Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science - Transfer Admission
The Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science offers the following undergraduate majors:
Applicants to the Henry Samueli School of Engineering & Applied Science must have a minimum 3.30 GPA at the time of application to be considered for admission and by the time of entrance must have attained junior
standing (60 semester/90 quarter units) and completed preparation for the selected major (see below). Please note that admission to the Henry Samueli School of Engineering & Applied Science is highly selective.
Two transferable courses in English composition are required.
Calculus and analytic geometry, calculus of several variables, differential equations, and linear algebra.
Calculus-based courses with labs in mechanics of solids, vibration, wave motion, sound, fluids, heat, electricity and magnetism, electromagnetic waves, light, and relativity.
Two terms of general chemistry with lab.
Only one course in general chemistry is required for Computer Science, Computer Science and Engineering, and Electrical Engineering.
One year of chemistry with lab is required for Bioengineering and Chemical Engineering, and applicants to those majors are encouraged to complete one year of organic chemistry as well.
One course in Java, C Programming, or C++.
Applicants to Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or Computer Science and Engineering should take C++.
Applicants to Bioengineering: one year of biology with lab for the major (cellular, molecular, and genetic).
Applicants must complete at least one course from the humanities or social sciences for UC eligibility and are encouraged to complete up to four courses in those areas and one life science elective. (Completion of IGETC or UC Reciprocity is not required/encouraged for entrance to these majors.) Students may satisfy core requirements by completing engineering courses in statics, dynamics, strength of materials, properties of materials, and circuit analysis, depending on their major.
