† Course complementary to UAS minor

Students graduating under prior catalog years

For students graduating on catalogs prior to Fall 2016:

  1. Science electives listed above may be substituted for BIOL 190 or GEOL 101, see advisor
  2. Students must take a total of 18 units of Technical Electives. CEE 426 (required for Fall 2016 and beyond) may be substituted for a Technical Elective.
  3. Students must take an Emphasis Capstone in lieu of the above Design Elective. Courses marked with * do not fulfill the Emphasis Capstone requirement.
