Notes
* A minimum of 120 units is required for graduation.
1Chemistry 4A is for students majoring in chemistry or a closely related field.
2Engineering breadth: 9 units must be completed from the following list BioE 10, 102; CE 11, C30, 60, 70, 155; Des Inv 15; Engin 15, 25, 26, 27, 40; EE 16A, 16B; MSE 45, 45L, 111; ME 40, C85, 132.
3The Humanities/Social Sciences (H/SS) requirement includes two approved reading and composition courses and four additional approved courses, with which a number of specific conditions must be satisfied. Reading and Composition “A” and “B” must be completed by no later than the end of the sophomore year. The remaining courses may be taken at any time during the program. See coesandbox.berkeley.edu/hss for complete details and a list of approved courses.
4Students must acquire fluent programming skills as demonstrated by completion of coursework in a highlevel language such as Python, C, C++ or Java. This requirement may be completed by taking CS 61A or CS C8 or equivalent. The CS 9xx series selfpaced courses at UC Berkeley are intended for those already skilled as programmers in a highlevel language to learn a second language and thus are not appropriate for meeting this requirement. Junior transfer admits who have completed a programming course of 3 units or more in Python, C, C++, or Java have fulfilled this requirement.
^{5}IEOR 172 is an alternative course for Stat 134 or Stat 140. In semesters when IEOR 172 is offered, it is recommended that students take IEOR 172 instead of Stat 134 or 140. Students will receive unit credit for only one of these courses.
^{6}Students must take a minimum of seven courses from the list below:
 IEOR 115Industrial and Commercial Data Systems
 IEOR 130Methods of Manufacturing Improvement
 IEOR 142Introduction to Machine Learning and Data Analytics
 IEOR 150Production Systems Analysis
 IEOR 151Service Operations Design and Analysis
 IEOR 153Facilities Planning and Design
 IEOR 164Introduction to Optimization Modeling
 IEOR 166Decision Analysis
 IEOR 170Human Factors for Engineering Design
 IEOR 171Introduction to Design of Human Work Systems and Organization
7Free electives can be any technical or nontechnical course, a course of your interest offered by any department. There are no restrictions.
Note: IEOR 95, 185, 186, 190 series courses, 191, 192 and 195 cannot be used to fulfill any technical or engineering units or courses.

Notes
* A minimum of 120 units is required for graduation.
**A fifth semester is granted to transfer student admits who are missing at least three lower division technical courses, of at least 3 units each, for the IEOR major when they matriculate to UC Berkeley. Eligible transfer students must contact their ESS Adviser in order to request the fifth semester.
