Suggested Course Study for 3/2 Combined Plan Program in Engineering - Computer Science Sequence

The courses in the computer science sequence prepare students to transfer to the California Institute of Technology or to the School of Engineering at Columbia University, New York City, for two years of work leading to the Bachelor of Science degree.

Caltech awards the B. S. degree in Engineering. The Columbia B. S. degree is in a variety of engineering majors including Civil, Electrical, Mechanical or Nuclear Engineering; or a selection of majors in Applied Science, Operations Research, Materials Science, Management Engineering, and others. The Occidental degree is in the Combined Plan Program.

{} 2-unit courses

# CS 161 should be completed by the end of the sophomore year.

$ Students usually take CS 161 and CS 211 in the same year. We recommend taking them in either the first or second year.

& Students can take CS 311 after completing CS 211.

% The Chemistry requirement is Chemistry 120 or 130 depending on placement. Please consult the Chemistry Department.
