The department requires a grade of C or better in Engl 150, 250 (or 250H), and 314 (or 314H).
1These courses to be selected in consultation with SE advisers from a list of approved courses. They must include courses to satisfy university and college general education requirements. These courses include courses, or categories of courses, that may need to be met, such as international perspectives, U.S. diversity, language, arts and humanities, and social sciences. The courses should also include electives. Pass/Not Pass credit is not accepted.
2Software Engineering electives must be chosen to satisfy SE requirements concerning content, distribution, and level. All technical electives must be chosen from lists approved by the software engineering program. Details are available in the ECpE or ComS Undergraduate Student Services Offices or on the Web. Pass/Not Pass credit is not accepted. One credit of SE 490 may be used to partially meet these requirements.
3Students who take the 4-credit lab courses CPR E 288, CPR E 308 and CPR E 381 instead of the corresponding 3 credit alternatives can apply the additional credits towards Supplementary Electives. The total number of credits required in Software Engineering Program remains same for all students.
*Core professional curriculum. A student must have a minimum grade-point average of 2.00 in this group of courses in order to graduate.
**Software engineering students must have completed CprE 281 and have obtained a C- or better in ComS 229 to enroll in ComS 321.
