSU will prevent delays in registering for upper division courses:
ENGL 001B Composition 2
A "C" or better is required in English 1B (a "C-" is not acceptable).
ENGLISH 103 Composition and Critical Thinking
   OR
ENGLISH 103H Composition and Critical Thinking- Honors
or
2nd English Composition Equivalent Transfer CourseENGLISH 102 College Reading and Composition II
   OR
ENGLISH 102H College Reading and Composition II - Honors
A course articulated to SJSU's English 1B is recommended, however any course approved for the IGETC second semester English composition area would be accepted to meet this requirement (a grade of "C" or better is required).

LDTP Approved Courses (*)

The following Los Angeles Trade Technical College courses are approved for the following LDTP course descriptors shown on the right.
CHEM 101General Chemistry for Science Majors I, with Lab
Math 265Single Variable Calculus I
Math 266Single Variable Calculus II
Math 270Introduction to Linear Algebra
Math 275Ordinary Differential Equations
LDTP courses are acceptable "in lieu of" each other.
LDTP courses are not necessarily "equivalent" or "identical" in content.


IMPORTANT TRANSFER INFORMATION:

Prior to transferring to San José State University all transfers must earn at least 60 transferable semester units (90 quarter). Within those 60 semester/90 quarter units students are strongly encouraged to complete the following:

1. General Education Requirements:
Complete all the CSU GE Breadth requirements at the community college (39 semester units/58 quarter units). The approved courses for each area can be found at www.ASSIST.org under the link "CSU GE-Breadth Certification Courses" for your college. Many of these courses can be double counted to meet the major requirements shown above, so choose your courses wisely. Please see your college counselor/advisor to review your general education in order to receive FULL OR PARTIAL CERTIFICATION PRIOR TO TRANSFER to San José State University.

2. Second Semester English Composition:
Complete the second semester English composition course (or equivalent) as it is a prerequisite to registering for the WST and 100W courses at SJSU. Students must earn a grade of "C" or better in this course (a "C-" is not acceptable). Approved courses can be found above within the lower division major requirements. Be sure to select this course as part of your CSU GE-Breadth 39 semester unit requirements. Once this course is complete, students are encouraged to take the WST exam at SJSU to avoid delays in enrollment for other SJSU required courses. To register for the WST contact our Testing office at testing.sjsu.edu.

3. American Institutions Requirement (US 1, US 2, and US 3 must be completed):
This requirement is normally 2 courses and can be taken as part of your CSU GE-Breadth 39 semester unit requirements (GE Area D and sometimes Area C). The approved courses can be found at www.ASSIST.org under the link "CSU US History, Constitution, and American Ideals Courses" for your college.

4. Physical Education Requirement:
Two courses are required and must include at least two different activities. Completion of these courses will clear the graduation requirement at SJSU.

5. Lower Division Major Course Requirements:
Complete as many of the lower division courses required for the major as possible. Many of these courses may be double counted as part of the CSU GE-Breadth 39 semester unit requirements. These requirements are shown above.
