Undergraduate NE Curriculum

The NanoEngineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

All students follow the same basic science preparation and core set of classes in NanoEngineering during the first two years.

Every course (except NANO 1 or 4 and NANO 199) must be taken for a letter grade.

All NANO core courses are taught only once per year and are scheduled to be consistent with the curriculum shown below.

The courses listed here other than NANO are under the control of other departments. They may not be offered in the quarter shown here.  Each student is responsible for determining the prerequisites, when the courses are to be offered, and making a schedule of taking the courses that fit into his or her own graduation plan.

To view the current and past catalog information, please click here.  All courses are 4-units unless stated below.  For NANO course prerequisites click here.

After the sophomore year, students must choose an Engineering Focus. Click here for sample course work for each track.


*NANO 15: This course will be offered in the Fall and may be offered in the Winter Quarters. If you cannot register for NANO 15 in the Fall, you may enroll in MAE 8 in Winter or Spring Quarters, if it is being offered.  

****MATH 18:  Formerly MATH 20F

1General Education Requirements (forty-eight units): This requirement is intended to fulfill the general education requirements (G.E.) from respective colleges. The forty-eight units are shown for Warren College students as an example to fulfill the general education requirements. Students in other colleges need to adjust the plan to match their own college requirements.

2NanoEngineering Electives (eight units): This requirement must be chosen from among the upper-division NANO courses (NANO 100 - 199) offered by the department.

3Engineering Focus (twenty units): Students must select all five engineering courses from within one single major to constitute an engineering focus. However, students may take four courses in one major and the fifth in a different area, should scheduling conflicts occur. Pre-approved courses of each of the five focuses are listed here.
