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:

Lower Division Requirements of the Major:

ENGR 010 Introduction to EngineeringNo Current Equivalent
ME 020 Design and GraphicsEngin 4 Graphics in Design
EE 098 Introduction to Circuit AnalysisEngin 17 Circuits I
MATE 025 Introduction to MaterialsEngin 45 Prop of Materials
CMPE 030 Programming Concepts and MethodologyNo Current Equivalent
   OR
CMPE 046 Computer Engineering INo Current Equivalent

WST Prerequisite:

Beginning Fall 2014 the prerequisite for the WST is the completion of the CSU GE A3 with a grade of C or better. All students are strongly encouraged to complete a second English composition course as part of their lower division GE prior to transferring to SJSU (either to meet CSU GE Area A3 or C2). In doing this students will be more prepared to pass the WST and 100W course at SJSU.
Once the following recommended course has been completed with a grade of C or better, students should contact our testing office: 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 registration for upper division courses):
2nd English Composition/Critical Thinking Equivalent Transfer Course
any course approve for the IGETC Critical Thinking/Second semester English composition 1B area is highly recommended
No Current Equivalent
or
ENGL 001B Composition 2English 3 Introduction to Literature


IMPORTANT TRANSFER INFORMATION:

Prior to transferring to San Jose State University all transfers must earn at least 60 transferable semester units (90 quarter), including the CSU four basic skill courses required for CSU admission eligibility. Within those 60 semester/90 quarter units students are strongly encouraged to complete the following:

1. Lower Division Major Course Requirements (especially for STEM Majors):
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.

2. 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 Jose State University.

3. Second Semester English Composition highly recommended:
Complete the second semester English composition course (or equivalent) with a grade of "C" or better prior to registering for the WST and 100W course at SJSU. 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.

4. 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.
