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.

Preparation for the Major:

General Chemistry Equivalent Transfer Course
(or CHEM 1A taken at SJSU)
Chem 1A General Chemistry
   OR
CHEM 1B General Chemistry (*)
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 60 First Calculus Course (*)
MATH 031 Calculus IIMath 70 Second Calculus Course (*)
MATH 032 Calculus IIIMath 80 Third Calculus Course (*)
MATH 133A Ordinary Differential Equations
Community College Math courses articulated with SJSU's Math 133A will meet the course content requirements for the major but will not receive upper division credit.
No Current Equivalent
PHYS 050 General Physics/MechanicsPhys 3A Physics for Science & Engineering- Mechanics
PHYS 051 General Physics/Electricity and MagnetismPhys 3B Physics for Science & Engineering- Electricity & Magnetism
GEOL 002 Introduction to Earth ScienceNo Current Equivalent

Lower Division Requirements of the Major:

CE 008 Plane SurveyingNo Current Equivalent
CE 095 Theory and Application of StaticsEngr 35 Statics
EE 098 Introduction to Circuit AnalysisEngr 17 Electrical Engineering Circuits
ENGR 010 Introduction to EngineeringNo Current Equivalent
MATE 025 Introduction to MaterialsNo Current Equivalent
CE 020 Engineering Graphics, CAD and ProgrammingNo Current Equivalent
OR
ME 020 Design and GraphicsDraft 51A Industrial Drafting I
   OR
Engr 3A Engineering Graphics
   OR
Engr 3B Engineering Graphics
And
ME 030 Computer ApplicationsNo Current Equivalent
Note: Courses articulated to both ME 020 and ME 030 would be used to satisfy CE 20.

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).
ENGL 2 Introduction to Literature/Composition
   OR
ENGL 3 Argumentative and Critical Writing
   OR
ENGL 3H Honors Argumentative and Critical Writing
or
2nd English Composition Equivalent Transfer CourseENGL 4 Critical Analysis of Literature
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 Long Beach City College courses are approved for the following LDTP course descriptors shown on the right.
CHEM 1BGeneral Chemistry for Science Majors II, with Lab
Math 60Single Variable Calculus I
Math 70Single Variable Calculus II
Math 80Multivariable Calculus
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.
