Class of 2014 - S11 advising
you are currently a first year student about to register for the fall of your sophomore year
Welcome to Chemical Engineering! This semester you will first meet with Cindy Vicker who will explain everything about our program and prepare you to meet with your faculty advisor.
You should ordinarily take the following courses:
21-259 Calculus in Three-Dimensions
06-222 Sophomore Chemical Engineering Seminar**
09-106 Modern Chemistry II
xx-xxx Computer Sci.***/Physics II *
xx-xxx General Education Course
* Computer Science/Physics II: Students should complete 15-110 or 15-112 (Introductory/ Intermediate Programming) as well as 33-107 (Physics for Engineering Students II) by the end of the Sophomore year.
** For students pursuing a Chemical Engineering/Engineering and Public Policy double major, Chemical Engineering Seminar courses (06-222 & 06-322) are replaced by the 3 unit EPP Sophomore Seminar (19-102).
*** You may take 15-110 or 15-112. The 15-110 is an introductory course to programming that is 10 units, and the 15-112 is a more rigorous course in programming taught in Python, and will be 12 units.
It is important that you take 09-106 Modern Chem II if you don't already have credit for it, as this course is required for Lab I which is taught in the spring of next year. It is very difficult to take Lab I after your sophomore year due to scheduling and the time commitment junior and senior courses require.
If you have already completed 09-106 Modern Chem II, you could try to take Lab I, but the Fall session is reserved for science majors, so it is very likely you will be wait-listed and not get in.
