Permitted substitutions and electives for the BSCS

Last Modified: August 12, 2014

The following substitutions are permitted for those students who took the
courses as Computer Engineering majors. They are permitted for
Software Engineering majors for those courses that may be counted
toward that major. These subsitutions may be allowed for students
transferring from other engineering majors; please consult Prof. Jeff
Smith in the Computer Science department.

These permitted substitutions may change from semester to semester.
Students may not count both a CS course and an equivalent course from
another department toward the BS in CS.

No more than 6 units of CE 124, CE 125, CE 143, CE 146, and CE 155 may
count toward the BSCS, and no more than 12 units of CMPE courses may count as electives.
Note that there is a
constraint on electives that may count toward the BSCS degree.

* Students who complete CS 46A and CS 46B may use CMPE 46 in place of
CS 49C for the BSCS.

** This substitution is permitted for all students, not just those in
certain majors.
