Major requirements for the College of Engineering

Students applying for transfer admission to selective majors must meet additional course and GPA requirements. All courses must be taken for a letter grade with no grade less than C. All major preparatory course requirements must be completed by the end of spring term before fall enrollment.

All majors in the College of Engineering are selective and have additional transfer requirements. Overall UC-transferable coursework must meet a minimum 3.10 GPA听and a technical 3.20 GPA, Computer Science requires a 3.4 GPA for each series.

Applicants applying for a TAG must meet higher GPA requirements:听Both overall UC-transferable coursework and major preparation GPAs must meet a minimum 3.5 GPA.

Students are expected to take courses comparable to the 春色视频 course requirements as long as they are offered at the California Community College (CCC) they attend. When the indicates 鈥渘o comparable course鈥 or 鈥渘ot articulated,鈥 the selective major course requirement will be waived for 春色视频 admission/TAG, but must be completed after enrolling at 春色视频. You can find CCC courses that are comparable to UC听Davis courses using the ASSIST website.

To be well prepared, it is strongly recommended that students complete all lower-division coursework requirements for their major, as shown on the .

TIP: If you are preparing for multiple Engineering majors, start by completing the common major preparation courses that all Engineering majors share and then complete any additional requirements required for each major listed above.
