Sample Programs

Sample Senior/Fifth Year Programs

Senior Year: For students admitted to the Five-Year Program, it is highly recommended that they plan on taking at least one course during their senior year in the new Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology being formed in the of College of Engineering (see http://cet.berkeley.edu). The current course offerings include the following, and we expect the list to increase over the next year:

  • IEOR 190B/E 198: Entrepreneurial Marketing and Finance
  • IEOR 171: Organizational Leadership
  • IEOR 190A: Engineering Entrepreneurship

In addition, the students should plan on taking at least one design intensive upper division course in their area of specialty within EECS. Seniors accepted to the fifth year program will be given priority access to these courses, which include:

  • Computer Engineering: EECS 150, CS 152
  • Computer Software: CS 160, CS 169
  • Computer Systems: CS 162, CS 194
  • Computer Applications: CS 184, CS 186
     
  • Integrated Circuits: EE 140, EE 141
  • Communications: EE 122, EE 142
  • Semiconductors: EE 143
  • Signals and Systems: EE 192

Fifth Year/M.S. Programs: We expect 5th year students to follow the regular M.S. program, meeting all of the requirements for the EECS M.S. degree, while also broadening their experiences. Note: We believe that students should use the final semester of their senior year to formulate and begin work on their M.S. project to insure they will be able to finish it by the end of their fifth year.

Fall

EE/CS 299 (1 unit)
2 x Grad EECS courses in area of technical depth (8 units)
1-2 x courses outside EECS in area of breadth (4-6 units)

Spring

EE/CS 299 (2 units)
1 x Grad EECS course in area of technical depth (4 units)
1-2 x courses outside EECS in area of breadth (4-6 units)

Note: The ability for program students to transfer units from the second semester of their senior year, including areas outside of EECS (e.g., one of the CET courses discussed above), should make such an intensive program significantly more manageable.
